Manya Surve is my answer to critics: John Abraham



Actor John Abraham too is upset for actor Sanjay Dutt like many other Bollywood celebrities. At a recent event in Delhi on the day of Dutt’s arrest when he was asked to comment, he refrained from saying much, but all he said was, “I am sad...and my heart goes out to him.”

John, who is currently basking in the success of his films and a National Awards trophy, feels a lot of pressure to be a part of good films. “We are just one film old (as a production house) and there is a lot of pressure, especially after winning the National Award. Professionally, it was the highest point in my career and I am very happy that as a producer, I am able to make my kind of cinema,” says John who is currently on a high —professionally as well as personally.

For all those who thought that John, who started off as a model, can never act or make good films, should re-think. “If you look back at my films now, you will appreciate the performances far more because the audiences have matured. So, contentious people, who in the past have probably looked down and said John Abraham is a model, will now probably will re-think on the entire issue. My character of Manya Surve in Shootout at Wadala, in a way, is my answer back to people saying — ‘Listen, I have done this; now please, let’s move on’,” says John.
