JohnJohn Abraham speaks...
On life after break-up
Life’s still the same (after the split), but I’d really not talk about anything… I’ve not planned anything in my life. I just want to do good films. That’s all what I want to do at this point.
On getting hitched
There’s nothing yet that I’ve thought of. I don’t know when is that going to happen. But when it does happen, everybody will know. As of now, I’m more focus on my work than anything else.
On getting choosy
I do just one film a year and that’s because with that I kind of change my look (for the character). I think people appreciate that. It’s deliberate. The idea is to experiment and that’s what I enjoy.
On weight loss/gain
I lost 16 kilos for Aashayein and then I put on over eight kilos for Force. Now I’ve already lost eight kilos for a film called I Me Aur Main, which I’m co-producing. I enjoy the whole process.
On singing, direction
Yes, I’m going to sing in Shootout At Wadala. The only thing that is left now is to direct, and I’ll definitely direct soon, but that soon is not before five or six years. Till then I just want to enjoy acting.
