John Abraham Is Not Interested In Doing South Indian Remakes Like Kabir Singh
John Abraham shared that he doesn't want to follow the trend of working on South Indian remakes like that of Kabir Singh, as the film proved to be a massive hit in cinemas
Bollywood star John Abraham has worked in a number of films. Making his debut in 2003 with Jism, the actor has come a long way and starred in big productions such as Dhoom, Dostana, Desi Boyz and many others. While he has worked on a number of comedy films, it's only in recent times, that the star seems to have started taking up more serious and patriotic roles when it comes to choosing a film. Madras Cafe, Satyameva Jayate, Parmanu and the recently released Batla House, are just some of the many films where he portrayed a patriot. Despite all the different genres he has done, the actor stated that his major motivation has always been solid content.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, John shared, "To me, being bankable is all about cutting the cloth according to its length, so that a film can work for everyone. So, I focus on creating very strong content. And when I create that kind of content, no amount of money can match the guts that I have. You know, my ideas are usually bigger than my budgets." With Shahid Kapoor's Kabir Singh faring well at the box office, the actor feels that there might be more remakes in the coming years. "After Kabir Singh’s success, I am sure there will be whole lot of flights that will go towards South India. But I don’t think I’d follow that trend. I would rather do something different. In fact, the minute people ask me, ‘Why are you doing this different film?’, I know in my mind that I am going to do it."
Along with trying to work on different kinds of films, that not many actors are willing to do, John also wants to create a strong image of his production house. He stated, "If audiences get to know that I’m producing a film, then they should feel that they ought to watch it as it’s going to be completely different. They must be like, ‘This guy comes with interesting stories'." John has been keeping busy these past few months and has a number of projects lined up for the future. He will be next seen in Pagalpanti, followed by Mumbai Saga and Attack.
