John Abraham almost follows in the footsteps of Aamir Khan and Kangna Ranaut who choose not to attend awards functions. The actor has recently called awards “a joke”.
During a ‘Dishoom’ promotional event, Abraham and co-star Varun Dhawan disagreed about awards. Abraham is quoted by Deccan Chronicle, “I never go for awards functions. I don�۪t want any awards. They�۪ve become a joke. I don�۪t think going for award functions is wrong, but I can�۪t do it”.
He went on to say that he also doesn’t really want to be seen doing performances for awards functions, “I can�۪t dance on stage for 500 people; I can�۪t dance at functions. I�۪ve heard how people talk about actors who perform on stage. Performing at these award functions would make me feel like a monkey”.
Abraham also spoke about being part of the rat race, so to speak, “I don�۪t look at the work other people do; I concentrate on my own work. I don�۪t go to parties and I sleep by 9.30 pm. I meet some of my friends from the film industry when they�۪re coming home after a party while I�۪m on my morning jog. The beauty of this industry is in its acceptance”.
‘Dishoom’ released on 29th July.
