With a wide variety of film genres under his belt, John Abraham has come a very long way since he debuted in 2003, paving his own way from actor to producer. Understanding his audience, Abraham recently spoke to the media about his work, and mentioned how he wants to stay away from current trends that are appearing within the film making business.
“To me, being bankable is all about cutting the cloth according to its length, so that it [a film] can work for everyone,” Hindustan Times reports the actor-producer say when asked about the success of his projects.
“After ‘Kabir Singh’s’ (2019) success, I am sure there will be whole lot of flights that will go towards south India (laughs). 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,” he went on to add.
Always having worked on budgets of a slightly smaller scale, Abraham explained, “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 (laughs).”
“To me, it’s very simple. 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,” he added.
In the meantime, Abraham is still busy being in front on of the camera, where he will next be seen in Anees Bazmee’s ‘Pagalpanti’, which is set to hit the big screen on 8th November.
