Ever since he made his big screen debut close to six years back with Jism, John Abraham has been seen in quite a few action movies. Kabul Express, Zinda, Kaal, Karam, Elaan and Dhoom are some of them. However, in none of these movies did he get a chance to go full on in action mode since most of them were set as thrillers rather than hard core actioners. However, John now promises that he would change the face of body making in an action film which he is about to sign in quick time.
"If you thought that Dostana was good then wait till next year. I am going to surprise quite a few and in the process change the face of body making. I have tasted blood with Dostana and have now mastered the art. I am now being able to explore all that I can do with my body. I will soon sign an action film", says John Abraham in a super confident tone after his Dostana opened to favourable response all over.
What has made him suddenly wake up to action flicks? "I have been doing action movies for last so many years but somehow the kind of role where I could get my body in motion hasn't really come to me. I want to crack that now because I have the required physicality to carry such a role. My audience has been hungry to see a lot more of me after Dostana. Now I want to give them something so visually enthralling that they would love me even more", winks John.
Does he want to reveal this secret project of his? Replies John, "All that I can reveal right now is that I am in talks with a couple of directors and there should be a decision on this soon. In any case, very soon I begin shooting for David Dhawan's Hook Ya Crook which is commercial cinema at its best. It is a huge large scale comedy that would keep me engaged from January till March. After this I begin work for Abbas Mustan's next which has the most beautiful script that I have read. The film's shooting would be during May to June timeframe. It would be only after these two films that my action flick would begin", details John.
Meanwhile, he has just wrapped up his next with Yash Raj Films which is tentatively titled New York. The film is expected to arrive towards the latter part of the first half of 2009 though ever-so-secretive Yash Raj Films are yet to announce the exact timelines.
