In his new film Fillum City directed by debutant Deven Khote, John Abraham plays himself.
“I"m playing John Abraham. And believe me, it"s not easy. I keep looking for myself in the character and find there are so many things that I want to keep for myself. I"m trying to act and dress as I do in real life. It"s tough because you"re constantly trying to 'act" like yourself."
Not that John is a private person. But he does wish people wouldn"t put out misinformation about him.
“I believe the websites have put out stories that I"m doing an international film called American Empire. I haven"t even read the script. So where"s the question of my doing it? Doing international films isn"t a burning ambition for me."
Though an enthusiastic voter John couldn"t be part of Karan Johar"s short-film featuring most of Bollywood"s youth icons to promote voting awareness.
“Would you believe I was part of that project from the start. I sat with the director Tarun Mansukhani and Karan and we discussed the idea. But on the day we were to shoot I was down with a viral fever. I"d have loved to work with Tarun. He"s a wonderful boy. Hopefully we"ll be doing the Dostana sequel shortly."
