The name John Abraham may be synonymous with action films when it comes to Bollywood but the actor feels that our action movies don't match up to the ones made in the West.
He was quoted saying to a leading daily, "Action is not about performing backflips or saving a girl. It is about having the attitude of an action star. To do action, you need to have guts. If you don't like this genre, you don't get there (achieve success). Very few of us get the chance to become action heroes. I'm fortunate to be in this space. There's a huge vacuum here and I enjoy this space."
John further quips that while he enjoys receiving appreciation for his performances, he also feels that one should be prepared for the brickbats too.
He added, "Being a star is also a mindset. It's all in your head. I don't think I am a big star. I live like a middle-class guy. If I have to have tea at a stall, I go ahead and do it. I don't need bodyguards around me. That's probably because I am good enough to handle 20 people."
Meanwhile, the actor is quite excited about his upcoming film Force 2 and is currently busy with the film's promotion schedules.
