Exclusive: John Abraham on why he thinks he is like Akshay Kumar

John Abraham has created a niche for himself in the industry with his films like Madras Café, Batla House, Parmanu, Satyameva Jayate and many more. The actor has chosen characters of a tough guy working towards the betterment of the country and the audience has accepted him with open arms in them repeatedly. John, the poster prince of everything sexy has gone way beyond the jism analogy to reveal a beautiful mind. The actor has clearly hailed for producing films that are evocative yet entertaining in the industry. Not just that, he is known for playing roles that are gritty and flexing his box-office muscle with elan as the man has finally deciphered his method to stay relevant in B-town.

In a recent chat with Filmfare, John spoke about his equation with Akshay Kumar. The duo was seen together in Desi Boyz and this year they clashed at the box-office with John’s Batla House and Akshay’s Mission Mangal, yet the two of them seemed unaffected by all the buzz about a tussle at the cash counters that surrounded them.  John opened up about why he is fond of Akshay, he said, “Akshay and I are not only comfortable with each other, we also love spending time with each other. We share the same lifestyle. Our physicality and mindsets match. We both lead a disciplined life. We don’t like to party. Loud music gives me migraine. We don’t drink, we sleep early and wake up early. Hopefully, Akshay and I will work together in a project soon. Also, while I am a friendly guy, I can’t speak to everyone in a fancy dress, who comes in a fancy car. That’s not my world. My world is of real people who come without bodyguards.”
