The success of an actor does not depend on money he is able to earn at the box office, Bollywood heartthrob John Abraham says.
He feels that the trade is obsessed with box office and after a point the audience do not judge a star’s popularity based on rupees.
The “Rocky Handsome” star says he is aware a film’s success or failure depends on whether viewers are connected with it, but that is not in an actor’s hands.
“I believe if a film doesn’t do well, you have to understand it didn’t connect and if it does well, it connected. But there’s nothing you can do about it. I don’t think after a point people are going to judge your stardom or popularity based on those numbers,” the actor said.
“Trade will do that, they like doing that. Let them do that. As an audience, and the rest of us, we have to just enjoy the film,” he said.
The actor, who made his debut in 2003 with “Jism”, went on to star in films like “Saaya” and “Paap”, before getting a big breakthrough with “Dhoom”.
John has since then appeared in films like “Dostana”, “Garam Masala”, “New York” and “Madras Cafe”. The actor says he never feels the box office pressure and wants to be moved by the script when he is signing a film. – CINEWS
