John Abraham ,who is a fitness freak, does not approve of the new Bollywood fad to put on weight for a role, post Amir Khan and Salman Khan did it for their respective films.
In a meeting to a source ,John Abraham said that he doesn’t trust in making his body do a yo-yo between movies. He says, I try and keep my body in the same shape 365 days of the year. For me, being fit is a way of life, not a phase in life. Unless, of course, the role requires me to go obese, which I would gladly do. I work out and eat healthy all year round.”
Actors put on and shed pounds for movies, depending upon the kind of film they are doing and the kind of physical preparing they have to ready for that. But this constant fluctuation is bad for the body.
Someone like John, who believes totally in being fit all the time would not even consider it. “The way I am being cast now in a particular manner or particular role requires me to be physically fit, be it ‘Rocky Handsome’, ‘Dishoom’ or ‘Force 2’, so I am maintaining that shape. But after that, I am ready to do anything that a role demands.” – CINEWS
