Actor John Abraham, one of the most popular in this generation of Bollywood personalities, says his struggles in showbiz have become harder with time as he has become tougher on himself.
The actor who started as a model ventured into Hindi film industry in 2003 with Jism and now even produces movies.
Asked whether being someone without the backing of film families has a tough time at the start he said: “I am still struggling. Even today, after Dishoom, I struggle, but the struggle is of different kind. The struggles are getting harder today because I am getting tougher on myself. The struggle is about being fitter, stronger and faster.”
“The struggle is about finding better scripts… It’s about reducing the probability of failure, so the struggle is of a different kind. I really did not find that (entry into filmdom) much of a struggle,” added the 43-year-old.
For him, being an “actor is tough, but fun”, and being a producer is the “most difficult”.
“As an actor, I’m open to working with different producers. Someone I deeply respect and love is Aditya Chopra. Someone who is my really close friend and I really like working as a producer with is Karan Johar,” added John, who finds it “daunting” to find scripts to produce under his banner John Abraham Entertainment.
“I think people like hard-core quality content-driven films, and I feel it is my production house that looks out for the best. I think it’s very daunting to find the next best script that will entertain the audience,” he added. – CINEWS
