    Interview with John Abraham

    Saturday, March 11, 2006
    The mega stardom and super success that top Bollywood heartthrobs achieve is something that would disorient just about anybody. Weve seen once approachable actors become unapproachable and sometimes even rather high handed when their success goes to their heads.

    But happily, theres no danger of any such thing happening to someone whos one of the biggest stars today whos as astonishingly handsome as hes strikingly well built. Whos as disarmingly self effacing as he is genuinely nice and forthright. John Abraham.

    We bumped into John at the success party of Taxi No 9211 in Mumbai, and once again, the genial hearththrob was all courtesy, and spoke with at length about working with Nana, Akshay, his future films, and what Success means to him, and why hes decided to get much much more choosy about the films he will take up in future.

    Excerpts from the conversation.

    Congrats on the success of Taxi No 9211. What does success mean to you?

    Every successful film does matter to me. I think it helps me do better work, and to get better work in the Industry.

    Did you really have problems working with Akshay Kumar in Garam Masala?

    No! Akshay helped me a lot, contrary to media reports (smiles). I had a great time, a great time really. It was a superhit movie, and Ive heard that that counts at the end of the day!

    And what was it like, working with Nana Patekar in Taxi No 9211?

    Nanas a superb guy very simple. Hes a very very emotional person, and a very good human being. And very helpful too. For instance, in the song Meter Down, he helped me with a lot of steps of mine, and thats very hard to believe (smiles).

    After Taxi, which are the films you are looking forward to?

    Well, I have Kabul Express from Yashraj its about two journalists who go to Afghanistan to get an interview with the Talibani. Arshad Warsi plays the other journalist, and let me tell you, hes done a fabulous job!

    What was it like, shooting in Afghanistan?

    Oh, it was superb. Afghani people are superb, very good human beings. It was great shooting there. But yes, I did have to get hospitalized due to Typhoid!

    And apart from Kabul Express?

    Some of the other movies I have are Salaam-e-Ishq , Babul, and a movie with Shriram Raghavan called Happy Birthday. And one with Anurag Kashyap. As you know, Babul is a family drama being directed by Ravi Chopra. Its got Salman Khan, Rani Mukherji, Amitabh Bachchan, Hema Malini and me. I play Ranis friend in the movie her lover.

    Ok, one last question for now. After this current lot of films, what next?

    Oh, after I finish this current lot of films, Im doing very few. Because I want to go biking. I want to ride a bike and see the world!
