After Housefull 2 in 2012, actor John Abraham has begun his new year with yet another sequel Race 2, which hit the screens on Friday. He says being a part of a successful franchise has worked in his favour.

“Race was a successful film, which is why it also makes a big difference (in choosing Race 2). The Race franchise is so big that being a part of it always helps,” John said. “For example, Housefull 2! Irrespective of whatever people said, kids love it, people love it too and the film went on to earn Rs. 120 crores. It was fun. Akshay and I really get along very well, so in the film, it was like going back to my own home and having fun with my elder brother,” he added.
Asked if there was any kind of pressure since Race was already a successful film, John said, “The pressure was very less. And it is still less, because I have seen the film.”
