John Abraham, who turned 40 on Monday, is in a happy zone right now. He was a part of one of the biggest grossers of the year, Housefull 2 and also tasted success with his first production venture Vicky Donor. Come 2013, he will be seen in films like Race 2, Shootout At Wadala and Madras Café.

“I am excited about my space. Next year starts with Race 2. It’s a complete negative character and I love it. After that, I have a beautiful film called I Me Aur Main which every woman will love to watch and relate to. There is Shootout At Wadala which is my big one. Then there’s my baby, Madras Café, an intellgent political-thriller. These will keep up the Action Abraham tag alive,” shares the actor. So, is Dostana 2 also in the pipeline, we ask. “I think Karan (Johar) knows better. He’s in a better position to tell you,” he says.

The actor strongly believes that Force (2011) was a turning point in his career. “Force was a big game changer for me. Force made people realise that a John Abraham film can do well,” he says.

We all are aware of John’s passion for motorbikes. In fact he is kno''wn to have given some tips to his Race 2 co-star, Saif Ali Khan, about his bike. So can we expect a book on bikes in the near future? “I don’t know. May be I’ll write about myself, about the road I have travelled. But motorcycles are definitely going to be a part of it,” concludes the actor.
