After the success of Vicky Donor and Housefull 2, actor turned producer, John Abraham (above) says he’s in a “happy state” at this point in his life.

The 39-year-old  revealed that it was Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone’s beefy look in action flick, Rocky IV, that pushed him to indulge in regular workouts to build the sculpted, enviable body, that he is now know for. John, who was recently in the Capital to launch Philips Bodygroom, also spoke about playing gangster Manya Surve in his upcoming film, Shootout at Wadala, his future projects, Vidya Balan and more.

On playing Surve
It is going to be a career defining film for me...a  complete game changer. When people will see the film they will forget John and only remember Manya.
It’s going to shock people

On Vidya
She is an exceptional actor. Vidya has proved that a woman can carry an entire film on her shoulders in this film industry which is primarily dominated by men

On future films
My upcoming productions include Hamara Bajaj, Kala Ghoda and Jaffna. I am also acting in Jaffna. Other acting projects include Race 2, Dostana 2, Shootout At Wadala and I, Me, aur Main

On life
I am in a happy space right now, both as an actor and producer. I want to be a hands-on producer and show the world that Indian cinema is meaningful and our films are more than just song and dance

On Rs.100 cr club
This Rs.100 crore club exists in our industry. But, we need to realise that the nature of film making is changing and so if today it’s Rs.100 crore..tomorrow it is going to be Rs.150 crore, and then Rs.200 crore club

On Delhi
I love coming to Delhi. And thanks to my upcoming films, I will be visiting the Capital more often and will be spending more time here. It is going to be a lot of fun for me
