A sports enthusiast, John Abraham is no stranger to experimenting with his weight. “Since
, I’ve been constantly putting on and losing weight for various roles,” he says.
For his upcoming film,
Jhootha Hi Sahi
, he lost 10 kgs. “I weighed 92 kgs before this film. Now, I’m 82 kgs. Director Abbas Tyrewala told me to get rid of my hunky look and become a geek.”
And, now that he’s gone geek — nerdy glasses et al — John’s having trouble going back. “It is completely different from the way I’ve always looked. But, it has gone down so well that I prefer to look like a geek instead of my usual self,” says the actor. “This film will take my performance to another level.”
The actor flashes a smile as soon as you mention his lady love, Bipasha Basu, but mention marriage and the smile disappears. “Marriage can wait as we have our careers to focus on,” says the 37-year-old.
Although he admits that there’s a problem between him and actor Salman Khan, he’s not sure what the cause is. “I have some problem with Salman for sure, but I don’t know what exactly it is. My parents have always taught me to do my work and push off. That’s why I have few friends in the industry. I don’t party, and I am not a part of any camp,” he says.
