Throwing success bashes for films has been quite the trend in Bollywood, but actor John Abraham, whose latest release, Madras Cafe, has been getting rave reviews, is against the idea.

The 40-year-old actor-producer says he has never been fond of parties. Rarely spotted at public events, except those involving movie promotions, he would rather stay at home or go for bike rides late in the night. Abraham clearly states that he will not celebrate his films with a success bash.

“As a policy, I don’t host parties. I don’t believe in having a success bash for my films. And seriously, when was the last time I attended any party? I rarely ever step out for such affairs. It’s not my thing.”

The actor goes on to add, “For me, throwing a success bash is as embarrassing as dancing at weddings. That’s what I feel, and that’s why I don’t wish to do it.” On another note, Abraham has been trying to get a tax-free status for the film, given its political relevance and box office performance.

Next up, he will start shooting for his production and director Nishikant Kamat’s next, which is a remake of the 2010 South Korean film, The Man From Nowhere.
