An MBA- turned- model- actor- producer, John Abraham has judiciously used his skills to emerge a winner in all his ventures. A former media planner and Gladrags Manhunt winner, he appeared in several music videos before he debuted as an actor in Jism. Though he was noticed for his good looks, his next outings Paap, Saaya etc, did nothing for his career till Dhoom came his way. The negative role in the action film turned the tide and he went on to do Kaal, Garam Masala, both box- office success and experimental films like Water and Kabul Express that won critical acclaim. Though Dostana with Abhishek Bachchan proved to be a smash hit, his subsequent releases got a lukewarm response. John got back into the reckoning with Force and went on to give back- to- back hits with Desi Boyz and Housefull 2. Interestingly, the first film he decided to produce under his banner was the experimental Vicky Donor starring newcomers Ayushmann Khurrana and Yami Gautam. The film won both critical acclaim and commercial success. His next, Madras Cafe based in Sri Lanka saw him playing the lead role and did well. His upcoming films include Welcome Back and Rocky Handsome. He is also producing and acting in a film based on the wrestler Gama. Best way to blend his love for sports and films, right?
