My body is my religion: John Abraham

Actor John Abraham, who is famous for his strict fitness regime, says he wants to live and die with six pack abs.

The 39-year-old made heads turn when he wore yellow swimming trunks in a famous scene in 'Dostana' and John says there is nothing more important to him than his health.

"I am pretty much an agnostic tending to become an atheist so my only religion is my body.

 I think there is nothing more important than health and workout. I want to live with a six pack and die with a six pack.

"I credit Sanjay Dutt and Salman Khan for creating that awareness amongst the youth to go to the gym. To have a good body you need a completely disciplined lifestyle," said John, who was in the Capital to launch Philip's body-groomer.

The actor, who has been in the industry for over a decade now and has given hits like "Desi Boyz" and "Force", recently turned a producer with Ayushmann Khurrana "Vicky Donor", which was a critical and commercial success.

John says he is in a very happy space right now as an actor and producer and he wants to provide platform for new talent in the industry.

"When you are an actor you are just a means to an end and not the end in itself. So I decided to produce films and I wanted to be a hands on producer, most actors produce films which they only act in. I wanted to make sure that I make the films I believe in even if the cast is otherwise," he added.

John has three more films - "Jaffna", "Hamara Bajaj" and "Kala Ghoda" - in the pipeline.
