'My focus has been on making good films'

After his debut production venture ‘Vicky Donor’ collected three National Awards, actor John Abraham says he is feeling the pressure to churn out good films under his banner.  

The 40-year-old is currently working on his second home production ‘Madras Cafe’, a political thriller directed by Shoojit Sircar of ‘Vicky Donor’ fame. 

“We are just one film old and there is a lot of pressure, especially after wining the National Award. Professionally it was the highest point in my career and I am very happy that as a producer, I am able to make my kind of cinema,” he says. “My focus has always been on making good films and it will remain that way. I am very proud of ‘Madras Cafe’ and hope people will appreciate it,” adds John. Other projects under his home banner are Jaffna, Kalaghoda and Hamara Bajaj.

Meanwhile, John is happy with the success of his recently released ‘Shootout at Wadala’, which he says was an answer back to people who doubted his acting skills.

“I think ‘Shootout at Wadala’ has put to rest any issues that anyone had with my performances. Hopefully, ‘Madras Cafe’ will raise the bar beyond that. 

Performances that I have done have been very different and they are always going to be different. I am happy people have appreciated it finally,” he added.
