'Important to do all kinds of cinema'

Actor's journey

Actor John Abraham feels that trying his hands at different aspects of films is what keeps him going. “It is important to do all kinds of cinema and I try and attempt all possible kinds. I have tried to push the envelope by always doing something different in whatever I bring to the screen — whether never seen before action in Rocky Handsome, or comedy like Dostana or tragedy like Madras Cafe,” says Abraham, who’s latest release Rocky Handsome has reportedly collected Rs 7.06 crore at the Box Office.

The star who has acted in action movies like Race 2 and Shootout at Wadala, feels that the experience of watching action movies in theatres needs to be enhanced for the audience to have a “wholesome experience”.

“I have travelled the world and when it comes to cinema experience, say in comparison to London or New York, in India, it is very special. The audience here is really pampered. With new technology coming up more often, it offers a wholesome experience for moviegoers,” he avers at the launch of PVR Superplex (which comprises international formats including the first IMAX in North India, 4 DX, Atmos, Gold Class and Playhouse) at Logix City Center, Noida.

Meanwhile, the 43-year-old who is currently shooting for Force 2 with Sonakshi Sinha, is happy with the response to his latest release. “The response has been fantastic, and I believe everyone has something to take from it. We have worked very hard on the action and it has turned out superb,” says Abraham, appreciating his co-star Shruti Haasan and director Nishikant Kamat, who also plays the antagonist in the film.
