I am restructuring my career: John Abraham

I am restructuring my career: John Abraham

The model-turned-actor who has not been seen on the silver screen since the early 2009 release 'New York', said that he had "taken off" to restructure his proffesional life.

"I had taken off because I want to do qualitative work. I was restructuring my professional life, how I could give better films to audiences. By restructuring, I am trying to select right scripts, right directors and right producers, charting out professional life to give best and better than the audience expected. It is like a game of Chess," John told PTI here in an interview.

"The best part of my professional life starts now. I say so because I believe in the projects that I am doing and will be liked by the audiences," the actor said.
John's upcoming releases include 'Aashayein', 'Hook Ya Crook', Dostana 2', Abbas Tyrewala's unititled film and other solo films.

John who is an animal rights enthusiast and is closely associated with the NGO People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) will be producing a film themed on tigers with the prominent environmentalist and filmmaker Mike Pandey.
"I am co-producing it and am also the narrator," he said.

John made his debut with the erotic thriller 'Jism' in 2003 opposite Bipasha Basu, which earned him a Filmfare Best Debut Actor nomination.
Following a couple of flop films like 'Saaya', 'Lakeer-Forbidden Lines', 'Zinda' and 'Salaam-e-Ishq', success followed after his first commercial hit, 'Dhoom' in 2004.

"Dhoom gave me the right platform, where my acting skills got recognition. I think after the two back-to-back successes like 'Dostana' and 'New York' that I had, the audience that come to watch my films have certain expectations from me now," John said.
"I don't want to upset them; I want to give better and best to audiences. So it is important for me to position myself for the audiences as per the likes, but at the same time I am trying to give or show them something different in my every film," the 37-year-old actor said.

"It is essential to zero-in on films you want to do, which you believe will be liked by audiences," he added.
