DOSTANA is a success and John Abraham is obviously feeling great, especially due to the fact that he saw a release to his name a year after he was last seen on the big screen in DHAN DHANA DHAN GOAL.
'I am very happy with the success of DOSTANA. Of course, it is the second in row but I know that GOAL was mainly an average successful film. Somehow producers too never advertised its success much due to which the right perception was not created. But that's ok, it happens. I have moved on', smiles John who is looking at an eventful 2009 ahead.
'Whatever the critics may have had to say in the past, the fact is that I have faith in my audience. That's because it understands what I stand for; I am someone who does fun films. Some of them may be experimental, different, but my aim is to always entertain them', says John emotionally, 'Ultimately audience too moves on to the next film and this is what happened with me too even after the BAABUL and SALAAM E ISHQ.'
NO SMOKING would be difficult to forget though, isn't it?
'I was really hoping that NO SMOKING was much more commercial than it was. Hope the film was released in a right way. The general feedback that I continue to get is that the last 15 minutes of the film went haywire otherwise Anurag (Kashyap) had got it just right. Ultimately I want to give credit to him; he at least broke all norms and was willing to take a different route', defends John.
