John Abraham: My films would try to make a statement

John Abraham is all excited about RACE 2 which brings him back into the action mode a la DHOOM. Just like his upcoming flick SHOOTOUT AT WADALA, this Abbas-Mustan directed affair too is a bound with quite a few dramatic confrontations with action ruling the roost.
'I guess the line between a hero and an anti-hero has almost diminished now. This is the reason why most of us actors are playing a grey or an out and out black character in the film. When you watch these two films, you would realise that everyone is so fabulous out there. Also, drama and action would bring in quite a few turning points as well,'' says John.
As for his career in general, the turning point came last year when he not just saw a huge commercial success in the form of HOUSEFULL 2 but also scored a boundary with VICKY DONOR.
No wonder, 2012 turned out to be a defining year for John by all means.
'Yes, it indeed was a turnaround year for sure. I wanted to marry commerce with content and now VICKY DONOR has set a benchmark. Even in future, my films would definitely try to make a statement,'' says John in a proud tone, 'It is not a boisterous statement though. I am going to live up to such huge expectations with my next production MADRAS CAFE, the shooting of which is currently on.'
We are tuned for sure John. While RACE 2 releases this Friday, SHOOTOUT AT WADALA hits the screens on 1st May.
