After VICKY DONOR, producer John Abraham is now all geared up with MADRAS CAFE. Apart from producing he will also be seen playing a pivotal role in this espionage thriller, which is directed by VICKY DONOR's Shoojit Sircar.

Says John, ''Shoojit Sircar has guided me through this entire film. From how intelligence agents are, to how military people work, to how they sit and speak. I have followed Shoojit Sircar blindly in this film. He only wanted subtle performances and not over the top heroism. That's exactly what I've given in this film.''

On the constant criticism that he gets, the 40-year-old actor says, ''I've been written off every year. My obituary is signed every year. I was written off after SAAT KHOON MAAF, JHOOTHA HI SAHI, AASHAYEIN. I was written off after my first film JISM. It's nice to be written off because you come back stronger. But I don't take it negatively. There is no anger in me. I don't think 'I was written off and now I'll show them'. I put my head down, I do my work and I try and I try and do something better.''

The actor is all praise for Akshay Kumar and believes that he has benefited a lot from him.

''I've learnt a lot watching Akshay Kumar. I've done GARAM MASALA, DESI BOYZ, HOUSEFULL and HOUSEFULL 2 with him. He's really very funny. I just enjoy watching actors like Akshay. He's very good in his art. You really feel happy when you're around him. Sometimes you may even break into a giggle if he's sitting in front of you. He's got that aura about him.''

Also starring Nargis Fakhri, MADRAS CAFE is all set for a August 23rd release.
