John Abraham comes with the aura of a fit and handsome personality on-screen, the one whom girls just can't stop drooling over, especially after he acted in FORCE! Well, guess what inspired that physique? None other than the king of action – Sylvester Stallone!
What's more? John, who will soon be seen in ROCKY HANDSOME, says the movie is inspired by Sylvester's ROCKY series.
John confirmed the same. He said, "Sylvester Stallone is the reason I got into films. For me, just him watching ROCKY HANDSOME would be validation enough that I exist in this industry because of him".
It is in fact being said that John has watched the entire Rocky IV over 100 times and film was truly a catalyst in getting him to be an actor.
“I still remember being awestruck when I watched Rocky IV on the big screen for the first time. I wanted to be like him, the underdog with a tough exterior and a soft heart," added John.
ROCKY HANDSOME is impressive in every bit of the movie we have seen. But apart from ROCKY, Sylvester Stallone is also known for his RAMBO series.
Earlier this year, Siddharth Anand seems to have announced that work on the movie will start, but it also looks like Hrithik Roshan might play the lead.
However, we would root for John Abraham, especially knowing that he's such a huge fan of Sylvester Stallone (no offence, Hrithik) and we think he can do full justice to the role of a commando.
