John Abraham says box office numbers do not matter to him as an actor, but as a producer of a film he does get concerned. “I have always maintained that for me, numbers don’t really matter. They are not an implication for me, personally. As a producer, yes, we look at numbers. But for John Abraham as a person, the numbers don’t matter. For me, it’s the audience’s appreciation,” John told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
Currently enjoying the success of his latest film Dishoom, he says people’s appreciation of his films makes him happy. The 43-year-old actor says he neither gets euphoric after a film’s success nor depressed after a movie’s failure.
John is now gearing up for his next release Force 2, which also stars Sonakshi Sinha and Tahir Raj Bhasin. He says the film will have real action. Force 2 has got very different action. It has very real action… The scale of action is one notch higher than what you have already seen as we have upped the action quotient,” he said.
Actor John Abraham, who started out as a model before venturing into the Hindi film industry in 2003 with Jism and now even produces movies, says his struggles in showbiz have become harder with time as he has become tougher on himself.

Every newcomer, especially those with no backing of a film family, faces hardships in the competitive industry. Was it the same for John when he forayed into filmdom? “I still face struggle. Even today, after Dishoom, I struggle, but the struggle is of different kind. The struggles are getting harder today because I am getting tougher on myself. The struggle is about being fitter, stronger and faster,” John told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
“The struggle is about finding better scripts… It’s about reducing the probability of failure, so the struggle is of a different kind. I really did not find that (entry into filmdom) much of a struggle,” added the 43-year-old, who, however, found being the best in the modelling industry a tough nut to crack.
