I am against city tours, television events to promote films: John Abraham

Actor John Abraham has said he is against city tours, television events and ‘blowing kisses in malls’ to promote his films. Ultimately, the actor says, it’s only the content that makes a difference at the box office.

“Speaking in the capacity of a producer, when studios are attached to a film, there are certain commitments that one must fulfil. But I am totally against city tours and television events to promote a film”

“I will never stand around in a mall, throw T-shirts and blow kisses. Ultimately, it’s the product that counts, not how much you sell it” John added.

Talking about award functions in the industry, John said he doesn’t understand how actors don’t get bored at such ‘live shows’.

“With award functions, it’s a complete no-no for me. But to each his own. Award functions are live shows where actors get paid to perform. The same actors win all the awards every year. I don’t know how that actor doesn’t get bored. I am one actor who doesn’t get that chance.”

When asked about the impact of demonetisation on the business of his film ‘Force 2′, John said “To be honest, we have been very practical producers. We have worked out the numbers so that we are financially safe even before the film’s release. That’s one part of it. The other more important part of the film is the audiences’ acceptance. I bow my head and say in all humility to the audience we’ve made a sincere film”

Force 2 released in theatres today.

  • Those who have nothing to show or proud of will have this kinda shit and pseudo attitude. Where is he in bollywood ? he never was is and will be. Maan naman mein teri mehmaan😜 omg the most hilarious part is he talk abt awards. May be some day bollywood will recognize and bestow him with the worst actor ever that bollywood had ever seen.

  • Someone should advise this dude to concentrate on his marriage and raise children. He should quit acting and spare us the trauma.

  • In Pakistan nobody knows Ajay Devgn but we know John Abraham. Ajay should learn Action from Johnny Blaze Abraham!!! Faking India publics

  • I like his work…but everybody knows how good an actor he is.
    His ‘work’ referring his choices..he has produced n worked upon some amazing films like vicky donor n madras cafe.
    But regaring television show appearances i think he appeared on a couple of shows earlier…if um not mistaken he did appear in kapil sharma… Believing something neans sticking to it mr john.. Like shahrukh salman akshay n hrithik.. They believe in these city tours n tv promotions so they do it..if u dont u shdnt instead of the pressure from production houses.

  • @Slimani people like you make frequent visitors of Indicine to dearly write to you on how you are being perceived. To hell with Pakistan ,your entire generation cannot produce a gift art like Ajay Devgn if you doubt let’s punch it down freaking monster 👾!!

  • Silly man, it is the only way to beef up the box office of his films. He should give it a try because he is quite a hit with the girls but his aloof attitude will not get them to see his films.
