For John Abraham, script comes first

In a star-driven industry, it comes as a surprise when an actor acknowledges the importance of a script

The Desi Boyz actor seems to be growing and though most of his films are masala entertainers, he apparently wants to be a part of films which have more substance.  John has been a part of two such films – Deepa Mehta’s Water and Anurag Kashyap’s No Smoking – but both these films didn’t do well at the BO. In a recent interview, he said, “By doing five somersaults in the air, I am not offering anything new. To make an action film look good, you must have a great script.” While we like to hear such profound thoughts from a guy who was seen throwing a bike to promote his film, it would be great if he actually puts his money where his mouth is.
