Is John Abraham cashing in on his single status?
Out of the four films that the hunky actor has on his plate, three are in the genre of guy flicks with a high glam quotient
Latest news is that the John Abraham has signed a new film I, Me Aur Main, where he will be seen romancing, not one, not two but five sexy actors! Helmed by first time director Kapil Sharma, son of Indian Air Force test pilot and cosmonaut Rakesh Sharma, it’s slated to be an urban story. John’s women on screen will be played by his Desi Boyz co-star Chitrangda Singh (with whom he is rumoured to be getting along like a house on fire), Prachi Desai, the much older Zareena Wahab and two other girls. Looks like the film will exploit the actor’s sex appeal to the fullest! These kind of guy flicks (case in point: Dhoom and Dostana) have worked wonders for the hunky actor. Unfortunately, every time he has underplayed his dishy looks and attempted hardcore acting (Aashayein and No Smoking) he has been rejected, outright. But his dismal track record at the box office with films like Jhootha Hi Sahi and Saat Khoon Maaf and a broken heart seem to have made him a man on a mission. The good-looking actor seems to have put experimentation on the back burner at last and has decided to get back to upping his sex appeal. John has got into the beefy cop mode for Nishikant Kamat’s Force and will indulge in machismo in Rohit Dhawan’s Desi Boyz, Sajid Khan’s Housefull 2 and I, Me Aur Main. The actor seems to be making it quite clear that he is cashing in on his newly found single-hood. Welikes!
