John Abraham “Life is more than biceps, abs and a famous butt”


Coming back in action after three months and that too with the good looking and macho man of Bollywood JOHN ABRAHAM. He is famous for his comic timing, good looks, fabulous physique and most famous butt…but above all these the most important and significance is his easy going and humble nature….he is sweet heart. calling him sweet heart won’t be wrong because he is really sweet at heart.

March 2015 is the 101st celebratory issue of Men’s Health (India) and actor JOHN ABRAM graces the cover. JOHN bares his heart to Men’s Health in this latest special edition.

“Life is more than biceps, abs and a famous butt,” says actor John Abraham in his most personal story ever. For the first time in the Indian magazine industry, the entire nine-page interview has been written by the actor himself. Offering a sneak peek into the most private recesses of his life, John speaks of his metamorphic experiences, inspiration, motivation, fitness regime and workouts.

The actor narrates anecdotal tales from his life and advises his fans and the readers of the magazine on how to live their own. “It was 20 years ago when I saw Rocky IV. I was a scrawny, gangly and pimply youth. I was so mesmerized by Sylvester Stallone, that I wanted to be him. When the film got over, I ran out and had 12 bananas straight off the cart on the road to get strong and big,” writes John.

In another part of the story, John dispenses heavy duty advice. “Don’t get influenced by an actor’s body, be inspired by his lifestyle,” he says. “Let a John Abraham body be your catalyst. But remain the hero of your own story.”

Another story he tells is of a time when he was already a Bollywood star. “In 2005, after I had broken my ankle in a bike accident, I went onto Google and searched for the “Best Trainer In The World”. The name Google threw back at me was American fitness expert Mike Ryan. I traced Mike to a gym in LA and told him I wanted to train with him. He said he’d charge me $100 an hour, and I agreed. But he didn’t let me into the gym for a week after that. Instead, he set goals for me to accomplish in the car park before I was even given entry.”

Jamal Shaikh, Editorial Director of Men’s Health, says: “John Abraham writing out his own interview makes this story so personal in nature, it is a treat for his fans and others alike. In times of PR-generated quotes, this is the closest you’ll get to the personal thoughts of a Bollywood star. We’re proud to have him on our 101st cover, and this story is a special one indeed.”
