Mumbai: John Abraham says that he never said no to experimenting when it came to picking roles: an alcoholic lawyer in `Jism`, a thief in `Dhoom`, a journalist in `Kabul Express`, a photographer in `Dostana`, a singer in `Saat Khoon Maaf`. But now the phase is over.

"I am not dependent on any films. I try to experiment with roles, like I did in `Kabul Express`, `Jhootha Hee Sahi` and others. `Force` is my first commercial masala movie, hope it does well. It is very interesting film," John said here.

"People used to tell me to do commercial films but I like experimenting and so I continued with it. All new directors come to me as they know I will take up risk. I know experiments are more prone to failure at times. `Force` is not an experiment. With `Force`, the experimentation phase is over."

`Force` is a remake of the Tamil film `Khaka Khaka`. It is directed by Nishikant Kamath and stars John and Genelia D`Souza.

"`Force` will be an entertaining film. It has every element, be it comedy, action, romance, drama. I feel comedy is the safest bet. These days action films are doing well. I hope my film does a decent business. I hope the film gets appreciated," John said.

About the co-star Genelia, he said, "She is a chirpy and bubbly person. This is the first film where she would look sensuous and beautiful."

`Force` is set to release on September 30. After `Force`, John would be seen in a comic flick with Akshay Kumar in `Desi Boyz` and `Housefull 2`, and in `Race 2` with Saif. Also in the pipeline are `Shootout at Wadala` and `I, Me Aur Main`.

On his relationship status, John said, "I would like to say that I am single. I am not married...I am happy."

John was in a relationship with actress Bipasha Basu since 2002, they officially broke up this year.
