Mumbai: John Abraham has found himself a ‘perfect’ role model in none other than the perfectionist Aamir Khan. According to the latest buzz, John has decided to follow Aamir’s footsteps, as far as the former’s career strategies are concerned.
Reports reveals that most of John’s friends and his longtime girlfriend Bipasha Basu think that he’s delivered his career’s best performance so far in Abbas Tyrewala`s upcoming flick ‘Call Me…Dil’ (previously titled ‘1-800-Love’).
Although the hunt for a suitable title for the film, with the word ‘Dil’ in it, is still on, the release date of the flick has been finalized. And guess what, John has decided to take charge of every aspect of the film - from its publicity stills and posters to promotional strategies to selection of the chain of theatres for its release.
Well, of course John’s trying to be another Aamir, but the actor has no qualms in admitting that he’s definitely inspired by Aamir.
“Aamir is truly inspiring in the way he conducts his career. And his success ratio is mindboggling. Who wouldn’t want to follow in his footsteps? I certainly do. And I’m trying. In my own humble way I’ve been repeatedly taking risks with my career. Like Aamir I don’t believe in staying in the comfort zone. As for awards, I think the endorsement that your performance gets from the audience provides more satisfaction for an actor than anything else,” says John.
