Bollywood has no stories to tell: John Abraham

5 years ago

New Delhi: John Abraham, who has been propagating off-beat and "sensible" films in a space full of masala entertainment, believes that Bollywood currently lacks "sensible" stories to tell.

 

"We lack stories. We have no stories to tell. We put five songs with five comedy scenes and say it’s done," John said in an interview.

 

That’s one reason why the 40-year-old is loving and enjoying every bit of his new role as a film producer. Thanks to it, he is being able to serve the audience with eclectic movies - the entertaining Vicky Donor and the engaging Madras Cafe. "I love the role of a producer because I make the kind of films which I want to make. I make sensible films. I think Vicky Donor and Madras Cafe are examples enough about the cinema which I want to propagate," he said.

 

John, who has been in the film industry for a decade, is all for a healthy mix of genres at the box office.

 

"While we keep making formula films, as a producer and an actor, I want to say let’s make sensible films which the audience will accept. I want to thank them for accepting a film like Madras Cafe," he said of his movie, which focusses on the Sri Lankan civil war.

 

In fact, now John himself is open to the idea of producing a masala film.

 

"I’d love to produce a big masala film, and I will make sure that you are genuinely entertained by it," he said. IANS
