Actor John Abraham is back once again to entertain the masses with director Rohit Dhawan's 'Dishoom'. The actor is presently busy promoting his films, putting in all his efforts. In a recent meet with the press, the actor shared some interesting things such as his fitness funda, his professional life and finally 'Dishoom'.  Here's what the actor says...

Dishoom is a blend of action, comedy, romance and thrill. So, how difficult was it for you to work for such a film?

I think I've done that in the past in Desi Boys, Housefull and Garam Masala. But yes, the beauty about 'Dishoom' is that it's not just an action film or a comedy film but it's a combination of all these put together very intelligently by my director.  Rohit is the reason why I've done 'Dishoom'. I think Rohit and I get along very well. We understand each other very well on camera too. He presents me very well.

If you were given a chance to do an action packed finite TV series, would you do it?

Why not? Of course! I mean '24' is unfortunately the only one standing still alone survivor in the space of all this. I think Anil sir and everybody has done a fantastic job. So, If I would be given an option I would probably look at it. At this point of time I am still a feature film hero. I still want to be seen on the big screen. That's one of the reasons why I don't host TV show and I've steered clear all of that. But, will I do it in the future, there's a good chance of it.

Have you ever been offered a show like 'Fear Factor' or a something like that?

Of course! It wouldn't be fair to mention the shows that were offered but yes I've been offered to host a lot of shows on television. So, sometimes I say I don't want to do it or sometimes I would do it for a massive price and then they run away. But if they don't then I am in trouble. But usually I don't  really entertain that kind of space at all.

You are always admired as a fitness icon in B-town. So what makes you keep so close to fitness.

I wasn't well two days back and I said I need to fight the fever and I went to the gym and I survived. There's no remorse or no feeling sorry as I'd say I've got a knee problem or a headache today. Have that affair with the gym, with your body. Love your body and there's nothing wrong in loving your body because that's the only thing which is going to standby. You have to take care of yourself. For me fitness is way of life not a phase of life. It cannot be a resolution for you, it has to be a religion for you. My only temple, church, mosque is my gym and my god is my body and I pray to it. People come for a photo in the gym, and I say I m working out. Then I say,do you go to the temple, the church, mosque? I say this is my temple, my church, my mosque and I am praying. After I finish my prayers, I'll come out. Then they understand, because the only thing everybody seems to understand is religion. For me, religion is just a moral guideline to tell you what's right and what's wrong. There's nothing you should use from religion beyond that. Simple!

You started off with films in a very chocolate boy character. So why did you give that up now?

No! I would love to do romance but romance for me should always have an edge.I am not saying 'Fifty shades of Grey' but I am saying it has to have that edge, so if it has an edge, it will always work with John Abraham. I cannot be normal, normal is boring.

Dishoom is slated to hit the theatres on 29th July, 2016.
