Critical acclaim matters over commercial success: John Abraham

Critical acclaim matters over commercial success: John AbrahamMumbai, July 30 Actor-producer John Abaraham makes no bones about admitting that critical acclaim is more important to him than commercial success as he wants to produce “different” films which have a lasting shelf life.

John turned producer with “Vicky Donor”, which went on to taste box office success as well as acclaim with a National Award. His next movie “Madras Cafe” is ready for release.

“As a producer, I’m not interested in commercial success. What matters is to be critically acclaimed. ‘Vicky Donor’ was a different film and ‘Madras Cafe’ is very different from ‘Vicky Donor’. So, as a producer, I want to make different and credible films, which will live on your DVD shelf and should be worth it,” John told IANS.

The actor, who also stars in “Madras Cafe”, directed by Shoojit Sircar, says the movie is made in a basic budget, but it looks like an expensive film.

“This film is a political thriller. It is made in a basic budget, but it will look like a Rs.50 crore film,” he said.

John is at present busy promoting “Madras Cafe”, which also stars Nargis Fakhri. The movie releases Aug 23.
