“With a lot of humility and integrity I accept these compliments that are coming my way graciously, but I know that these hold true only till your next film. Success and failure are both temporary and I understand that very well. Force will always be a film that I will be proud of when I look back at all my films,” he smiles.
While his professional life is being talked about, his personal life too has been in the spotlight after his break-up with actor Bipasha Basu. He has been linked to a banker, a lawyer and the latest one being actor Deepika Padukone. The two met on the sets of their upcoming film and since then rumor mills have been abuzz with stories about the twosome.
However, John is unperturbed.”Deepika is a lovely girl. She is simple, transparent and very hardworking. I know that our pairing is fresh and I will not deny that a lot is going to be said about us but all that is absolutely untrue.”
He has vehemently denied the rumors of a link up with Deepika but what about reports that suggest he will team up with Vidya Balan in Sanjay Gupta’s next? It can be recalled that there were strong rumours that suggested that there is more to John and Vidya’s friendship on the sets of Salaam-E-Ishq.
“I am very excited if she comes on board. I do not get into the casting process but Sanjay did tell me that he had Vidya in mind. I am open to working with her. In fact so much was written about us but I never had any problems with her. She is a sweet girl,” says John. So after Vidya who is next on John’s wish list and pat comes the reply. “Sonakshi Sinha. I am really looking forward to working with her.”
