John Abraham has had a great 2018, to say the least with two of his films 'Satyamev Jayate' and 'Parmanu' doing well at the box office.

The 'Batla House' actor told in an interview to a daily that there are many actors these days who are obsessed with social media and being on a list. John feels that as an actor, one should only concern with showcasing his or her craft. He then questioned how much money do these celebs want to mint and why do they not own up to the poor content they put out to get this money. 

John went on to add that as an actor he has always worked hard for his place and once he gets accolades, he accepts it and moves on quietly. As if that weren't enough, the actor specifically said that he would never dance at a wedding, as it is demeaning according to him. One can say that this is a jibe on 'Zero' actor Shah Rukh Khan, who is known to do such stunts. Or maybe a plethora of celebs who shook a leg at some high profile weddings. Although he didn't call it wrong, he said it is something he would never partake in.

The 'Batla House' actor also had a lot to say on the obsession with social media. Speaking about the same, he said that fame online has no real credibility in the real world. He called it a crazy development as the virtual world is becoming more important than the real world. Well, this bold and honest take from the actor could really stir up the hornet's nest with many already postulating who are these actors that he is referring to. 

Coming to the professional front, the B-town hunk will be next seen in 'Romeo Akbar Walter' and in 'Batla House', which is gearing up for an Independence Day release.
