    17th December 2015

    One of B-Town's most handsome, dashing and promising actors John Abraham turns 43 as he celebrates his birthday today 17th December 2015.

    The macho hunk of Bollywood made his debut with the 2003 film 'Jism' opposite Bipasha Basu and instantly got noticed for his acting talent and the film went on to do pretty good business at the box office.

    Post his debut, John worked in several films like 'Dhoom', 'Garam Masala', 'Aashayein', 'No Smoking', 'Kabul Express', 'Zinda' and 'Water' and went on to further cement his reputation as one of the most versatile and promising actors in the industry.

    Besides the regular masala films, John has also went on to experiment quite a few times in his career and has worked in several strikingly different and offbeat cinema like 'Aashayein', 'Kabul Express', 'No Smoking', 'Zinda', 'Water' and 'Madras Cafe'.

    In 'Aashayein', he played the role of an angry and confused compulsive gambler who wishes to live the life he has been dreaming of. The film was critically acclaimed and John's performance was also lauded.

    In 'Kabul Express', he played the role of Suhel Khan, a TV journalist and director and was praised by the critics for his perfomance. The film too managed to receive a pretty decent response.

    In 'No Smoking' John played the role of 'K', a self obsessed, smart, narcissistic chain smoker who agrees to quit smoking for his wife. The film was a neo-noir psychological thriller and although it didn't garner much praise in India, it managed to get appreciation abroad for its unconventional and pretentious storyline which was considered much ahead of its time.

    In 'Zinda', John played the role of Rohit Chopra who saves the character of Bala from trouble. This was again a film which was strikingly different from his regular masala flicks. The film was averagely received by critics.

    In 'Water', he played the role of Narayan a young and charming upper-class follower of Mahatma Gandhi and of Gandhism. The film is set in 1938 and explores the lives of widows at an ashram in Varanasi, India. It was critically acclaimed upon release and went on to fetch several awards.

    In 'Madras Cafe' he played the role of Major Vikram Singh, an Indian army officer appointed by the Research and Analysis Wing to carry out operations in Jaffna. Besides acting in the film, John was also the producer. The film is based on true incidents of Indian intervention in the Sri Lankan civil war and assassination of former Indian prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. This time too John garnered critical acclaim for his performance and the film was praised as well.

    John has been nominated for award quite a few times and managed to win National Film Award for 'Vicky Donor', Star Screen Award for his role in 'Dostana', IIFA Award and Zee Cine Award for his role of the antagonist in 'Dhoom', Stardust Award for his work in 'Paap' and Bollywood Movie Award for his debut film 'Jism'.

    Having said so much, there is simply no doubt that the budding actor is still hungry for more fame and success in his already illustrious career and surely his career will grow by leaps and bounds in the coming years.
