A while ago, John Abraham had given a statement, which pointed fingers at our leading senior actors. He said, “With the senior heroes getting too senior and the younger heroes still being boys, you need a man who can run through walls and break through doors.” This has not gone down well with Ajay Devgn and Salman Khan and to a certain extent, John’s close buddy Akshay Kumar as well who is still doing action-based roles, albeit merging them with reality.
“John has been doing whatever he said, but he has also ended up getting injured twice while trying out all these stunts. Fair enough, let him play action hero, but let him not come out with such statements. Ajay and Salman were informed by their team that John had made such a statement in one of his interviews. Agreed that all the three Khans, Ajay and Akshay are past 50, but John is also 46,” says a source not willing to be named.
