Who says models can't act? And besides, when the model in question is as unapologetically handsome, sexy and out-and-out fabulous as John Abraham, who even cares?
John's journey in the field of entertainment began when he won the Gladrags Manhunt Contest in 1999. This was followed by a spate of modelling assignments and some appearances in music videos. By now, his star was already on the rise and finally when the 6'1", half-Malyali, half-Parsi superhunk made his entry into the film industry with 2003's 'Jism', every female in the country missed a heartbeat. Although the movie was only a moderate success, John did end up gaining a lot more than an acting career. It was where he met and started dating his lovely co-star Bipasha Basu. 'Jism' was followed by a series of average-grossing and flop films until he played the villainous Kabir in 2004's mega hit 'Dhoom'.
Over the years, John has appeared in a number of films and has become a talented actor. His down-to-earth personality and easy smile continue to make him the heartthrob of millions. And while stray rumours of alleged link-ups dog him from time to time, his commitment to his lady-love only adds to his appeal.
