    Default John's jitters in the sky!

    John Abraham is a self-confessed stickler for time. He likes his movies to be on time as in on schedule and he likes to be punctual when
    hes attending an event.

    So when he had an event in Delhi recently, and his flight from Mumbai was delayed, he says he got the heebie-jeebies stuck up there in the air, knowing he was going to be late. I had a 6.55 pm flight from Mumbai, which took off at 8.30 pm and landed at Delhi at 10.55 pm, he says obviously, he was counting the minutes!

    And we were discussing on the flight this was like the Dubai flight, which takes four hours to reach India! It was the first time Ive felt that kind of pressure, because Im someone whos never late. For me to be stuck 27,000 feet above sea level and not know what to do was quite unnerving. The only thing I told my manager, who was sitting next to me, was, I wish there were parachutes here so we could skydive. Because that seemed like the only option, there was no other way of getting down in time!

    No wonder theres so much that John is doing, it must be essential for him to manage his time. Hes doing movies, hes a biker, he walks the ramp, and now, like many others in tinsel town, hes also turning producer! Thats why he has a new perspective on the producer-multiplex issue now. Im also a co-producer now and I understand the ins and outs of the issue. Im co-producing my upcoming films with Abbas Tyrewala, Nishikant Kamat and Devan Khote. I feel I understand the concerns of the producers. I think what Aamir and Shah Rukh have done is acknowledged them. And thats a good thing to bring in change. Im glad that they got together as producers rather than as actors and said that we need to get things right. I stand by the producers and the distributors. And whenever we actors are needed, well be there to support the entire film fraternity, he says.

    Mahis made me watch cricket

    John walked the ramp recently at the Kolkata Fashion Week, and it wasnt because hes been a model and has walked the ramp many times. He did it for good friend Mahi Indian cricket team captain MS Dhoni whos the brand ambassador of the Kolkata Fashion Week. I dont know whether I have time to go to South Africa (for the IPL) or not. But when his team came to Mumbai and they played against the Mohali IPL team last season, I went to watch. It was good fun. I dont watch much cricket, but with Mahi, Ive started, he says. And it was great fun walking the ramp. I was a model before I was an actor. So if anybody can walk the ramp, honestly, I think I can!

    Johns been busy with the shooting of Hook Ya Crook in Hyderabad. I was in Hyderabad for a month getting totally tanned! Ive gone so brown, yaar. Its pretty dry and hot there. We have about 15 days of the shoot left. The good part is that were ahead of schedule. And you know that a movie finishing on schedule rarely happens. But if people start coming on time, then itll happen quite often, says John.
