Essaying the role of a tough narcotics officer who ensures justice is served, in Vipul Shah’s Force, John Abraham is soon going to be synonymous with the tag of 'Action Abraham'.

Audiences are in for a treat as John gets into the genre of out-and–out action films, something he feels he is well suited for.

"I feel there is a space vacant for a new action hero," says John. "Younger heroes are more into romcoms, seniors are more into comedies and other stuff. I want to occupy the space of the action hero. I want to be known as the Last Action Hero of Bollywood."

After sweat it out to make Force - even performing his own stunts - John is confident that audiences are going to be introduced to some never-seen-before action.

"Salman Khan and Ajay Devgn have been doing action, but when you see Force you will know what action I am talking about," says John. "It is real action, simply amazing. Action director Allan Amin says he has not shot this kind of action in the 27 years of his career."

With a body like John's, action comes naturally to him. 

"My body is my religion, the gym is my temple, I come here to pray. The only place where I get sanctity is in my gym," says John. "I appreciate actors who have fit bodies. I don't look at it as competition, we complement each other. It will be great to see more actors with good bodies. After all, it is a visual medium."
