Biography » other artists entretainers » john abraham


Born in Mumbai, India on 17th December 1972 John Abraham is one of the most successful male models in India. His dad is a Christian from Aluva, Kerala and his mother is from Iran. Being a Catholic his father added the name ‘Abraham’ to his son John as a mark of respect to the first patriarch and progenitor of the Hebrew people in the Bible.


That name gave him a noted stand when he entered the modeling field. His revolutionary looks, macho body, baby smiles and nice character made him the highest paid supermodel in India. Being a hot star in the modeling world, he made his film debut in 2003. Not like usual Bollywood heroes who debut in male oriented action subjects, he accepted the erotic emotional Jism (2003). Unfortunately the film didn’t do well, but his work was noticed widely. Later the same year came the paranormal Saaya (2003) and romantic Paap (2003); none of them did well at box-office.


His first blockbuster smash hit came in the year 2004 when he took the antihero role ‘Kabir’ in Dhoom (2004).
