Even though actor-producer John Abraham personally likes doing films in different genres, he strongly believes audiences find him most suitable in the action space.

"Back home, I'm called 'action' Abraham. I love that phrase audiences have coined for me. The rom-com space didn't work for me. I worked really hard in 'Jhoota Hi Sahi', but it didn't work because audiences mostly perceive me in the action space," John told reporters Monday here.

"I also enjoy comedy and that's why I'm doing 'Welcome Back' and 'Dostana 2'. But, I'm also doing an action film with director Nishikanth of 'Force' again and it will be ten times more powerful than our last film. I try to do different cinema because we are commercial actors at the end of the day," he said.

John says he doesn't hesitate to take risks.

"I guess I'm the only actor who takes risk. I mean I do a 'Kabul Express' in Afghanistan or I do a 'Madras Cafe' or I do a 'No Smoking', which nobody understood, but I enjoy that space and if some needs to take risks then it might as well be John Abraham. I'm happy about it," he added.

He was speaking at the promotional event of "Madras Cafe", which is being dubbing in Tamil as well with same name. Both versions of the film are set to hit the screens on Aug 23.

In the upcoming film, he plays a RAW agent, who goes on a covert operation in Sri Lanka during the civil war.

The film, which is directed by Shoojit Sircar, also features Nargis Fakhri and Prosenjit Chaterjee in important roles.
