I'm so angry about 26/11, I could beat up someone: John

Mumbai: A week after the terror attacks devastated the city, Mumbaikers were back doing what they do best — enjoying good things in life. That was the idea behind the food and wine show by lifestyle magazine Upper Crust and self-proclaimed foodie John Abraham came in full Mumbai spirit to inaugurate the show on Friday afternoon. "I've been born and brought up in Mumbai. I may be smiling and laughing now, but I'm so angry that I can beat up someone,” John said. Amidst all the criticism, John had a word of praise for the media coverage of the attacks. "This is the first time I’m saying this — the media has done a fabulous job. You guys were very good," he added. Talking about love for food, was John a foodie in his school days? "People used to recognise me as one. I used to take food from everyone's tiffin and eat it. I used to play a lot of football as a kid, after which I used to be very hungry. Most of classmates who never played any sport would never finish their food, so I used to eat their food,” John replied. After putting on lean muscle mass for his role in Dostana, he's had to slim down even more for his next. “I have a tendency to lose weight and I lost 16 kg for Aashayein because of the character I played in that movie. I had to do it scientifically. You can't just starve and lose weight. That was very tough,” John explained.
