Mumbai: He has been a part of films of various genres, but action remains actor-producer John Abraham's all-time favourite.

John, who has been saying that the stunts in his next film Rocky Handsome are of an altogether new level in Bollywood, said: "Be it little kids, boys or grown up men, we have all been fascinated by action throughout our lives.
