Being written off when your contemporaries are doing pretty well can be pretty upsetting. You feel bogged down and lose faith, and you either tend to give up on your dreams or look for a quick fix to get past the situation. But just like every cloud has a silver lining, every time you are being written off, there's a probability of you coming back stronger. And John Abraham is proof of that. 

"It is nice to be written off, so that you can come back stronger with a vengeance!" John, whose career graph hasn't been quite the smooth one, told MidDay.

John was last seen in Dishoom and will be soon seen in Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran. And while the former didn't do wonders at the box office, John hasn't lost faith in himself. His failures only push him him work harder. 

"My obituary is written every year. (It seems) everyone has the right to have an opinion about my film. There has always been a phase in my career where, when one of my films works, the next two won't. But, I have survived for 15 years now," he said. Talk about conviction. 

And if there's one thing you can learn from John's conviction, it is to never say never. After all, failures are the pillars of success.
