"I think sexy is not just about your being as in the way you look, sexy is also about the way you live your life...You do something good in life, that makes you look sexier," John told media.

The 'Dostana' star says it feels "nice to be appreciated and it's nice to be voted as the sexiest actor".  

In the upcoming actioner 'Dishoom', directed by Rohit Dhawan, John will be seen essaying a police officer named Kabir.

He says the alphabet 'D' and the name Kabir have both "worked" for him.

"The alphabet 'D' definitely has been coincidental in my life with 'Dhoom', 'Dostana' and 'Dishoom'... In these three films, my name is Kabir and I think somewhere down the line - there has been a Kabir attached to something that has worked for me... So I rate 'D' and Kabir highly," John said.

John, who is also a film producer, believes a movie is "successful only if it is good and it's not successful if it doesn't connect with the audience."

Having mostly featured in actioners like 'Dhoom', 'Kaal', 'Force', 'Race 2', 'Shootout at Wadala' and 'Rocky Handsome', one wonders why John picks movies in the genre.

Talking about it, he said: "Action is my favourite genre and I really enjoy it. Though I love comedy as well... So for me, an ideal genre would be action-comedy film." "I think 'Dishoom' has got the action in it with me (my character), it's got the comedy in it with Varun (Varun Dhawan's character) and me... I think it's a very special film on that front," he added.

'Dishoom' is slated for release on July 29.
