"I am very close to Karan Johar and he is someone I talk to," said Abraham. "His problem is that he is the agony aunt for the entire industry. With me, he does not have to listen to the woes and the politics that goes on in the industry as he knows that I am fiercely detached from that space.

"For me, I look at someone from the way the person takes care of his parents, and I love the way Karan takes care of his mother.

"Uday [Chopra], Hrithik [Roshan] and I are classmates from school. I am fiercely protective about Hrithik. We never talk about work and always only talk about school friends. He is hands down more good-looking than me.

"I have seen him graduate from what he was, and it makes me immensely happy to see how he has worked on his body and diction."

Abraham continued: "I am also possessive about Abhishek [Bachchan], who was also in my school. We were in awe of Mr [Amitabh] Bachchan, when he used to come to our school. I remember once he came wearing a kurta and a white shawl, and we were looking as if someone had come from another planet."

The 40-year-old star said that he is detached from industry goings-on, and regards himself as conservative but independent in his views.

"I am also conservative in my views, as in I believe in looking after your family and parents. I have a mind of a 50-year-old, but a body of a 24-year-old," he said.

"I am fiercely independent in my views and can be misunderstood. For instance, I will prefer to ride my motorcycle at night instead of going to a party. I like to sleep at 10.30 at night and wake up at 4.30 in the morning, so even though I am fiercely proud of being a part of the film industry, I operate in a different space."

Abraham stars as Saif Ali Khan's adversary in the forthcoming Race 2. Watch a trailer for the movie below:
