John Abraham promotes himself as a brand with his calendar


John Abraham is not leaving any stone unturned to market himself as a brand. John has decided to promote himself and plans to distribute a calendar containing pictures of himself. John himself has come up with this public relations strategy and plans to distribute the calendar to a select few in the industry, but will not sell the product. John says “I will send it to people whom I know and would like to reach out to at the beginning of the year. It’s a non-profit venture.”
The calendar has been shot by ace photographer Subi Samuel and will be distributed by John at the beginning of 2007. John has also previously endorsed his own brand of clothing and has also been seen as a brand ambassador for several commercial commodities. John further adds “I’ve been forging my own style of self-projection. The calendar is an idea that to my knowledge hasn’t been attempted by any other actor. It will contain images only of me.” John does not consider this act of his narcissistic but views it as a humble endeavor.
