His original name is Farhan, but he was called John as per his father's wish. However John Abraham is a Christian. His parents eloped because of their religious differences; John Abraham's birth, however, mended his parents' strained relationship with their respective parents. Abraham has one younger brother, Alan.

In 2003, Abraham entered Bollywood with the controversial and successful movie Jism.It was during the filming of this when John and Bipasha have been seeing each other and continued to remain strong despite their ' breakup rumours.' Although Bipasha was more famous and successful during the shooting of Jism , he became the most sought after actor in no time. With some brilliant performances in movies like Jism, Kaal, Water, Zinda and Garam Masala, he has proved his mettle as an actor. Not only is he a great actor, but this model turned actor is a super hottie in his own right. He has a great sense of dressing and wears clothing appropriate to the occasion unlike his other male counterparts. He is the only actor in the Indian film industry who has a signature clothing line in his name from Wrangler Jeans. This bollywood hottie has not quit modeling. He has appeared in advertisements for Wrangler, Peta, Yamaha and All Clear. He is an animal lover and makes regular visits to the organisation Peta.
