New Delhi: Actor John Abraham said his new film Rocky Handsome is different from other action films.

"The film has world class action. It's not like any other action film. The stunts in it are lyrical as you need to maintain a certain posture when you are fighting with knives. The chances of hurting yourself increase if you don't maintain a certain posture. I trained 14 hours a day for one month," John told reporters.

John, 43, plays Kabir Ahlawat, who shares a warm bond with a seven-year-old girl.(Also Read: Why John Abraham's 'Favourite Genre' is Action)

When John was asked about his experience of filming Rocky Handsome with child artiste Diya Chalwad, he said, "She was very special. She was always on time on sets. She was just seven-years-old but was mature. She is a gymnast and after the shoot she used to show me gymnastics."

Rocky Handsome will clash with Hollywood's much-touted movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But John is unfazed by the box office battle.

"You have to decide what you want to see? You want to see a superhero or a real hero? Apart from action, Rocky Handsome has emotion and soul too. Being a producer, I will not market a bad film," said John.

Rocky Handsome also marks the acting debut of its director Nishikant Kamat, who plays the main antagonist.

The film, which also stars Shruti Haasan, will release on March 25.
