Mumbai, Jan 19 (IANS) Abbas Burmawalla of the famous director duo Abbas-Mustan says they make lovable negative characters.

"The negative characters in our films are very lovable. It's not like the character is negative and so people will start hating them," Abbas said here Friday at a press conference of the film "Race 2".

"In our films, people like negative character and we are sure that people will like John (Abraham) in this film ('Race 2'). Not only John, all the six characters are in grey shades, and we hope people will love them all," he added.

Some memorable performances of actors in negative roles in their films include Shah Rukh Khan in "Baazigar", Akshay Kumar in "Ajnabee" and Priyanka Chopra in "Aitraaz".

While both Priyanka and Akshay won the Filmfare award for best actor in a negative role for their performances, Shah Rukh was named best actor.

"Race 2" is a sequel to Abbas-Mustan's 2008 hit "Race", which features Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Ameesha Patel, Deepika Padukone and Jacqueline Fernandez, apart from John. It is slated to release Jan 25.
