Abraham's Parsi name, given to him by his mother's family, is "Farhan" while his father, being a Marthomite Syrian Christian named him "John." He has a younger brother named Alan Abraham. He considers himself a spiritual person but does not follow any particular religion. Since he was brought up in Mumbai, he is closer to his mother's side, and thus knows very little of his father's language Malayalam but is fluent in Gujarati. In 2012, Abraham produced his first film Vicky Donor, which was a critical and commercial success, and earned him a National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment. He then established his own production house, John Abraham Entertainment. His second film as a producer was Madras Cafe, which garnered critical acclaim.
