Good decision. I hate it when "it" celebrities try to many things at once only to give such disappointing performance. I love him in WGM, but I don't know why he got awards for BOF. His performance was laughable and painful to watch at times. He had no chemistry with any of the women (horrible, unromantic, robotic kissing scenes) and he was just stiff all over, even his gestures were so forced from having no emotions to glaring eyes. Fans get a hold of yourselves and judge his performance objectively. It was excruciatingly unpleasant.

KHJ made a great decision to aim for longevity as an entertainer because another stiff/horrible acting performance will be detrimental to his career. Much like what Gigli did to J Lo's then-hot career.
