Diners at one of Londons top restaurants, Chak 89, got the shock of their lives when they ran into Bollywood superstar John Abraham. The actor broke with the usual tradition of going to film launches in city centres by attending a specially organised event by KZ Entertainment, to promote his latest film Jhootha Hi Sahi, in the plush South London restaurant and banqueting hall.
After doing a specially arranged interview at the very exclusive event, the big-hearted actor took a break from the press and VIPs present to have pictures taken with his fans. Whilst one female fan cried tears of joy afterwards, another fan who had a picture taken with the muscle bound star, almost passed out after she met her idol. I can’t believe it! I went out for dinner and ended up meeting my all time favourite hero. He is the most gorgeous man in the world” said Faiza Ahmad.
Clearly proud of the London set romantic drama, John revealed that he was actually hesitant to play a geek in the film, but thinks he has made the right decision. When I was told that I have to shave, wear glasses and not go to the gym, I told my director Abbas that I am really worried because people know me for the physicality. After I saw Jhootha Hi Sahi, I just gave Abbas a hug and said thank you. I’ve seen the film and have no doubt people will love the look. I’m worried people will like it more than anything else.
Due for release on October 22, the film revolves around a geeky guy who gets caught up in a web of lies when he tries to impress a woman. When John was asked if he endorsed lying the actor said: To get your love, sometimes you have to lie a little. We call them white lies so no one gets hurt.
