John Abraham: “I would like to do films that involve and encourage the youth”

JohnAbraham the birthday boy who turns 42 today has applauded the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s clarion call asking the youth of the nation to shun drugs in his radio address 'Mann Ki Baat'.

Speaking his heart out John Abraham said that though he is not interested in politics but he is happy with the Prime Minister Narendra Modi as he is taking measures for economic development. "I've met the Prime Minister Narendra Modi personally on a number of occasions. He wants economic progress in the country and that's all I am concerned about,” he quipped.


JohnAbraham is known for his concern for the youth of the nation. Praising PM Modi for taking up the important issue of drug menace among the youth, John Abraham said, "When the Prime Minister of the country ask the youth not to have drugs, it creates a huge impact and there will be no better example to persuade youth to quit drugs.”

JohnAbraham is health conscious and follows strict discipline in his daily life. He says, “I sleep by 9.30 -10 pm and wake up by 4.30 a.m. because morning is the best time to time of our muscles.”


 He says, “Youth are the back bone of the nation and as a film celebrity it is my duty to set right standards. That’s the reason I try to do movies that send good messages to the youth like FORCE, where I played a narcotics bureau officer and NO SMOKING, where I play a self-obsessed, narcissist chain smoker who agrees to kick his habit to save his marriage and visits a rehabilitation centre.”

He adds, “Likewise as a producer I concentrate on topics that reach the youth like VICKY DONOR, a film with a subject as strong as sperm donation. My next film as a producer, is 1911, a film on football when Mohun Bagan was initiated. The story is about their match against an English team.”

“In my capacity as a producer I would like to do films that involve and encourage the youth, be it the story of a sperm donor, be it sports,” he concludes.

Shah Rukh Khan’s New Heroine is Pakistani Actress

After Pakistani beauty, Humaima Malick made her debut opposite Emraan Hashmi in RAJA NATWARLAL, yet another Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, renowned for her TV series HUMSAFAR will be making her debut in Bollywood opposite none other but the Badshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan in his forthcoming movie RAEES.

According to film's director Rahul Dholakia and producers, Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, Mahira Khan is ideal for the role. She is a brilliant actress hence she has been selected because she won’t be playing the run of the mill typical Bollywood heroine, who has few dance and songs sequences and body display instead she plays Shah Rukh Khan’s wife, a complex role. Since SRK plays an underworld don hence the movie portrays the traumas and pathos a wife has to undergo in his exile.

Ever since Mahira Khan, created waves with her TV serial HUMSAFAR, Bollywood has been keen to rope her but she has been keeping a distance. The actress is known for portraying sensitive, daring and women centric roles like in the acclaimed Pakistani film BOL, where she revolts against religious extremism and female emancipation in Pakistan.

In an interview the beautiful hazel eyes actress said, “I would like to do versatile roles and not stereotyped ones. There is a big ‘no-no’ to stereotype roles. After reading the script if I think I can do this kind of a role, I would never say no to it, instead would end up doing it.” 

 Regarding the rumors of her being cast opposite Bollywood hunk Ranveer Singh, briefing the media, she had candidly confessed, “I’ve no clue who’s gave out false information regarding me signing Bollywood films.”

However during the press meet she did gave clues that she had been approached by some filmmakers from Bollywood and had been offered a role opposite a ‘reputed’ Bollywoood star.

Now the cat is out of the bag and the name of the ‘reputed’ Bollywoood star REVEALED!
