John Abraham is not only one of the hottest actors in Bollywood but according to a huge poster put up in Juhu he is also a liar. Well, before you get any ideas let us tell you that this poster has been put up by the makers of Jhootha Hi Sahi and is one of the biggest posters ever put up. In fact, it is a tall as a four story building.
However, instead of a liar John can now be called a daredevil because the actor promised that he was going to climb up the hoarding and tear it down to reveal the actual poster of Jhootha Hi Sahi. All movies talk about unveiling the first look, but this was an unveiling in the truest sense.
Yesterday the actor set out to do what he had promised. He was very thrilled at the chance of doing such an adventurous stunt and suggested that he should do the unveiling without any safety gear. However, the producers Saregama, Madhu Mantena and director Abbas Tyrewala refused to take such a big risk and were very firm on John doing the jump with all the safety precautions in place.
But because of the safety gear during the climb, John looked a little awkward. Once John climbed the billboard, he unveiled the first look of Jhootha Hi Sahi in the literal sense.
But the surprises didn’t end there; the first look of Jhootha Hi Sahi was such that no one could recognize John. His look in the film is very different. So to show that it was really him in the picture and not another photoshopped miracle, John actually donned his look from the film. By wearing a shirt with glasses.
Says John Abraham, “The unveiling of the film was a thrilling experience, different from the usual unveilings I’ve done in the past.” Commenting on his look in the film, “My look in the film is very different and not something anyone has seen me in before. Jhootha Hi Sahi is an amazing film and I’m very excited about it. Abbas Tyrewala has done an awesome job.”
The day ended with soft spoken, Abbas Tyrewala, the director of the film, wishing the crowds “Ramzan Mubarak”.
