True to its character of book seller in upcoming film JHOOTHA HI SAHI, actor John Abraham in a promotional event recently gave away the copies of Mahatma Gandhi's 'My Experiments with Truth' at an upbeat bookshop in Mumbai, on the eve of Gandhi Jayanti.
When asked about John's character being a liar in JHOOTHA HI SAHI, John said, "Even though my character in the film lies, they are all white lies. But today is a good day not to lie, as it is Gandhi Jayanti." Further he added, "The only person, who managed never to tell lie is Mahatma Gandhi and this is absolutely special occasion for us and that's the reason we chose this day to pay him respect."
When asked John which ideology of Gandhiji he truly admires & believes in, to which the hunk, who generally believes in all the Gandhian philosophies, delightfully replied, "I firmly believe in Gandhiji's principle of non-violence. I am non-violent person by nature."
In fact John who has not read 'My Experiments with Truth' plans to read it soon, as a recommendation of his co-star Raghu Ram.
Others who were present at the event were director Abbas Tyrewala, co-stars Raghu Ram and Omar, who too accompanied John in handing out the free copies.
