John Abraham is currently shooting in Hyderabad for his UTV film HOOK YA CROOK being directed by David Dhawan from last few weeks. Now since it is a very long shooting schedule, John is going to be holed up in the Charminar city for a good one long month time.
A unit source revealed, ''As few days went by in Hyderabad, John started missing his daily workouts. After all it was his body that was more talked about than his acting skills in his recent hit DOSTANA. Not in a mood to lose his well sculpted shape, he demanded a private gym arrangement with the film's producers. And the UTV guys without any hassle arranged the same for him immediately. Well perhaps they too know that its John's great body that will play an important role in their film's success.''

However another source held that, ''There is also a special reason behind UTV officials sanctioning a private gym immediately for John. John had volunteered to cut off 60% of his remuneration for the film understanding well the problems of on going recession. So in a way the UTV guys were more than happy to accommodate John's whims and fancies when he had shown so much consideration for them.''
HOOK YA CROOK is a comic thriller that also has cricket as its integral part. The film stars Genelia D'Souza opposite John and also has Shreyas Talpade and Kay Kay Menon in pivotal roles. John, we have learnt has been taking cricket lessons from Dinesh (Raju), who is also the coach for Indian team member Rohit Sharma.
