MUMBAI: Reliance Web World was the hub of all activity recently, where ‘I, Me Aur Main’ stars John Abraham, Prachi Desai and Chitrangada Singh paid a visit to the store to promote their latest film.

Looking tres casual in loungewear were our Bollywood stars John, Prachi and Chitrangada, doing their bit to promote their latest film ‘I, Me Aur Main’. The film reportedly revolves around John and his laid-back, lazy ways and his relationship with his girlfriend (played by Chitrangada) and his neighbour (the girl-next-door, if you will; played by Prachi).

We spotted the very hunky John in a grey V-neck button down tee, and a pair of light grey slacks, as he spoke at length about the film and how his character is similar (and dissimilar) from him in real life. Also seen at the event was Chitrangada, looking pretty in a black high-street top and skinnies, with a pair of aviators framing her gorgeous face. Prachi in contrast chose to wear a maroon coloured floor-length dress, which she accessorized sensibly with a simple bracelet and a beaded sling bag.

John Abraham, Bollywood’s latest actor-producer, who was behind the very successful ‘Vicky Donor’ starring VJ-turned actor Ayushmann Khurrana, revealed that he feels filmmakers don’t need to spend a lot of money to make a good film. “Being an actor and film producer I feel that good ideas make big films, not the budget. A filmmaker does not need to spend crores to make a good film.” Wise words which ring true, because his film, directed by Shoojit Sircar was reportedly a medium-budget film which went on to do big business and was appreciated by the audiences.

Prachi Desai was quick to praise John’s acumen as a producer, and why the team felt lucky to have him on board. “He has lot of experience in the industry. Now, he has become a producer I feel that he has changed a lot. The little things he has incorporated in himself are absolutely great. We were lucky that he was so involved in ‘I, Me Aur Main’.”

Speaking about John the gentleman, Prachi added, “John is very charming; he is a true Parsi boy. He looks after everybody he works with and is lovely to be around. He is soft spoken and genuinely nice to everyone.”
