MUMBAI: Bollywood’s resident muscle man, superstar hunk John Abraham, was recently spotted at the unveiling of a special edition of ‘People’ Magazine, here in Mumbai.

We spotted the super sexy star dressed in the classic blue jeans white shirt combo, dishing about the juicy details of being named the Sexiest Man Alive by ‘People’ mag. Also seen at the event was Saira Menezes, Editor People Magazine.

John also was candid enough to reveal his girlfriend Priya Runchal’s first reaction to this title. He said that her initial reaction was one of disbelief. But she quickly it up with a flattering compliment.

He revealed, “She said, ‘Are you serious they gave it to you this year? You should have been getting it every year!’ I think that’s the best compliment I got,” the 39-year-old said here Wednesday while unveiling the magazine’s cover.

He also added that it feels nice to have such a supportive, appreciative girlfriend like Priya. “I asked her (how she feels about it), and she said ‘Oh, that’s good.’ That is it, she is very reserved and answers very limited. Well, I am sure she is very happy. It is nice to be appreciated for your work and when your partner is appreciative, I think it is very special,” he said.

The hunky star also got talking about his upcoming release, ‘Race 2’. John said he was back in a similar avatar that he sported in ‘Dhoom’.

“After ‘Dhoom’, ‘Race 2’ is the first film I have done in a similar space. John Abraham is back in ‘Race 2’ exactly like the Kabir in ‘Dhoom’,” he said.John has also dabbled in production this year, with ‘Vicky Donor’, and is willing to produce a movie like ‘Race’ but admits his productions are quite different from the usual films.

“Why not? I think it is important to produce entertaining commercial films. But my films have an edge, the ones I produce, and I would like to believe I possess great content and I would love to show it,” he said.

Directed by Abbas-Mustan, ‘Race 2’ also stars Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor and Ameesha Patel. The film is all set for release on Jan 25, 2013.
