MUMBAI: Spotted was the very hunky, the very stylish and the very handsome 40 year-old actor-turned producer John Abraham at the press conference announcing ‘EQUATION’: a fund-raiser for equality in Mumbai, last evening.

We glimpsed the handsome actor-cum-producer at the press conference, to launch ‘EQUATION’. ‘EQUATION’ is a fund-raiser set up by an NGO founded by Bollywood actor Rahul Bose. The fund-raiser will see an auction, where sportspersons will donate their belongings for the auction. The proceeds of the auction will go towards helping children in need. There will also be a live performance on 1 March, which will see legendary tabla-player Zakir Hussain live in concert.

John was naturally chuffed to be present at the auction, and the uber-fit star looked classy and chic in a chocolate brown shirt and blue jeans. Seen giving him company was Rahul Bose, clad in an all- black ensemble. Also present were Neil Nongkynrih, Director of the Shillong Chamber Choir and Devendra Bharma, Executive Vice President, Oberoi Hotels and Resorts.

John also spoke about his love-life, and future plans for marriage, when he said, “Right now Priya is studying and she has two more years to go. So it (marriage) will happen once she completes her education. But we are in a very happy space right now.”

John was sporting enough to reveal the romantic beginnings of his and girlfriend Priya Runchal’s relationship. “Priya was here doing her stint at the World Bank. It was much later that she started coming to the same gym where I worked out.” And that’s where the duo met and reportedly began dating. John is said to be serious about this relationship, and has even revealed his plans of marrying Priya. “Priya and I have decided to get married this year,” he’s been quoted as saying to a leading newspaper.
