John Abraham is currently shooting since few weeks in Hyderabad for his UTV film Hook Ya Crook being directed by David Dhawan. 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 more. A unit source revealed to us, â€œAs few days passed by shooting in Hyderabad, John started missing his daily workouts.
After all it was his body that was more talked about than this facial muscles or 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 filmâ€™s producers. And the UTV guys without any hassle arranged the same for him almost immediately. Well perhaps they too know that its Johnâ€™s great body that will play an important role in their filmâ€™s success.â€
Another source however further added, â€œThere 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 Johnâ€™s whims and fancies when he had shown so much consideration for them.â€
Hook Ya Crook is a comic thriller that also has cricket as its integral part. The film stars Genelia Dâ€™Souza opposite John and also has Shreyas Talpade and Kay Kay Menon in pivotal roles. John we have learnt has been taking cricketing lessons from one Dinesh (Raju) Lad, who is also the coach for Indian team member Rohit Sharma.
