John Abraham is all set to play a goon named Ajju Bhai in his upcoming 'Welcome Back'. The handsome hunk even learnt the tapori lingo to get into the skin of his character in the film.
Recently in an interview to a leading daily, when asked about him stepping into Akshay's shoes who starred in the first film John was quoted saying, "I look at 'Welcome Back' as a fresh canvas. I never replaced Akshay. I have learnt a lot from him. When I signed this film, the first person I called was him. He was really happy. He said, "Tu yeh picture kar." We share a beautiful relationship which goes beyond films. He is like an older brother and we do keep in touch. I recently met him. He is strikingly handsome, such a beautiful man. I love his positivity."
Directed by Aneez Bazmee 'Welcome Back' has a star cast of Nana Patekar, Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Shruti Haasan, Ankita Shrivastav, Naseeruddin Shah and Dimple Kapadia. The film will hit the big screens on 4th September.
