John unhesitatingly complied to their demands at the event here Sunday, but said: “I am too shy for all this.”
As it happened, men gathered there were overwhelmed by his presence and wanted to see his chiselled body. They started screaming and asking John to strip off his shirt.
The actor, who seemed to be enjoying the attention, joked: “Already ek Dostana, Abhishek bhari padh raha hai… aur kitno ko sambhaaloonga. (I am already burdened by my friendship with Abhishek Bachchan in Dostana. How many more will I handle?)”
John and Abhishek had posed as gays in Karan Johar’s super hit movie Dostana. The joke around their friendship has existed ever since.
Meanwhile, John was at his spontaneous best at the event and even sang two songs from Jhootha Hi Sahi along with the other cast members.
The Karaoke music CD for the film, launched by Saregama India Ltd., will be available in a premium music pack, containing one song CD, one karaoke CD, an eight-fold lyrics booklet and one ‘lie detector card’ apart from two postcards, said a press statement.
