Percept Picture Company and T -Series hosted a party for unveiling the first look of Nagesh Kukunoor's forthcoming film Aashayein in Mumbai yesterday. While the film's lead star John Abraham couldn't make it (as he is busy shooting in Miami) everyone was quite surprised to see John's parents (Abraham John and Phiroza Abraham) making their presence felt at the event. It was quite an emotional moment for his parents and they said that they had a special bond with the title of the film and the word 'Hope'.
Abraham John, John's father said, "My father, (John's grand father) was a great believer of Hope and throughout his life, he believed and preached that even at the darkest of moments of life, there is always a ray of hope. Even when he was 95 years old, he kept preaching everyone to see life as a bright star and not as a burden". John's father also added that he was extremely proud of the kind of films director Nagesh Kukunoor makes.
Immediately after seeing the first look of the film, John's parents called him in Miami and had a teary eyed conversation about how good Aashayein looked and how proud they are of him. Even John Abraham was surprised to know that his parents had attended the function on Nagesh Kukunoor's behest.
The cast and crew of the film Aashayein including actors Farida Jalal, Sonal Sehgal, Anahita Nair, music director duo Salim Sulaiman , Elahe Hiptoola, Divya Khosla Kumar, Shailendra Singh of Percept and director Nagesh Kukunoor were in attendance at this memorable event.
