John Abraham has a huge fan following, and the latest in his list of admirers is funnyman Arshad Warsi.

"John is a buddy. He is one of the nicest people I have ever met. He is so genuine. I think all parents should have a son like John Abraham. He even convinced Maria about my bike," said Arshad.

Incidentally, both John and Arshad are avid bike enthusiasts and got on like a house on fire while shooting for Kabul Express, reports Bollywood Trade.

"The film is loosely based on director Kabir Khan and his friend Rajan's experiences in Kabul. Kabir is a documentary filmmaker. I play Rajan while John plays Kabir in the film.

 

 John is one of the nicest people I've met, says Arshad

"We both play journalists and it is about the adventures we have. There are three other characters - a Pakistani Taliban (militiaman), an Afghan driver and an American photo journalist."

Shooting in Kabul must've been an arduous task, considering the deadly weather and reports about John contracting influenza?

"Doing anything in Afghanistan is like inviting trouble. We did receive threats and all but we had huge security. Travelling from our hotel to the location was unnerving, but once we reached the location we used to feel relaxed."

Arshad also has a minuscule role in Zamaanat starring Amitabh Bachchan and Karisma Kapoor.
