John Abraham is one of the few Bollywood actors who are known for their kind personalities. Recently, the actor went out of his way to ensure that his co-actors did not have to face any inconvenience. Apparently, during the lunch hour at the shoot of Anees Bazmee’s Welcome Back in Chandivali Studio, Powai in Mumbai, the actor offered the character artists his vanity van so that they could eat their lunch there. “The actors’ vanity van was stuck in traffic and couldn’t reach the studio on time. But John was gracious enough to offer them his van,” says Bazmee.

The director adds that this off-screen chemistry between John and his co-actors reflected on screen also. “It helped make things go smoothly on the sets,” adds Bazmee.

Welcome Back is a sequel to the 2007 film, Welcome. Although it won’t star Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif and Mallika Sherawat, who were part of the original, it retains actors Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar and Paresh Rawal.
