Most B-town stars will be celebrating Diwali with their family and close ones, but actor John Abraham plans to file a petition to recognise the efforts and dedication of the Indian Army and the jawans fighting at India’s borders.

Addressing the army, John said in a text message, “My hearty greetings to the Indian Army. You are the real heroes for us. While we will be celebrating the festival of lights with our loved ones, these heroes won’t even get a chance to meet and greet their families this festive season. We as a nation are indebted to you. Thank you for your courage, patriotism and selflessness to make sure we all sleep peacefully in our homes. Jai Hind!”

I am ready. I am thrilled. And I am back with twice the force!!#Force2

A source adds that the actor will also be visiting Amar Jawan Jyoti in New Delhi next month to pay his respects to martyrs. He also wants to raise awareness about soldiers whose efforts haven’t been recognised as well as the army’s contribution. “John will be launching a petition addressing the government. The petition aims to have the names of these unsung heroes get the recognition they deserve,” the source.

The actor was last seen in Dishoom co-starring Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez. He will next be seen in Force 2 along with Sonakshi Sinha.
