John Abraham might be relieved since

Aashayein

finally releases at the end of this month, on August 27. The film is a ray of hope for the actor. Reason: he was going through a difficult patch in his personal life. Coincidentally, director Nagesh Kukunoor was shooting the film at Pondicherry, where the actor shot his debut film,

Jism

, with girlfriend Bipasha Basu, who, then was just a co-star.

While filming

, he was getting romantically inclined towards Basu. Ironically, before

Aashayein

kicked off, their relationship went through a rough patch. Regardless of that, the actor got into the skin of his character, who is a person who understands the value of living life to the fullest.



As the shooting progressed, Abraham realised that someone was putting things in perspective, helping him understand them better.



“That’s when John understood that love and care are the most precious elements of our lives. Just after his take of the climax was okayed, he rushed to his room and broke down. Everyone was stumped,” says our source from the

Aashayein

crew.



After he regained composure, the actor called his family. “He spoke to his parents and brother. He also called Bipasha. At the end of their long conversation, John seemed to be at ease with himself,” adds our source.



While the actor declined to comment on his state of mind during the

shoot, he was more forthcoming on his role: “We all have a certain amount of time to live, and we should try and live it to the fullest and fulfil our wishes too.”
