These days, film stars prefer to live a transparent life and social media plays a very handy role in this. The latest to do so is actor John Abraham who has denied the rumours of any fight with fellow actor Akshay Kumar.

In fact, he joked about it and said that Akshay ‘would beat him up’. On Wednesday, John tweeted, “Heard that my brother @akshaykumar and I are fighting..he would beat me up. Sorry to disappoint but NO truth to this. The only explosions happening currently are on screen in Parmanu.” Akshay also tweeted, dismissing the rumours. The actor also said he would soon watch John’s film, Parmanu.

John and Akshay have worked together in films like Desi Boys and Dhisoom. They are known to be good friends.

Parmanu, which released on May 25, is already making a profit and John is ecstatic about it. In a conversation with ANI, he said, “I was shocked and encouraged by the response the movie got. I want to give credit to the director for bringing out the best in me.”

As per film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Parmanu has already earned Rs 28.69 crore at the box office. A statement from the film’s publicity team said that the film is made at a budget of close to Rs 36 crore, and its satellite rights are sold at a price of Rs 27 crore. Therefore, the film is already making profits for the makers.

John will next be seen with Manoj Bajpayee in Satyameva Jayate.
