Nagesh Kukunoor unveiled the look of his forthcoming film Aashyein starring John Abraham. John Abraham was not present there because he was shooting in Miami but everyone was very surprised to see John's parents (Abraham John and Phiroza Abraham) who filled in for his absence.
Both the parents were extremely emotional and said that they had special bond with the title of the film and the word 'hope'.
Abraham John, John's father said, "My father, John's grand father was great believer of Hope and all through out his life believed and preached that even at the darkest of moments of life there is always a ray of hope. Even when he was 95 years old, he kept preaching everyone to see life as a bright star and not a burden."
They were seen as extremely shy and didn't want to interact too much with unknown people. John's father added that "he was extremely proud of the films that Nagesh makes".
Immediately after seeing the first look of the film, the parents called John in Miami and had a teary eyed conversation about how good Aashayein looked and how proud they are of him. Though John was sleeping that time he couldn't stop himself from talking to his parents.
He was also surprised to know that his parents had attended the function on Nagesh Kukunoor's behest. Infact John's parents had suggested him to do this film after hearing about the film. They both were heard saying that although we are not movie buffs and rarely watch a film, we will definitely watch Aashayein.
