John Abraham certainly knows how to make the girls drool over him.

After launching his own clothesline, the Bollywood heartthrob has launched a collector’s edition calendar.

Shot exclusively by celebrity photographer Subi Samuel the calendar was launched with much fanfare on Monday at Sejjo and The Soul Dish, Bandra, Mumbai.

Going by Subi’s words the calendar has some sizzling pictures of the star. Says the ace photographer, “We chose the theme as nature because we didn’t want to give an artificial look to it. We wanted to stick to nature and its beauty. And that’s why we chose Goa as the location. So, you have the sun, the sand, the beaches, the sea and you have John.”

Ask him why Goa and he promptly replies, “What better place than Goa, specially because we wanted a lot of sun and sand in the background. And believe me the pics are amazing. The shoot took about two days and I’ve tried my best to cover the beauty of Goa.”

Does that mean that the calendar is all about Goa? “No,” says he, “See we knew we were shooting a calendar with John Abraham and therefore it had to be him as the main attraction. But at the same time we had to very careful while executing the shots as we didn’t want the pics to say ‘Hello, Look at me I am John Abraham’. We wanted it to be different. And believe me… the calendar has John Abraham in a never seen before mode.”

Yeah…after seeing the pictures we can certainly vouch for that.
