Shooting along with Chitrangada Singh for Shrishti Arya’s I, Me Aur Main and hearing her co-star’s constant chatter about her son, has apparently, stirred John Abraham.
Suddenly, the actor has become extra determined to take his mother, who is a Parsi, to where she always wanted to go Iran. Sources say that they will fly as soon as the current schedule of IMAM is over.
A source close to the actor said: «John’s mother has many relatives in Iran, She hasn’t met many of them for years and has been talking about going to the country for a long time. John had secretly promised himself he’d take her there one day. But that “one day” never came due to his busy schedules. He has now adopted a do-or-die attitude for the trip.»
John said: «My mum is from Iran and she has some 22 cousins there. I want to take her there to meet all her relatives.»
Abraham was born in Bombay to a Malayali father and a Parsi mother. His father is an architect from Alwaye, Kerala; his mother is named Firoozeh Irani (فیروزه ایرانی). Abraham’s Parsi name is Farhan while his father being a Syrian Christian named him John.
