One of the most handsome actors of Bollywood, John Abraham enjoys a huge fan following. Whether it is his dimpled smile or chiselled physique, John is one of the most loved and followed actors. In 1999, John had won the Gladrags Manhunt Contest and had later appeared in a couple of TV commercials and music videos. He had made his Bollywood debut with the film, Jism in 2003 and had become a huge sensation amongst the youth.
John Abraham had donned the cap of a producer with the film, Vicky Donor. It was after the success of the film that the actor-cum-producer, John had got married to his ladylove, investment banker, Priya Runchal. Ever since the duo had tied the knot, they have been happily married and have continued to keep their relationship as private as possible. John and his wife, Priya prefer staying away from the media glares.
Unlike other celeb couples, John Abraham and Priya Runchal hardly share glimpses of their PDA on their social media handles. However, as John turned 49 today, the handsome actor made sure to treat his fans with glimpses from his marital bliss. A few moments back, John took to his IG handle and posted an array of unseen pictures with his wife, Priya Runchal. The photos featured their dinner dates, vacation and their fur babies. The birthday boy captioned the adorable pictures with a heart emoticon.
John had got married to Priya in 2014, in an intimate ceremony with only close friends and family. On their fifth anniversary, Priya had taken to her Instagram handle to post a beautiful picture of the couple, drinking coconut water and lost in each other like a newly-married couple. Priya's caption could be read as:
"Three coconuts #happy anniversary."
Many of us had a belief that the Paap actor, John Abraham had met and proposed marriage to Priya Runchal overnight, but for a fact, the two of them have known each other for a long time. In a conversation with the Mumbai Mirror, one of John’s close friends had said:
“It all began in December 2010 at a gym in Bandra, where John and Bipasha used to work out together. Initially, Priya would only exchange pleasantries with the couple. However, slowly and surely, she started getting close to John. Bipasha didn't see the chemistry brewing between the two. Or maybe, she chose to ignore it.”
John had once clarified that Priya and he had met through common friends, who worked at the World Bank in Mumbai and it was much later that she had started coming to the same gym as John’s. However, they had gotten close at the gym and had eventually fallen in love with each other.
Happiest birthday, John! Sending truckloads of love on your special day!
