John Abraham Reveals Why His Wife Priya Runchal Stays Away From Media, Says He Appreciates It

Hot, handsome, dashing and sizzling are a few adjectives that define model-turned-actor, John Abraham. His dimpled smile has made everyone go weak in their knees. The news of John tying the knot with a LA-based girl, Priya Runchal shattered the hearts of many girls out there. John and Priya walked down the aisle in 2014 in a low-key affair, and it’s been almost five years that the two are married and going steady in their marital life. (You May Also Like: Neeti Mohan Blushes As Aditya Narayan Calls Her 'Nayi Naveli Mrs Pandya', Nihaar's Reaction Is Epic)

Sometime back, rumour mills were abuzz that all is not well in John and Priya’s love paradise. Soon after that, talking to India Today about his married life, John Abraham politely snubbed all the insensitive rumours and had stated, "I don't even feel like talking about this any longer. I mean, how long can I even continue clarifying things? Every other day, there is some rumour or the other. Let people say what they have to. I'm tired of repeating what I've already said. I'm tired of justifying things, telling people what is true and what is not."

Even prior to this, he had taken to social media to rubbish his divorce rumours with Priya. John had written, “It's all crap. I just want to dismiss all of these baseless rumours. Its release time and people have no better work to do right now. I hope my words are more important than theirs, as far as my life is concerned. My film releases in a week. And I understand that we need to create stories right now, but this is so unnecessary. Let's just dismiss this. This is just not true. This is ridiculous. There is absolutely no truth to it. There's nothing wrong in my personal space, and I think that should be enough for all those who have been thinking otherwise.”

For the ones who don’t know, Priya is a financial analyst by profession and she is rarely seen on events or Bollywood parties. And now, in an interaction with Times Now, John was questioned about why his ladylove stays away from the eyes of the media. To this, the Desi Boyz actor had remarked, “This is the way I like it. She is a private person. She finished her course from a business school in London and was earlier in Los Angeles. She chooses to quietly do her work and I appreciate it.” (Checkout: Sonali Bendre Spends Sunday Afternoon With Hubby Goldie, Son And BFFs, Sussanne Khan-Hrithik Roshan)

Not only this, the doting husband further went on to add about his wifey being an amazing businesswoman. John was quoted as saying, "She also handles my football team, North East United FC, which is based in Guwahati. Managing the team is like handling two big productions."

For the ones who don’t know, John was in a live-in relationship with B-town diva, Bipasha Basu. When the two broke up, she had stated, “No. It was definitely not amicable. No break-up is ever amicable. Otherwise, no one would break up. There are always reasons. Otherwise, there won't be any break-ups.” And further added, “I felt abandoned. I was living in a lala land till then. Now sitting today, I feel I was so foolish. During those nine years, I retracted from my work, pushed back opportunities, stood like a rock for the man I loved, did not meet people just to give that extra time to make my relationship work and then I realised that the thing I was working so hard for was gone overnight. It took me months to realise that it's over and I am abandoned. I went through a lot of pain. I used to howl, went into isolation, it hurt.” (Do Check: Ekta's Son Ravie And Sakshi's Daughter Dityaa On Playdate, Former Says They're Two Mental Moms)
