John Breaks 'Anti-graft Handi' in Hazare's Support

Mumbai, Aug 22 (IANS): Actor John Abraham Monday expressed his support for Anna Hazare's anti-graft stir by breaking a special dahi handi named 'Anti Corruption Handi' with his forehead.

"I am with Anna. All chors (thieves) should be thrown out," he told reporters after breaking the handi at Vihangs Palm Club in Thane.

At the handi breaking ceremony on the occasion of Lord Krishna's birthday there, John supported the girls' team and cheered for them. The Bollywood hunk, sporting a Gandhi cap, awed the crowd interacting with them in chaste Marathi.

John Abraham, who is set to re-emerge as an action hero with his upcoming cop-film "Force", chose to use that platform for the music release of the film. Actor Nishikant Kamat and director Vipul Shah accompanied him.

The model-turned-actor made his debut in Bollywood as a passionate lover with "Jism" (2003) and then moved on to action with "Dhoom" (2004) followed by "Kaal" and then the terrorist drama "New York" (2008).

Releasing Sep 30, "Force" is a remake of the Tamil film "Kaakha Kaakha", where John is paired with Genelia D'Souza.

    Good John u r supporting Anna. One small question for many times you have evaded paying income tax for the income you have earned in crores. I think evading tax is also corruption. Mera Bharath Mahan, soho (100) me se aassi (80) behaiman (corrupt). Jeesko chance nahi mila vahi sahi ye, bakhi sabh mokhebaz ye(waiting for chance) . How many times we avoid proper bills for evading tax specially while purchasing gold etc.How many times we forget to take bill from a retailer...this will lead to corruption...
