Deepika Padukone is “one of the nicest human beings,” says the generally taciturn John Abraham, who co-stars with the actress in new film Pathaan. Deepika, like John, is among the more reserved of Bollywood’s great and good; “for people who don’t know her,” however, John breaks it down in a promotional video for Pathaan released by producers Yash Raj Films. “I know Deepika as a person and I think she’s a lovely person. She’s of course gorgeous and I love her family – her father, her mother, her sister, they are all lovely human beings,” John says.
“Deepika has travelled a lot and I’m always happy to see her successful. It makes me happy because I’m so fond of this girl, so it just makes me happy and she’s a sweetheart. For people who don’t know Deepika, she’s one of the nicest human beings and that’s what makes me gravitate towards her – because she’s such a nice girl. I’ll always wish the best for her,” says John Abraham, who is usually economic with his words.

Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, both former models, have previously co-starred in the films Race 2 and Desi Boyz. They face-off in Pathaan in which John plays a terrorist and Deepika teams up with Shah Rukh Khan, playing the title role, against John. Pathaan, as played by SRK, is an agent who is brought in from exile and pitted against John who plays Jim, leader of a terror organization called ‘Outfit X.’ Deepika’s character forms a team with Pathaan but perhaps things aren’t entirely as they seem.
Pathaan, directed by Siddharth Anand, releases on January 25.
