Bollywood stars do manage to make appearances in some of the social campaigns but that is the end of it. Supporting a cause may not be more than just appearing in a commercial or once or twice in public to make awareness. Not even when paid millions to endorse internationals brands will a star show the level of enthusiasm, that John has for working with PETA. As most of us know by now that John is a supporter of this organization called PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) which fights against the abuse done to animals.
John Abraham is an animal lover and therefore doesn't even eat meat. He is a 100% vegetarian. Coming back, the man completely stands for the cause of animals and supports PETA so much that before leaving for his world tour, he gave a surprise visit to the PETA office, since he was going to be unavailable to them for the next few months. He didn't give those last crucial minutes even to his producers and sponsors, who one would consider as very important people, for the fact that they are ones who pay you and make your career.
The PETA people obviously loved to have their favorite star come over and spend some quality time with them, planning to promote the cause, the organization stands for. John talked about PETA campaigns and how much he loves being a vegetarian. He also wore a new PETA t-shirt with the message saying "Real Men are kind to Animals" that supports the cause. He loved the t-shirt, but was willing to give it off his back so that it could be given away on the PETA Dishoom website.
Seems like John feels completely at home when is at the PETA office. John wandered around the office, chatting with the staff and touring the PETA Dishoom website. He posed for photos with Anuradha Sawhney, PETA chief functionary, and Jason Baker, an alumnus of PETA India, who was visiting from South East Asia.
Later John sat down with the PETA heads to discuss the next PETA ad, which apparently also features his girlfriend Bipasha Basu. The man belongs to ad world and therefore provided the team with lot of creative inputs.
Looking at this, one can definitely say that whether it be Bipasha, sports-bikes or fight for animal rights, John is just passionate about everything he does.
