"He also allows our business to connect with millennial audiences, which is critical to our continued growth and success," said Shadab Khan, Chief Executive Officer of GNC India.
Talking about his journey in Bollywood, John said, "When you are a newcomer you always have to prove yourself. I always had to prove myself at every point, even after 'Parmanu'. I don't hold any grudges. I have a beautiful relationship with the industry.”
"I was the captain in my school at the forefront of doing things. I always had an identity of myself. This very strong sense of self has put me in a situation today where I never wanted to be a part of any entourage or any camp. I have survived that way," John told PTI.
