I don’t know why it is such a big deal that even International Herald Tribune reported about it. IHT report wrote:
Indian model-turned-actor John Abraham says he was nervous about shooting his latest film, "Baabul" or "Parent's Home," because he was working with some of Bollywood's biggest stars, a newspaper reported Wednesday.
In the film released earlier this month, Abraham shares screen time with top Indian stars including Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Rani Mukherjee and Hema Malini.
"It had a full-on cast and every one of them has proved themselves in mainstream cinema. I was new to this set up," Abraham said according to The Asian Age newspaper.
It is natural that John Abraham felt this way. After all, he is more of a model than of an actor. He has to work harder to improve his acting. Acting is different than modeling and he has to remember it.
