"I am really thankful to John and (director) Milap (Zaveri) as they have decided to cast me in their film as the female lead. I feel it's a big opportunity for me. Earlier I did direction but for some time now I was trying to get back in the acting. I am grateful to John because some actors have barriers in their minds while working with a married actresses, but John is so warm and open in his approach towards co-actors. John has done a fabulous job in his recent films as 'Satyameva Jayate' and 'Batla House', so I am looking forward to working with him," said T-Series head Bhushan Kumar's wife Divya, while interacting with the media during a visit at the T-Series office, where she turned up to seek Lord Ganesh's blessings along with John Abraham on Tuesday in Mumbai.

"One of my friends went to Juhu beach a few days ago for Ganapati immersion and he told me that when he walked four steps into the water, it was full of plastic. People are talking about plastic ban but it hasn't come into effect. It's a disaster right now and the sea water is in a mess. I do believe that plastic ban should be promoted," he said.
