John thankful to mother for social work

Mumbai, April 29 (IANS) Actor-producer John Abraham says his mother is involved in a lot of social work for humans as well as animals. Ahead of Mother’s Day, which falls May 12, he says she is the best mom one can have.

“Thank god I have got someone like my mother in my house who devotes more time to these children and also animals and old age homes… That’s the best mother one can have,” the 40-year-old said here Saturday at an event organised by Make-A-Wish Foundation.

He credits his mother for teaching him how to be more caring towards the lesser privileged.

“From there I actually started understanding about this and my mom introduced me to Make-A-Wish,” he added about the efforts of the NGO, which seeks to fulfil the wishes of kids affected by life-threatening diseases.

John himself supports a lot of causes, but he says the need is to do something more.

“I want to do something definitive. I am thinking about doing something out-of-the-box because if in today’s time we do something regular, it goes unnoticed. I am talking about Make-A-Wish and not myself,” John said.

“I’ll have to understand what can I do that gets the media to support it,” he added.

John will soon be seen in “Shootout at Wadala”, which hits theatres May 3.
