John Abraham must be on the seventh heaven now. Why do we say so, you ask? The actor has been conferred with Pride of the Nation award for his attempt to raise the sensitive issue of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination through his role as a RAW agent in Madras Cafe.
The award was presented to the actor by Anti Terrorist Front’s chairman M S Bitta. The film Madras Cafe set in the late 80s and early 1990s, during the time of Sri Lankan civil war and the assassination of then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was banned in certain cities, but despite all of that, Madras Cafe emerged as a hit.
Well, we would like to congratulate John on his achievement. May he win more and more of such awards.
