Watch: John romances new girl Raashi in ‘Jaise Melein’ song
On the auspicious occasion of Eid, a new song was released by ‘Madras Café’ makers. The song goes as Jaise Milein Ajnabi. It is a soothing and touching number where an army officer John Abraham is shown spending quality time with his wife, played by debutante Raashi Khanna. The song shows the dilemma of an army officer's wife. How she longs to see him after a long wait but after few days of togetherness, he has to leave for his duty.
The song has been written and sung by Pakistani singer Zebunissa Bangash.
Jaise Milein Ajnabi begins with Raashi telling John: "I know main ek army officer ki wife hu...and I know that I need to hold my head high and all that... and I will do that, but char saal ho gaye and I keep missing you."
The song is a vital part of the movie and speaks the heart of a wife of an army officer. "In this husband-wife relationship silence does the talking most. She is not aware of her husband's work and when she comes to know about it she does not show it on his face. She is a great influence in his life and shares a beautiful relationship with him," Raashi said in an interview to PTI.
The Delhi girl is full of praise for her co-star John Abraham. "John is a gentleman. He broke the ice through casual conversation and was very easygoing and helpful during the shoots," she said.
"I was happy to be cast opposite John, but I was also nervous. I wasn't sure about the role, but Shoojit believed in me," said Raashi.
She says the movie's cast and crew helped her feel comfortable on the set.
"I was nervous and excited on the first day. John and Shoojit never made me feel like a newcomer. I had earlier done workshops with Shoojit and he didn't shout at me while shooting, so that made me feel comfortable," said Raashi, a graduate from the capital's Lady Shri Ram College for Women.
Raashi has already signed another film under John's production house - John Abraham Entertainment Pvt Ltd. But she is not ready to divulge any details.
John also gave Raashi fitness tips, "John advised me to eat after every two hours to maintain energy level. He also told me the importance of gymming and eating right," she said.
