Bollywood actor John Abraham is a hulking super hero on screen, but behind all the muscles and strength he is a softie and his heart is with animals and their welfare. 

'Satyameva Jayate 2' was recently promoting their film on the recent episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati, where the team of, John was moved to tears, to the extent that Amitabh Bachchan had to offer John tissues to wipe his tears and water to calm him down.

The Satyamev Jayate actor who was playing along with his co-star Divya Khosla Kumar and producer Nikhil Advani, would donate his prize money to the welfare and care of abandoned and needful animals at the Kalote Animal Trust founded and managed by Animal Rights activist Sameer Vohra.

During the episode, when a video featuring Vohra was aired, where the young activist spoke of several incidents of animal cruelty and misfortune, John broke down in tears. 

Not just John, even Nikhil Advani was seen wiping a tear, while Divya and Amitabh Bachchan, too were moved by the stories.

John wept inconsolably and Mr Bachchan got up from his seat to offer him water and tissues.

Just before this, the actor had also introduced well-known lawyer and Animal Activist Meet Ashar, while recalling haunting stories of people abusing speechless animals by shooting and torturing them. 

John said, 

“People feel that by hurting animals they can show off their manhood. I am man too. I can break stuffs, pick up a motorcycle over my head, I can do a lot to show off my machismo. But hurting a voiceless animal is wrong.”

John, Meet and Sameer were all seen advocating a change in laws with regards to Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and needless to say, everyone in the audience including the celebs, were moved with their wise words.

I think I just became a John Abraham fan. Few celebs take up the mantle to speak for the voiceless animals. I have so much respect for John for loving animals enough and giving them that attention that could lead to a change in people’s mindset.

Our laws need to be more stringent regarding animal abuse.
