I’m still mid­dle class: John

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - HTCITY LIFESTYLE -

He may be a Bol­ly­wood star with a huge fan fol­low­ing, but John Abraham (left) says he is still rooted to his mid­dle class val­ues. The ac­tor, who re­cently met some school stu­dents, says he en­joys vis­it­ing schools. And that meet­ing kids face-to-face helps them un­der­stand that stars, too, are af­ter all, just hu­mans.

“Like how I sat with the kids, they feel that, ‘He is our guy, he talks like us and he is a nor­mal man and we can re­late to him... His val­ues are quite mid­dle class’, which are like their val­ues. They like it as I be­long to a mid­dle class fam­ily, and I am still mid­dle class. My val­ues, my par­ents are very mid­dle class. I would sug­gest the kids not to lose their value sys­tem,” says John, who also shared some words of wis­dom with the chil­dren — “Three things are very im­por­tant. First, ed­u­ca­tion. Sec­ondly, even if par­ents (or any­one) tell you to give bribes, don’t be­cause there is a lot of cor­rup­tion in this coun­try. Thirdly, all are equal, so treat ev­ery­one with re­spect.”
