Tune-in to the fifth season of Rendezvous With Simi Garewal as it debuts on Sunday, February 12th at 9.30 p.m. only on Star World



Mumbai, February 6, 2006? ?Gentle and romantic, also red, hot and smashing. You?re not just hot you?re on fire,? is how Simi Garewal introduces her first guest as she returns to Star World for another exciting season of her popular weekly chat show - ?Rendezvous with Simi Garewal?. The most successful chat show on Indian television is back for its fifth season with none other than Bollywood?s hottest sensation - John Abraham. Make sure you don?t miss the first episode of this season on Sunday, February 12th at 9:30 p.m. on Star World when Simi quizzes him on his love for bikes, Bipasha, money, fame and adulation.



Excerpts from the interview:

Fame and adulation is something that happens outside of you. Does it change something inside as well?

John: It does to an extent? in the sense? it works two ways actually... either you become a little more secure about yourself or you become a little more insecure about yourself post getting a lot of fame. Because the more you get the more you want and that is where most of us fall, very honestly.

Didn?t you date a lot of girls?

John: I did date girls, but there were never one-night stands or frivolous relationships.



When you started seeing Bipasha you were quite unknown and today it?s you who gets the most attention. Has that changed the balance in your relationship?

John: Hmm. Not in the relationship... but, yes the projection outside the relationship has changed, you know, earlier I was Bipasha Basu?s boyfriend but today I am John Abraham. I have an identity of myself. It?s great to be in a relationship, but it is very important to be known singularly.



Is your relationship settled enough to withstand the pressures of Bollywood?

John: Our relationship is very settled. Because Bipasha is very mature. But there are pressures other than Bollywood ? there is compatibility; there are other issues that are more important than just pressures from outside and I think that?s something we deal with in everyday life.

Are you protective or do you like to be mothered?

John: Well, I thought I was protective ? But, when Bipasha and I argue, she always says that don?t treat me like your mother. Because you know I am always being pampered, I need food to be served, but I am quite self-sufficient when I am alone. But, I guess you take people for granted when you know they are there. I know Bipasha is always around.

Are you better brother, better lover or son?

John: Better son. I would like to believe so. I want to keep my parents extremely happy.



Is money important?

John: Yes, money is very important. But I don?t splurge. For me one rupee is 100 paise. I have imbibed the value for money from my father. I did my schooling from Bombay Scottish, where all my mates had cars. I used to demand my father for a car. But, he always told me, ?learn to travel like a common man?. Even today my father travels by public transport in spite of me having gifted him a car with a driver.

Is Bike ? a female or male?

John: She. She is elegant, graceful.

So, there are two she?s in your life?

John: Yes, one keeps changing and getting updated.



And the other?

John: The other one is constant.



So this Sunday don?t miss John Abraham on Rendezvous with Simi Garewal on Star World, Feb 12th at 9.30 p.m.
