The director of Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na, Abbas Tyrewala, is back with a bang with his much-awaited film, Jhootha Hi Sahi. This movie, produced by Saregama, has become a little more special for Abbas as his wife Pakhi has not only written the movie, but she also makes her Bollywood debut as the lead actress opposite a geeky John Abraham. The filmmaker returns with a love story again, a realistic one that everybody can relate to, and is about a new set of friends.

Jhootha Hi Sahi is about a guy called Siddharth, played by John, who gets into trouble in his love life because of his white lies. John has already garnered rave reviews for his appearance as he sports an interesting, geeky look, which is accentuated by him wearing spectacles and having a body not nearly as perfect as we are used to seeing John with. The film holds a lot of promise as it is anticipated that such a package of a star cast and music created by AR Rahman will make it a winner at the Box Office, as well as bowl over the critics. The wait to catch the film is now over as it releases today, and John is urging one and all to not miss this light-hearted movie. John says, “This is a fun film, and I promise you that you’ll fall in love with each and every character. Abbas has done a great job with the film.”
