A new video of John Abraham has sparked concern among fans. The Pathaan actor, who usually stays away from social media and paparazzi eye, made a rare appearance online. The star was seen wishing an avid fan on his birthday recently. In the video shared by the super fan, John was seen in his best spirits as he wished him. “Hey Yash, wish you a very, very happy birthday. Lots of love, take care, have a great day and a great year ahead,” he said in the video message. While the gesture was sweet, fans wondered if John was okay.
Several social media users on Reddit noticed that John, who is 50 years old now, appeared to have many wrinkles on his face while he sported a short hairdo. Screenshots of the video were shared on the platform with a concerned fan asking, “Is John okay?” Many took to the thread to point out that it is a natural process of aging.
“He is fine. His face seems to have a lot of wrinkles, maybe side effects of heavy workout, medications (if he takes any). Also, he doesn’t seem to be into makeup. So his face is very close to a natural one for a man his age (again, wrinkles aside),” a Reddit user said. “We are in a time where a famous person aging naturally looks strange. This is what late 40s look like without Botox and facial surgeries. Energy levels also go down so people look and feel more tired than in their youth. He honestly looks good for his age – it’s clear he is still keeping his body in shape,” added another.
However, a few fans still worried for him. “He looks like he hasn’t been sleeping since the past few days. i hope he’s ok,” a comment read. “He does look very tired. I hope he’s okay,” added another.
John had a solo release this year. He was seen playing the baddie in Pathaan, opposite Shah Rukh Khan. The actor’s performance was praised and fans even wanted to see a spin-off of his character. The film went on to do over Rs 1000 crore business worldwide. In the coming year, John has a series of releases in the pipeline. These include Tehran, Force 3 and Vedaa.
