Bollywood actor John Abraham attended the 11th alumni meet of Jai Hind College as the chief guest. The event took place at the Nehru Centre Auditorium, Worli, Mumbai on 1 February.
John is an alumnus of Jai Hind. The college boasts some big names in its alumni list, including Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Isha Kopikar, Malaika Arora Khan, Ramesh Sippy, Sunil Dutt, Neeta Lulla, Atul Kasbekar, Hiten Tejwani, Natasha Suri and Ajay Piramal.
John was pleased to be present as a chief guest at the meet. Speaking at the event, the actor said: "I am one of the blessed proud Jai Hindites who not only did his major in economics from Jai Hind but like any other student roamed around roads A and B... Today being called here as a chief guest makes me feel really embarrassed. I would love to be associated with Jai Hind Alumni Association and my professors who still scold me as an ex student only."
Last month, it was revealed that the "Madras Cafe" actor had tied the knot with his girlfriend Priya Runchal in a private ceremony in Los Angeles. The news came as a real surprise to many in the film industry.
On the career front, John will soon be seen in Anees Bazmee's "Welcome Back", a sequel to the 2007 blockbsuter "Welcome." The film will reportedly have a Christmas release this year and is likely to clash with Ranbir Kapoor's "Bombay Velvet" at the box office.

Shivdasani, Mr. Ramesh Taurani (Tips Industries), Mr. Niranjan Hiranandani (Chairman - Hiranandani Construction), Mr. Nikhil Chaturvedi (Provogue), Mr. Kailash Agarwal (Founder of Varun Industries), Mr. Warij Kasliwal (S.
