John Abraham shows off girlfriend Priya Runchal officially!

The beefy actor who has guarded girlfriend Priya from the media until now finally takes it easy

John Abraham wasn’t so protective when he was seeing Bipasha Basu. That was probably because Bips was used to handling the media.Or, more importantly, it did a whole lot of good to their brand value! But after the hunk started dating the non-filmy Priya Runchal, he has been quite protective, at times even physically guarding the poor girl!

However, this week at the GQ Awards, the actor was spotted showing off his pretty partner and blushing uncontrollably in front of the shutterbugs! And the couple looked like a million bucks – John all bulked up while Priya looking elegant and slender in a bright red dress. Makes one think, why was he hiding her all this while! Obviously, the hoopla around his break up and the controversy surrounding his relationship with Priyanka had to die down before he could come out in the open, right?

And, although the duo made an appearance together, he did not let Priyanka speak with the media. When the time came for media bytes, John quietly told Priyanka to leave! Sneaky, eh?

We wonder what gave John the new found confidence to go all out to declare his love? A little birdie told us the couple has quietly tied the knot in a temple and are keeping it under wraps.

Anyway, after this week’s appearance, it is clear that John is slowly becoming comfortable appearing in public with Priya. Well, keep it up John. In any case, you can run but you can’t hide! Guess we’ll just have to wait a little longer before we can get to speak to your special girl!
