John Abraham’s passport woes stop him from shooting for the sequel of ‘Race’

While the ensemble cast of Abbas Mustaan’s next is in the exotic locales of Turkey shooting for the thriller, the handsome hunk – who is also in the film – is making the rounds of government offices back home

A few weeks ago, the Bombay High Court suspended the 15-day jail sentence awarded to model-turned-actor John Abraham for the negligent and rash driving incident occurred in 2006, but the case continues to give grief.

The handsome hunk was going to join Saif Ali Khan, Anil Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Bipasha Basu and others for a 45-day shoot in Turkey for Abbas Mustaan’s Race 2. But now he is stuck in India. According to the rules of the Eurasian country, a visa applicant must have a passport valid for more than six months. John’s passport expires in less than six months, so he approached the Indian authorities to renew his travel document.

But the Regional Passport Office, as per a 1993 circular, said that if a person has any pending case in the Indian judicial system, permission from the court is required for renewal or issue of a passport. John pointed out to the authorities that the High Court had granted him probation from the case under the Probation of Offenders Act. But it turns out that suspension from the punishment doesn’t amount to acquittal from the charges.

So as of now John’s passport won’t be renewed. That means he doesn’t know when he can join his Race 2 team in Turkey.
