Actor John Abraham has quashed rumours of his divorce with wife Priya Runchal, saying everything is beautiful in his marital paradise.
"Everything is beautiful in paradise. It is not true. You believe all that c**p. I just feel bad when people put out things. All is beautiful in (my) paradise," John told PTI. "I was doing a comedy film but I did not know that comedy was happening outside my life...just put all this rumours to rest...there is nothing happening. It is all superb," he added.
Gossip mills are abuzz with reports that all is not well between the newly married couple.
Priya and John have reportedly been living separately for a couple of months. Priya is in the United States pursuing her higher studies while the actor continues to reside in Mumbai. Apparently, both of them are finding it difficult to handle their long-distance relationship.
The couple got married during New Year Eve of 2013 while vacationing in the US. The 42-year-old Madras Cafe star then took to Twitter to wish his fans a very Happy New Year and subtly announced he had tied the knot with his girlfriend, by introducing his new wife as Priya Abraham.
John said he feels frustrated that his silence on his personal life is misunderstood. "It is difficult because you are trying to explain your point of view sometimes to people. John Abraham is always silent. And because he is quiet... the silence is often mistaken for his weakness."
"I believe in being quiet because I feel that is dignified. I keep quiet but unfortunately I also see lot of negative press sometimes around me and that is very disparaging and discouraging," he said.
John thinks he does not deserve negative attention. "I feel I don't deserve it and no one in my family deserves it. Just because no one speaks doesn't mean you can go out and say anything you want," he added.
