Meet John Abraham's special buddy of seven years, who even accompanies the star to the exclusive screenings of all his films
Most stars are quite guarded about their real-life friendships and John Abraham is no different. But for 28-year-old Suku Kumar Saroj, being one of the closest people in John's life is as good as a dream come true.

The auto driver, who was brought up in a little chawl in Ghatkopar, hardly ever thought that he would meet his all-time idol one day, till he spotted John at Bandra Bandstand.
Now seven years later, he is one of the few people who don't exactly need an appointment to meet the Bollywood hunk.
Says Suku Kumar who addresses John as Bhai, "When I saw him in Bandra for the first time, he was in his car. I asked him to give me his number.
He was really nice to me and promised that he would share his number next time." And as luck would have it, Suku kept bumping into the actor regularly ever since.
He adds, "I sit with Bhai and watch all his films. I recently even watched Force and loved it. Now if I don't see bhai for a few days, I get really restless."
In fact he has even visited John's brand new duplex apartment at Bandstand. "Bhai is really nice to me. At one time, I wanted to become an actor and I even told him that. He always advises me to drive carefully. I've even met his father."
John does a Salman
The other hunk in the industry, Salman Khan is also known for his friendship with rickshaw drivers and even street kids in Bandra. People also refer to him as Bhai.
