What John said about Shobana

In an interview from February 2016, John was asked if he was marooned in an island and had to pick one woman whose company he would like, then who would he choose. In response, John said, “I will tell you one actress I would like for company. Shobana! She is one of the most gorgeous women I have seen and one of the most talented women I have seen.”

When asked whether John has seen any of Shobana’s dance performances, he said: “Yes I have! I have seen her in Ramayan, where she plays Raavan. I was amazed! I have met her, so I think that she is one of the most respectful, dignified woman I have come across. When you talk about beauty, especially the eyes, I would say I would love to be marooned in an island with Shobana not for any other reason but she makes intelligent conversations. She is superb!”
