John Abraham clears the air about how he met the love of his life Priya Runchal. And no, it was not at the gym!

Much has been said about how John Abraham met his current ladylove Priya Runchal for the first time. While speculations were rife that the two met at the gym where the actor and his former flame Bipasha Basu worked out, there were many fingers pointed at Priya for being an apparent home wrecker.

However setting the record straight, John clarifies that Priya and he in fact met through common friends, who worked at the Mumbai office of the World Bank.


At a promotional event for his upcoming film, John gets rather candid about his love life. He states, `Priya was here doing her stint at the World Bank. It was much later that she started coming to the same gym where I worked out.`

While the two have been together for quite a while now, John says they are in no hurry to tie the knot. He says, `Right now Priya is studying and she has two more years to go. So it will happen once she completes her education. But we are in a very happy space right now.`


The actor heaps praises on his sweetheart and adds that the couple tries and meets each other at least once in two months. `She is a very sorted and mature girl and we respect each other's space. She is in London right now.`
