Bollywood heartthrob John Abraham is elated by the Oscar nomination of Deepa Mehta's film Water which stars him in one of the lead roles.

It was a very unlikely role for a man with a biker's image. But John did not let the chance of working with Deepa Mehta go by. Defying his onscreen image, the actor slipped into dhoti-kurta, learnt Sanskrit shlokas and flute playing for his character Narayan in the film.



And now that 'Water' has been nominated as the Canadian entry in Best Foreign Film category at the Oscars, John believes the movie has got its due appreciation.

John says it was the movie's producer David Hamilton who rang up to give him the good news.

"I was extremely happy and excited after hearing about the nomination," John told a news channel.

The actor also told a website that he was looking forward to attend the 79th Annual Academy Awards on February 25.

"Yes, I will be attending the ceremony," John is quoted as saying.

However, John laments the fact that people in India have still not seen the film.

'Water' is a movie about the plight of Indian widows in 1930s. The film has Lisa Ray and Seema Biswas playing two widows.
