Monday, September 27, 2010

MUMBAI - Hollywood star John Travolta, who is here with his daughter Ella, was honoured at the GQ Man of the Year awards event here along with his counterparts in Bollywood, Aamir Khan and Arjun Rampal.

The 56-year-old actor, known for hit films like “Saturday Night Fever”, “Grease” and “Pulp Fiction”, was given the GQ Legend of the Year award late Sunday, a day after the star flew down to India in his private Jet with his daughter.

While Aamir was awarded the GQ Cinematic Icon of the Year, Arjun was given the GQ Most Stylish Person trophy.

Aamir was so excited that John was attending the event that the actor made it a point to be there too.

“I am a big fan of John Travolta. I have seen a lot of his films. When I heard that he has come for this function, I made it a point to attend it. I’m also wearing a suit because of that,” Aamir, who was dressed formerly in a black suit and bow tie, told IANS.

John, who is on a two-day visit to India, launched a new model of Breitling watches Sunday morning. His wife Kelly Preston has not accompanied him as she is pregnant with their twins.

The Hollywood actor denied the news of his expected jig with Akshay Kumar. He is likely to fly out to Russia Monday.
