MUMBAI, India: Bollywood heartthrob John Abraham, often voted one of the Indian movie industry’s sexiest stars, kills time between takes by playing computer chess, a report said Friday.

Abraham, 34, is passionate about the game. He also loves reading books and watching movies about chess players.

“Whenever I have some hours to while away, I get busy with the game. I play against the computer,” he told the Mumbai Mirror newspaper. “It’s one of those childhood habits that refuse to leave me.”

But the one person Abraham can never beat is his brother. “My younger brother Allen is perhaps the most intelligent guy I have ever met,” he said. “Over the years I have been unable to beat him at the game.”

Abraham even buys chess sets when he travels abroad — he now has 25.

Here is the full story.
