August 04, 2010 15:26 IST

His is the most famous derriere in the country and now actor John Abraham is going the Jennifer Lopez way by getting his asset insured for a sum of Rs 10 crore.

The 37-year-old actor, who showed off his toned body in Dostana, has decided to buy a policy that "extensively covers any possible risk to his famous body part," a source said.

"Yes, there is an initiative from my side but this is a work in progress. I am meeting various people for this. At this point I would not like to say more," Abraham said.

However, it may not be easy for John as insurance companies in India are not into insuring celebrity bodypart.

If it happens, the New York actor may be the first Bollywood celebrity to get cover on his body part after Rajnikanth reportedly got his voice insured.

Many celebrities in West including German supermodel Heidi Klum, supermodel Claudia Schiffer and footballer David Beckham have shelled out huge amount to insure their body parts.

The actor begins shooting for Dostana 2 later this year. His long stuck film Aashayein is also releasing on August 27.
