Dishoom is an action-adventure film directed by Rohit Dhawan starring John Abraham, Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez in lead roles. This is the first time Rohit will be directing his younger brother Varun. Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, the film is slated to release in 2016. However, it has already grabbed eyeballs and is making news for Varun Dhawan and John Abraham’s fans.
Varun Dhawan has been appreciated in all his films for his cuteness. But in this action thriller, he will be seen doing some action along with John Abraham. He is all set to thrill his fans with his role in the film. Varun’s character in Dishoom requires him to speak Urdu, and the actor wants to make sure that his diction and pronunciation are like a native speaker of the language. He is also gearing up for the stunts in the film.
Jacqueline Fernandez will be seen sharing screen space with Varun Dhawan in Dishoom and the actress took to Instagram to share some of her pictures clicked in Morocco. According to a Mumbai Mirror report, Jacqueline has been training for the film since eight months and can now perform stunts upside down with ease. The actress decided to go in for an entirely revamped look for Rohit Dhawan’s film. It was her co-star John Abraham who suggested she work on smaller muscle groups. “John and Varun are both really fit and I want to keep up with them even though we keep talking about food constantly,” Jacqueline had said. “They’re both serious about fitness and keep competing over abs and biceps while I like to fool around and bring out the five-year-old child in me. Boys will be boys and girls will be girls,” the actress added.
It’s John Abraham who comes to mind when you think of bikes in Bollywood. In fact, the actor has been bonding with his co-star, Varun Dhawan, over several topics related to the two-wheeler. Reportedly, Dishoom involves stunts on motorcycles. Confirming the news a spokesperson had said, “The action sequences that John and Varun have been shooting for are of very high standards. When the scenes required bikes to be involved, John was very hands-on about how to use them, and manoeuvre them while doing the stunts. That’s why both John and Varun have been discussing bikes in full detail.” Varun is happy to be shooting with someone who has complete knowledge about bikes, as the scenes were shot on a tough terrain, in places like Ouarzazate, where Hollywood films such as Lawrence Of Arabia (1962), The Mummy (1999), Gladiator (2000), and Kingdom Of Heaven (2005), among others, have been shot. Varun confirmed the news, saying, “John is amazing on the bike. So, he has been teaching me some tricks. They aren’t easy, but working with him on the bike stunts has been a really cool experience. Our film comes next year, so we are trying to make sure the action is really fresh, and is something no one has seen before.”
