Rohit Dhawan’s comedy traces the lives of two young lads who refuse to grow up. Talking about reuniting the duo Rohit says, “Akshay was on board from day one, when I was still developing the story idea. A two-hero movie is never easy to write and it took me almost two years to put this project together. Once I felt I had justified the presence of both the protagonists, I took the script to John who’s been like a buddy since I worked as an assistant director on dad’s film, Hook Ya Crook (2010). He was convinced immediately.”
Rohit terms Desi Boyz as a “Dramedy”, starring Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone and Chitrangda Singh. “Both Akshay and John are extremely disciplined and professional. They were always on time and focused through the day, a dream team for any first-time director,” says Rohit talking about his first experience working with the two stars.
