Akshay Kumar & John Abraham Became ‘Desi Boyz’

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.

Eros International’s Desi Boyz releases 25 November 2011.
