At the trailer launch of the film, when asked about the similarities with Dhoom and if Dishoom can also be made into a successful franchise like Dhoom, John said, “When I heard the script of Dishoom, the first thing that I told Sajid (Nadiadwala) and Rohit (Dhawan) was that Dishoom will go up to Dishoom 8 because this is a very young, action adventure franchise.
Kabir and Junaid (their characters) will find new problems, new issues and move to different places. It’s going to be fun. It’s a great franchiable film.”
John’s character in the film is also named Kabir like it was in Dhoom. “Except the name, it’s a different template. It’s a different format, it’s very different and I really love this space.”
About his special moments from the film, John said, “All of us coming together is fantastic, with Sajid it’s my second film. I can confidently say that I’m really close to him. Rohit is like my younger brother. With Varun, what you can see on the screen, we are the same off the screen. Our chemistry is absolutely fantastic.”
Varun Dhawan said that he felt “super emotional” being directed by his “perfectionist” brother Rohit Dhawan for their film Dishoom. “For me, honestly, it is super emotional. He’s my brother and he is my hero in real life. And I even remember when Desi Boyz released, I went to every theatre and tried to find out what the audience reaction was.
It’s different from my film releasing or my father’s film releasing or a friend’s film releasing. I can’t really put it in words how it feels, when your own blood gives his life to make something special. Dishoom also releases on July 29.
