Mumbai: In his directorial debut Rohit Dhawan is all set to bring back the comic pair of Akshay Kumar and John Abraham after seven years in Eros International’s Desi Boyz.
The two actors go back a long way after their partnership in Garam Masala in 2005.
Says Dhawan, "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 was convinced immediately."
Desi Boyz also stars Deepika Padukone and Chitrangada Singh.
"Both Akshay and John are extremely disciplined and professional. They were on time and focused through the day, a dream team for any first-time director," says Dhawan.
Desi Boyz is slated to release on 25 November.
