‘Dishoom’ has no similarities with ‘Dhoom’, say John and Varun

Mumbai, June 2 (IANS) The lead actors of “Dishoom”, John Abraham and Varun Dhawan, have denied any similarities that the film has with one of John’s most popular films “Dhoom”, which has become a successful franchise now.

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”, Varun said: “This is nothing like ‘Dhoom’, but because John was in the first ‘Dhoom’, I think he should answer why it is different.”


“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 said.

John’s “Dhoom” was one of his biggest hits, and the franchise grew bigger with superstars like Hrithik Roshan and Aamir Khan taking it on a higher level with “Dhoom 2” and “Dhoom 3”.

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.”

“The experience was absolutely fantastic. We had a lot of fun, great action, the actions sequences in the film are very large, it’s really huge scale film. It’s very special, it comes from the heart. We’re not forcing the line,” he added.

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.”

“Jacky (Jacqueline Fernandez) is a sweetheart. I’ve been a huge fan of Akshaye (Khanna). So the fact that he is in this film means so much to me personally.”

John was last seen in “Rocky Handsome”.
