John Abraham and Varun Dhawan starrer ‘Dishoom’ has been finally released and as promised by the makers, Dishoom’s trailer is surely a treat on the big screen. The trailer of “Dishoom” is full of action. It will present John as Kabir, Varun as Javed and Jacqueline as Ishika. Both John and Varun work in the security forces while Jacqueline plays a complicated character, who is also a double agent for ISI and RAW. Akshaye Khanna plays the main antagonist and Saqib Saleem has a supporting role.

There was a strong rumor doing the rounds that Rohit Dhawan’s film, ‘Dishoom’ has a character based on one of India’s most favorite cricketers, Virat Kohli. The film which stars John Abraham and Varun Dhawan revolves around how a prominent Indian cricketer gets kidnapped 36 hours before the final match between India and Pakistan. The character of the cricketer in the film is incidentally called Viraj Sharma and is essayed by Saqib Saleem.

This is the first time Varun Dhawan, John Abraham and Jacqueline have featured together in a film.

At the trailer launch of ‘Dishoom’, Rohit clarified, “The cricketer in the film is India’s top batsman, just like Virat Kohli. He is athletic looking, extremely attractive, just like Virat Kohli. He has the habit of winning matches which would otherwise be lost, just like Virat Kohli. But his name is Viraj Sharma and he is not Virat Kohli.”

Varun also said that the film is not against Pakistan and does not show the country in poor light. He said, “I would like to clear this. There is no negative reference against Pakistan or any community. It is a very positive representation. In fact, what we are trying to show is that for certain people, money is the religion. It’s not being an Indian, Pakistani, Hindu, Muslim or Christian. In the capitalistic world that we live in, money is the biggest driving force for most crimes.”

Special mention to Varun Dhawan’s comic timing, that seems to be getting only better with time. In a scene, with Jacqueline, he appears upside and tells her, “I’ve been practicing the Spiderman kiss for years. Let’s?” and even though the dialogue is quite appalling, you can’t help but smile. While the film seems rather predictable and has its share of all the masala elements to make it a commercial entertainer, there’s something about the film’s no-nonsense plot, which paced quite well, makes us curious to watch it.
