“The film does bring our ‘bromance’ onscreen. Akshay and I share a very special equation and the film is an extension of our offscreen and onscreen bonding,” said John, who was here Thursday to promote his film.
John was accompanied by Akshay and the film’s leading ladies, Deepika Padukone and Chitrangada Singh.
“Desi Boyz” is directed by Rohit Dhawan, son of popular filmmaker David Dhawan. But the director’s style is different from his dad, says Akshay.
“The way Rohit has made this film is very different from the kind of comedy films we have seen. His take is exactly opposite from that of his father’s works. Rohit is a happy-go-lucky person and very honest with his work, and his way of dealing with comedy is very subtle,” said Akshay.
The film is about two friends who become a victim of recession, how their friendship sours and how they end up being employed as pole dancers.
