Sajid Nadiadwala is set to make Varun Dhawan’s Dishoom a biggie
By Joginder Tuteja
Baaghi has turned out to be a huge success and is now set to go past the 75 crore mark. With this, producer Sajid Nadiadwala has opened his 2016 campaign with style and as always is playing on the front foot. While his next release Housefull 3 is all set to open huge as well on 3rd June, the game is also set for his third release of 2016, Dishoom, which is slated for July release.
“What makes Dishoom special is the fact that Sajid is making a film with Varun Dhawan for the first time ever. The young star has been enjoying a cent percent record so far after a double hat-trick (since the release of Student of the Year) and it would be interesting to see him in a Nadiadwala Grandson set up,” informs our source.
Moreover, the film also sees the coming together of director Rohit Dhawan and John Abraham after Desi Boyz, which was produced by Eros. Now the production company along with Nadiadwala Grandson is making Dishoom which is set to be an out and out action entertainer in the offering.
“As for the glam quotient, there is Jacqueline Fernandez,” the source adds, “She is a constant element in Sajid’s films like Housefull 2, Kick and Housefull 3. On the other hand other than backing Housefull franchise, Eros also gave Jacqueline a break with Aladin. Moreover, Sajid got her career back in the top league once he trusted her to deliver goods opposite Salman Khan in Kick. It is a complete circle in the making for this team which is on the right stage and setting.”
While Sajid and Eros would be keeping busy with Housefull 3 for the next few weeks, plans are already in place to give Dishoom a cracker of a start. It is a given that the film’s theatrical promo would open on 3rd June once the Akshay Kumar-Riteish Deshmukh-Abhishe Bachchan’s Housefull 3 would hit the screens. Post that it would be quite interesting to see what is further revealed about Dishoom which also has Akshaye Khanna making a comeback on the big screen as a baddie.
Now wouldn’t that be something truly fantastic?
