The power-packed trailer of "Dishoom" is out, and looking promising. What may add to the excitement is the idea that Kabir Shergill (John Abraham) and Junaid Ansari's (Varun Dhawan) many adventures will not stop with this film, and it could be made into a franchise.
"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' as this is a very young, action-adventure franchise. Kabir and Junaid [the characters] will find new problems, new issues and move to different places. It's going to be fun. It's a great film for a franchise," John told IANS.
Jacqueline Fernandez (Pakeeza/ Parvati), who is playing an "outlaw" in the film, had echoed similar sentiments in one of her earlier media interactions. She had told Catch News the kind of action "Dishoom" has and the story it revolves around makes it a good film for a franchise.
"I think all three of us have worked amazingly as a team. I think 'Dishoom' has the most amazing combination to continue as a franchise because it has got the action, chase, the whole kind of fun element wherein different characters come together. So I think it would make an amazing franchise," she had said.
"Dishoom," directed by Rohit Dhawan, arrives in theatres on July 29. The action-comedy has been grabbing headlines for one of its central characters, Viraj Sharma (Saqib Saleem), a top batsman in the Indian cricket team. There's been talk of how the actor will be playing Virat Kohli in the film. However that rumour was laid to rest at the trailer launch of the film.
Rohit told the Press Trust of India that the cricketer (in the film) is a top notch player, good-looking, attractive and a match-winner, but not Virat.
