Actor Akshay Kumar and John Abraham will soon be seen together again in Rohit Dhawan’s directorial debut ‘Desi Boyz’ after their 2005 hit ‘Garam Masala’.

Rohit Dhawan,son of filmmaker David Dhawan,who has directed the actors in the movie,says it is a “dramedy” and breaks the norms of Bollywood comedies.

“Akshay was on board from day one,when I was still developing the story idea. A two-hero movie is never easy to write and it took me almost two years to put this project together. Once I felt I had justified the presence of both the protagonists,I took the script to John who’s been like a buddy since I worked as an assistant director on dad’s film,Hook Ya Crook. He was convinced immediately,” said Rohit.

“Both Akshay and John are extremely disciplined and professional. They were always on time and focused through the day,a dream team for any first-time director.”

The cast includes Deepika Padukone and Chitrangada Singh as leading ladies and Rohit promises to bring the house down with the coming of age comedy that traces the lives of two young lads who refuse to grow up.The film will hit the theaters on November 25th.
