Dishoom is a word that describes the noise of someone landing a punch in an old Bollywood movie.
In that spirit, the latest video which has surfaced from the Abu Dhabi set of Dishoom the movie is of stars John Abraham and Varun Dhawan landing some swift blows to the face of co-star Saqib Saleem.
The fight sequence was filmed on Tuesday afternoon, on a small speedboat, with the Abu Dhabi Corniche skyline in the background.
The video was filmed by Abu Dhabi boat-tour operators Xventures, who have accompanied the Dishoom crew for the past two weeks of their seafaring schedule. The company’s managing director, Tony Hajj, taught Dhawan how to steer a speedboat, and last week, the Xventure staff were up at the crack of dawn to ferry the cast and crew on and off Abu Dhabi’s luxurious Nurai Island, for scenes that were shot there.
This week, Dishoom has also been filming at Emirates Palace Marina.
Hajj, who is Lebanese, posted on Instagram to share his excitement at being involved with the big-name Bollywood production: “xventures #shooting a #bollywood #action #movie in #inabudhabi. what an #amazing #experience. We are involved in all the #water #stunts and #boats #charters. Let the party begin.”
Dhawan and Abraham were also joined behind the scenes by Afghani singer Ghazal Sadat, who is based in Dubai. She posted a Facebook video of Abraham praising her singing and saying that he would love to work with her.
“Extremely humbled & thankful that Bollywood Hearthrob #JohnAbraham enjoyed my last single #Janeman. He has expressed his desire to feature in my next … something Huge coming soon #superexcited.”
