Way back we had reported that there were several speculations doing rounds that Saquib Salem is all set to join the cast of Rohit Dhawan's upcoming flick 'Dishoom'. Guess what! This piece of news has now turned out to be true!
Saquib will be playing the role of an aggressive, contemporary batsman in this film starring Varun Dhawan, John Abraham and Jacqueline Fernandez. Buzz is that his character is modelled on famous Indian cricketer Virat Kohli. When asked about this, a leading daily quoted the young actor as saying, "He could be Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina or Rohit Sharma. The major cricketing portions will be shot during the Abu Dhabi schedule with the UAE cricket team, with whom I will train as well. I'll be playing a lot of cricket, hitting a few sixes too. My biggest fear is that the audience will say that I acted well, but played bad cricket."
'Dishoom' brings together the trio- Varun, John and Jacqueline together for the first time on the big screen. Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala the action-adventure is slated to hit the theatrical screens in 2016.
