Having Akshay Kumar and John Abraham share screen space leaves their fans feeling nostalgic as the paring of these actors have always proved to be a grand success in the past. They have jointly delivered major hits like Housefull 2, Garam Masala and Desi Boyz.

Akshay was seen riding on a bike and looks like we are in for a treat with some breath-taking stunts by the superstar. Akshay is no stranger to the emirates. He filmed Baby in Abu Dhabi in 2014 and a year later, he was in Ras Al Khaimah and Sharjah to film his recent box-office success Airlift.

When asked about his frequent visits to the UAE the actor said, “It’s always nice shooting in the UAE.

‘Plus, you just can’t shoot like this in Mumbai. They won’t close a part of the street for you – they’d rather close down the shoot.’

This news surely makes us wonder what Akshay’s character will be in this movie that also features Varun Dhawan and Jacqulin Fernandez in lead roles.

In an exclusive interview with Friday, John Abraham said he too was excited to be shooting in the UAE. ‘Abu Dhabi is just awesome. The authorities have been extremely helpful in making arrangements for us to shoot here,’ he said. ‘Little wonder that some of the biggest movies of recent times including Star Wars were shot here.’

Look out for the full interview with John Abraham coming out in Friday soon.
