This pic is surely the pick of the lot! This has got the three actors having a blast atop a bike! Needless to say that the trio included Tusshar Kapoor, Nikhil Dwivedi and Pitobash.
This snap has Tilak ‘bhai’ meeting crazy Mandook! For those who feel that these names are Greek and Latin, you have to watch the film to know what we are talking about!
This pic has got me and Raj directing Sendhil. Trust us when we say that the location was a ‘real’ house in Versova village. The residents absolutely had no idea what was in store for them when they allowed us to shoot!

“This is the scene in which Suniel Shetty sees Akshay and Sonam embracing each other. We shot it in Toronto.”
