‘Dishoom’ is an intelligent masala film : Saqib Saleem

Actor Saqib Saleem, who is set to essay a cricketer in the upcoming actioner “Dishoom”, says it is a “full action” and an “intelligent masala” film.

“‘Dishoom’ is a full action film. You have to wait for the film to know about it… It is a superb script and I think Rohit (Dhawan, director) has made it into an intelligent masala film,” Saqib told IANS.

“When one makes a masala film, they make a masala film and when an intelligent film, there is an intelligent film. So for me ‘Dishoom’ is an intelligent masala film,” he added.

“Dishoom” also features actors Varun Dhawan, John Abraham, Akshay Khanna and Jacqueline Fernandez.

The “Mere Dad Ki Maruti” actor also shared that he has no scenes with Jacqueline.

“My cricketing portions are separate from Jacqueline and John. In fact me and Jackeline didnt shoot together at all. We have no scenes together. All my major scene are with John, Varun and Akshay,” Saqib said.

“We had a ball shooting this film. Everyone on the set was nice,” he added.
