After working together in Housefull and Chandni Chowk To China, it was difficult for director Rohit Dhawan to show Akshay Kumar and Deepika Padukone at loggerheads in Desi Boyz. Deepika is paired opposite John Abraham and hates Akshay’s character. After failing to get their expressions right, Rohit created situations off camera where the actors fought. “It was awkward for them to fight on screen. I had to push them to make their dislike obvious,” says Rohit.
