art director David Bryan is set to make his Bollywood debut with Abbas Tyrewala's next film, a romantic comedy based in London starring John Abraham.



Bryan, who was widely praised for his life like replication of the battle scarred streets of Iraq in Jordan for the six Academy Award winning film, has been signed as the production designer for Tyrewala's

1-800-Love

.



Speaking about his experience in the film, Bryan said, "We wanted to portray the real London that is rarely seen, it's an amazing city with very diverse locations. In particular we were looking for a real iconic Studio Apartment for our lead actor John Abraham. Later in Autumn, the climax to the film grew into an epic 4 nights filming on Tower Bridge with John doing his own stunts, a real star."



The

director is leaving no stone unturned to recruit talented people to mount his next venture on a large beautiful canvas.



Last year during the shooting of the film in London, the production team had managed to block off traffic completely on Tower Bridge for 3 nights and had shot several scenes with even boat traffic on the Thames being restricted.



"Working with a Bollywood crew was a great experience, much more than on a similar British film," Bryan said.

, which is now under post-production, will be Bryan's first release after
