Below in Part 2 Abbas reveals more about his upcoming film Race 2, which Bollywood megastars the duo would like to work with and whether we will seem the duo working with the Khan’s of Bollywood again!
DB: Your films are known for being slick and fast paced with lots of twists, will be expecting the usual Abaas-Mustaan masala in Players?
Abbas: Definitely, it will be just like our past films, from Khiladi, Baazigar, Baadashah, Ajnabee, Humraaz, Aitraaz and Race. It’s a fast paced film with lots of entertainment. Hopefully people will love the film because it is an edge of seat thriller.
DB: Most of your films have a strong multi-star cast, is that always the priority?
Abbas:No. We don’t think in that way. The subject we select is always a multi-star cast film. It happens naturally we don’t think we want to make a multi star cast film. When we select the script it comes out in a multi-star cast way.
DB: Will we be seeing Abaas-Mustaan working with Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan or Sharukh Khan again anytime soon?
Abbas:Of course. We have been discussing a lot with them. We have been in talks with Sharukh and Akshay and we will come up with a surprise in the next few months!
DB: Will you be shooting any of your films in London soon?
Abbas: We have not decided yet. There is one film that I don’t want to disclose as it is being finalised. But maybe we will be shooting in the UK sometime soon.
DB: As there is two of you, there must be moments that you have arguments who always get there way?
Abbas: We are brothers; we have been working for the last 25 years together. There is no issue of ego clash and after working for so many years we have started thinking alike. Of course there is difference of opinion but we solve it before we go on the sets. We decide everything for the betterment of the screen. We discuss it out and see what is good for the script, and then we agree.
DB: Which actors which you have yet to work with would you like to see in you films?
Abbas: Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan.
DB: Can you tell us a bit about Race 2?
Abbas: We have already started shooting for Race 2 last month. We have shot for 15 days and after the release of players on 6th of January we resume the shoot in mid Janaury. The film stars Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, and the girls Bipasha Basu, Deepika Pudukone, jacqueline fernandez and Ameesha Patel.
DB: Last few words for your UK fans?
Abbas:We would like to wish our audience who watch our films a very happy and prosperous and rocking New Year. And would like them to start the New Year with watching our film Players in the cinema and to enjoy it!
