Actor Varun Dhawan said that his Dishoom co-star John Abraham helped him with his action sequences in the film.
"When you are doing action, you are taking a risk. You need someone to back you. Whenever John was around, he used to take safety precautions and then I would do it," said Varun.
"John would do every stunt first and then I would it. Even if he was not supposed to do the stunt, he would still do it for me. He was a huge support system," added Varun.
However, Varun also said that they injured themselves while performing an underwater action scene.

"The film Dishoom has been very challenging. There is a lot of action in the film. John and I have done daredevil stunts," said Varun.
Varun revealed that as a child, he used to get beaten up by Rohit. "Rohit is a very talented and good director. I am glad that I got the opportunity to work with him," added Varun.
Rohit also praised his younger brother.
"Varun is a good actor. It is not necessary that he should work on every film of mine. If there is something for him, I will talk to him. If he likes the idea, he can come on board," said Rohit.
Dishoom also stars Jacqueline Fernandez.
"With John and Jacqueline on board, you will also become a fitness freak. You end up working out and going to the gym," said Varun.
