Actor Akshaye Khanna, who was last seen in 2012's Gali Gali Chor Hai also stars in Dishoom . In June, Akshaye told news agency PTI that he had been on a sabbatical because of personal problems.
"I had some personal issues which I had to sort out so, I couldn't work for a while. I am thrilled to be back with Dishoom and a couple of more films this year," Akshaye said.
Dishoom is also special because it stars Parineeti Chopra in a special song Jaaneman Aah, who makes a comeback of sorts with the song.
