The film now features Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Suniel Shetty, Neha Dhupia and Sameera Reddy.
Says the sultry actress, “I’ve never worked with Priyan before. But I think he liked my comic timing in Race, where I played Anil Kapoor‘s air headed assistant. That’s how I got De Dana Dan. I’ve always been a big Priyan fan, by the way.”
Priyadarshan however, is currently busy with Darsheel starrer Bam Bam Bhole Sighs the super-successful director, “Bam Bam Bhole is not a small art house film. It’s a full-on entertainer. And it needs nurturing. Once I release Billo Barbar, I need to promote Bam Bam Bhole properly. De Dana Dan with Akshay, Katrina, Sameera Reddy, Suniel Shetty and Neha Dhupia will start after that.”
This was meant to be the Southern sensation Asin’s launch pad. “Yes,” concedes Priyan. “But only initially. Once the script crystallized it was Katrina all the way.”
