    The much-anticipated trailer of Dishoom starring John Abraham, Varun Dhawan, and Jacqueline Fernandez is finally out. And as Catch revealed earlier, it has the leading men playing the roles of spies set on a mission to find the lost champion batsman from the Indian cricket team -- Viraj, played by Saqib Salim.

    While the 3 minute-18 second trailer shows the fun bond between John aka Kabir and Varun aka Junaid, it also features Akshay Khanna and Nargis Fakhri who are playing supporting roles in the film.

    Directed by Varun's brother, Rohit Dhawan,Dishoom is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. Watch the trailer of this yet another Eros Now entertainer here:

    There are not many cricket-based films in India that have had a successful Box Office run, but Dishoom seems to have the potential to break this mould. While it has its own 'sporty' moments providing the much required adrenaline rush, the mystery angle may work in the film's favour.

    Even though the characters appear to lack 'never-seen-before' elements, they seem to have interesting personal traits. Varun Dhawan's character, for instance, is a Muslim man named Junaid Ansari. However, while introducing himself, he makes it a point to mention that he's a Modi (PM Narendra Modi) fan.

    'Khata hun inki... lekin sunta hun sirf Modi ji ki' -- says Varun Dhawan.

    Dishoom is partly set in the Middle East and therefore, its music and dialogues seem to have a lot of Arabic influence. The movie is set for release on 29 July.
