Eros International has just released the trailer of ‘Jhak Maar Ke’ from their upcoming film ‘Desi Boyz’. Set in London and Oxford, with some scenes shot in India and Malaysia as well, this years most anticipated comedy flick is helmed by first time director Rohit Dhawan and stars Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone,Chitrangada Singh, Omi Vaidya and Anupam Kher.
Watch the trailer of the song feat. Deepika and John, shot in London & Brighton in high definition below;
This song was filmed in Northwood, St Katherine Docks, Leadenhall Market and Brighton.
Check out some on location pictures of the set in Northwood:
The shooting for ‘Jhaak Maar Ke’ started at the end of March and this house below on The Broad Walk in Northwood was used for some scenes as seen in the introduction shots. In Desi Boyz, the character of Radhika Awasthi(Deepika) lives at this residence with her father played by Anupam Kher.
This is the balcony where Deepika is seen coming out in the trailer of the song.
The main road, The Broad Walk and Lowswood Close were used to shoot scenes for this song which are seen in the trailer too.
While Leadenhall Market in London was used in ‘Twist’ from ‘Love Aaj Kal’ before, I think it was the first time that John or Deepika actually shot there for a film. The crew also went to Brighton for a total of two days.
They filmed there for a day in March and were supposed to shoot in Brighton the following week but it was canceled at the last-minute and relocated to London. They then shot at St. Katherine Docks in London where John was seen dancing with a number of background dancers. St. Katherine Docks in Central London was alien to Deepika but John had shot there before for ‘Jhoota Hi Sahi’.
However, they did go back to Brighton for another day where Deepika was spotted dancing on Brighton Pier. The song is being described as ‘funky’ and predicted a super hit.
