Farhan Akhtar is delighted to have Hrithik Roshan and Abhay Deol as his co-stars in Zoya Akhtar's new film.


"Having two friends like Hrithik and Abhay Deol to do this male bonding film with me is a blessing. Abhay, I've known from the time he stepped into my role in Reema Kagti's Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd. I get along famously with both of them. So shooting this male-bonding film with Hrithik and Abhay in Spain should be loads of fun."


Continues Farhan, "Hrithik has been a true friend from the start. He not only did that cameo in Zoya's Luck By Chance, he also agreed to accommodate Zoya's new film. I start directing Don 2 from September 2010. And Zoya's film had to be completed before that. Hrithik adjusted his dates accordingly.


Male bonding has always been a strong theme in Farhan's career as a director and actor. "That's true," admits Farhan. "But no one will say Zoya's film with Hrithik, Abhay and me is in any way similar to my Dil Chahta Hai or to Rock On. Zoya's is a different zone of male bonding. I've done just one scene with Hrithik in Zoya's Luck By Chance. Now I've a chance to do a whole film with him. Both Hrithik and Abhay are actors I admire greatly."


Zoya Akhtar's second directorial, goes on the floors in April 2010 with the dream team of Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol.
