Cash is Dus on steroids: Zayed

Cape Town: After Mauritius, Malaysia and New York, it's now the turn of South Africa to be at the centre of attraction for Bollywood filmmakers.

Cash, which is an action packed thriller, is the first Hindi film to be shot entirely in Cape Town and the stars are gearing up to completely cash in on their work.

Handling a motley crew of Ajay Devgan, Zayed Khan, Ritiesh Deshmukh, Suniel Shetty, Shamita Shetty, Esha Deol and Diya Mirza is Dus director Anubhav Sinha.

"It's an action thriller, in a comic strip style," Ajay Devgan said. While for Zayed Khan it is basically "Dus on steroids."

And supporting Zayed, Ritiesh Deshmukh said, "There are hardly any scenes. Its an edge of the seat entertainer."

With sky diving, kite surfing, skate boarding and fight scenes expected to figure in the film, it seems like South African action director Anthony Stone has quite a lot on his hands.

"It's amazing to see how quickly they have picked up. I think it's got to do with the dancing you show in your films," Stone said.

And as for the leading ladies, apart from the action scenes they have been working hard on their looks as well.

"Has anybody seen me with a Mohawk? The director likes to work on each character, and I like experimenting," Esha Deol said.

"He asked me to chop off my hair, that's eight inches off and coloured it red. I think it's working," Shamita Shetty said excitedly.

Well, as long as the end result is exciting, one doesn't mind the haircut or the Mohawk.
