Mumbai, October 19, 2015: John Abraham who is suffering from a knee injury, has been advised by his doctors to rest for the next three weeks. The 42-year-old, who was in the middle of shooting for Sajid Nadiadwala’s Bollywood movie Dishoom, directed by Rohit Dhawan, has almost completed the first schedule.

The second schedule requires the actor to shoot for some heavy action sequences. But because he cannot resume work until his knee is better, now, a solution has been devised. An insider reveals, "The film's producer, Sajid Nadiadwala, and director Rohit Dhawan, have decided to swap the upcoming schedules."

As per the revised plan, John will film all the dialogue-heavy portions of the movie, which will consist of close-up shots, in Mumbai in November.

The insider adds, "The action sequences, which were meant to be shot in Abu Dhabi, UAE, have been postponed. This will give John enough time to recover. The action scenes will be filmed later, when John is completely fine."

The action sequences of the Hindi film are tentatively scheduled for February next year. Dishoom also stars Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead roles.
