Also with actors like Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan in the role of dons, the director says that his dons will be better than the rest.

"This is will be the first shirtless don. You will not get to see anyone else like this in Bollywood. No one will be able to compete with him (John)," Gupta told reporters during the first look launch of his film here.

John also put an action-filled performance at the promotional event.

Asked if item numbers figured in the film, the director said that Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra have been approached for them.

"There are not three but four item numbers. We have approached few of them. But it's in the process and it will be wrong to name anyone," he said.

Aasked about how it was to work with Manoj Bajpai, John said:"He is a good co-star and an excellent actor. He has given many good inputs in the film."
