The 43-year-old star collaborated with the filmmaker once again for his just released action-adventure 'Dishoom'.    

"Rohit has given his own grammar and language to this film. He is definitely more mature now. He made sure that he covered us from all angles," John told PTI.

Praising the director, who has also cast his actor brother, Varun Dhawan, in the movie, John said, "He is a big scale director who makes films for the big screen and has technically made a far superior film compared to Desi Boyz”.    

Comparing Rohit to his father, David Dhawan, known for making hit comedies, John said, "Rohit Dhawan will have his own brand of filmmaking like his father and he will create his own brand of films. During the shooting he was like a 'horse with blinkers'. He just wouldn't listen to anyone."

John said "Dishoom" is a refreshing take on earlier Hindi movies.

"'Dishoom' is a new age film and it's for the audiences of today. People shouldn't expect it to be a film where they would only get to see fighting. It is an upgraded version of what Hindi films used to be. It is very refreshing, new and a roller coaster ride."

The actor-turned-producer also discussed about the difference in stories that he likes to act and the ones he produces.

"When it comes to act in films, I generally concentrate on concepts and that's all we are expected to do as actors. I like comedy so I do roles in such films. I've worked in six comedy films. But while producing, it takes me a lot of time because then I kind of delve into more and try to get stories that are radically different."

John has produced four movies so far including 'Vicky Donor', 'Madras Cafe', 'Rocky Handsome' and 'Satra Ko Shaadi Hai', which is yet to release. He will next be seen in 'Force 2' alongside Sonakshi Sinha in the lead role.
