'I hope I get some good films'

Unlike his costar John Abraham, Uday Chopra did not have a passion for bikes. But Dhoom changed that.
"I simply love them now! We have a lot of bike stunts in the film, and I have fallen in love with motorcycles," Uday says.
When asked why he's always a part of two-hero films, Uday sounds philosophical: "I guess I get only those kinds of roles. I do not get interesting scripts for single heroes. People feel that I am happy in two-hero films! But I don't mind it if the script is good."
Uday loves doing action films, even though he barely gets any. "I have done action films like Haasil and Supari. But at the moment, I am offered only comedy roles. My face and my screen presence gives me an edge for comedy, so people offer me those kinds of roles. My face looks witty and comedy is second nature to me. I guess audiences like me in those kind of roles. I want to do intense action roles but no one is offering me those," he says.
The film has Esha Deol playing his love interest. Rimii plays Abhishek's wife.
"Dhoom is a very different kind of film. Audiences will be surprised to see the characters in this film," says Uday, who claims to be a laid back person in real life. "I enjoyed the song Dilbara. [Music director] Pritam has given great music."
Dhoom will release on August 27.
