Abhishek Bachchan as Sameer Born and raised in London, now in his early thirties, Sameer works in Miami, as a male nurse at St. Steve’s Hospital. A goofy kind of guy, who yet has the ability to charm his way into anybody’s life. Sameer is the man with the plan. Plans the he seldom thinks though its consequences.
John Abraham as Kunal Kunal is a guy in his early thirties. Tall, suave, confident and good looking who has this brooding quality about him that makes girls swoon over him. Which he plays to his full advantage. He’s a fashion photographer who is pretty straight edged, responsible and an organized man who has a life in order except for his residence permit as he is an illegal immigrant.
Priyanka Chopra as Neha Neha Melwani is a 27 year old, contemporary Indian woman. She is a smart, gorgeous and stylish woman, working at a fashion magazine called Verve. Hard working and someone who loves her work, she longs to settle down and have a family. She is respectful, intelligent and also innocent which sometimes lands her into trouble.
