HOOK YA CROOK can well be considered as a project that has taken the longest time ever for a David Dhawan film to reach the finishing mark. Announced way back in December 2006, HOOK YA CROOK is David's long pending dream that is waiting to be materialized. Change in cast, availability of the right actors, recession plaguing the industry and accidents during the shoot are just some of the many reasons that have continued to the delay this film from seeing the light of the day.

With producers UTV Motion Pictures not putting their money on any newer and bigger projects, the production house may well be pining on it's long standing project HOOK YA CROOK. "By December, we should be though with the shoot of HOOK YA CROOK. Since the film is set in a jail and cricket plays an important part in the narrative, we are waiting for the dates from some key Indian cricket players", says David Dhawan whose last release was DO KNOT DISTURB.

David Dhawan denies though that the film has been held back because of this very reason. "There is so much which is required in the making of a film. While we are waiting for this last schedule to get over, which would last for about 10 days in total, there is good progress being made on the post production activities. The film is certainly not on hold, as some rumour mongers are busy predicting."

Originally supposed to star Siddharth, Amrita Rao, Aditya Panscholi, Uday Chopra and Irrfan Khan, HOOK YA CROOK now features John Abraham, Genelia D'Souza, Shreyas Talpade, Kay Kay Menon and Sharad Kapoor. David Dhawan is gearing up to finish the film soon though and release it in 2010.
