Bush, and how he came to be in possession of several Ak47s and plastic explosives that were confiscated from his taxi-cab. Written by

Did You Know?
In January, 2009 one of the film's crew members invited John Abraham
, Katrina Kaif
, Kabir Khan
and other crew members to his birthday party at a local nightclub in New York. While the crew members, who arrived in one car, were allowed into the nightclub, the actors, who had arrived in another car, were denied access by security who did not recognize them and who demanded identification. Neither they nor some crew members (who came from inside to help out) were able to convince security that they were important stars in India. By the time Abraham, Kaif, Khan, and Mukesh had returned with identification, the party had ended. See more
