Mumbai, Jan. 29 -- John Abraham, Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez recently started shooting for their next, Rohit Dhawan's directorial, in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

The schedule kicked off on a special note for the makers as well as the cast of the movie, as they were welcomed by His Highness Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan to his palace a couple of days ago.

Apparently, when Sheikh Nahyan, who heads the UAE Ministry of Culture, Youth and Social Development, learnt about their shoot in Abu Dhabi, he invited them to have lunch with him and his family.

A source says, "Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, who is one of the most powerful personalities in Abu Dhabi, celebrated his birthday on January 25. So, the lunch, which was attended by Rohit, John, Varun, Jacqueline and Sajid (Nadiadwala; producer of the film), became like a post birthday celebration for the sheikh."

Apparently, they spoke at length about cinema and the two countries. "The team will be shooting in the city for about 40 days. The sheikh has been generous and has extended all the support they need for the smooth completion of the schedule there," says the source.

Despite repeated attempts, Sajid couldn't be reached for a comment.
