Finally, it's happening for debutant director Tarun Mansukhani. The cast and crew of his film Dostana left on Friday, for Miami for a non-stop shooting on the beaches there. Two of the three principal actors have been rushing to complete their projects. Abhishek Bachchan has been working round-the-clock completing the current schedule of Rakeysh Mehra's Dilli 6.

Priyanka Chopra was going ballistic trying to wrap up Madhur Bhandarkar's Fashion before rushing off Bangkok to shoot an ad with Saif Ali Khan, She joins the Dostana gang in Miami from there. Only John Abraham who plays Abhishek's best friend and flat-mate in Dostana was relatively free before departure. "I've been going crazy trying to wrap up all my work here before heading to Miami with my director," Karan said hours before leaving the country for a month-and-a-half. "It's at times like these that I miss my father the most. He'd have made all the pre-production work plus travel arrangements look like a cakewalk. I'm going insane trying to cope."

While in the US Karan also intends to finalise locations for his own directorial venture Khan which he intends to shoot in New York at the end of the year. "Once we're in the US and the shooting for Dostana starts I'll leave my director and his team to their own devices. I'll just be there in the background. Let me tell you, Tarun has written one of the funniest scripts I have ever read. It is a very urbane kind of comedy. I don't know what the so-called interiors are going to make of it."
