New Delhi: Nishikant Kamath, who has directed John Abraham and Genelia D`Souza in the upcoming action film `Force`, said the two actors share a sizzling onscreen chemistry.

Kamath, who was keen on casting Asin opposite John, had to to zero down on Genelia but is confident that the pair will hit a note with the audience.

"I assure you that they will be one of those actors who share an amazing onscreen chemistry. They look sizzling together," he told reporters in an interview.

Asin couldn`t do the movie because she had already committed dates for her upcoming movie `Ready`.

Kamath, a well known director down South, gained recognition in Bollywood with `Mumbai Meri Jaan` based on the 2006 train blasts. The director insisted that `Force` is a complete `masala` entertainer.

"Force is an action love story. Its a complete Bollywood package and full of action. The movie is an wholesome entertainer," Kamath said.

The film, a remake of the 2003 Tamil smash hit `Kaakha Kaakha` by Gautham Menon, is about a dutiful cop chasing a dreaded gangster.

Kamath made John work a hard on his body to gain muscle power and get a eight pack in order to play a cop.

"Working with John was easy. We have known each other for a long time and it`s always good to work with someone you know. The level of understanding is high."

`Force` is produced by Vipul Amrutlal Shah of `Namaste London` and `Singh is Kinng` fame and will hit theaters in July.

Besides direction, Kamath recently tried his hands in acting in the movie `404` and found it an exciting experience.

"Acting was good, but direction is more interesting. I will stick to the latter," he said.

In `404`, Kamath plays a professor who is writing a thesis on the non-existence of the paranormal. The thesis aims at proving that what we call paranormal experiences are hallucinations and mind games.

"I had to study the character a lot, it was not easy playing it. I did a lot of research for the role and studied psychology professors closely," he said.
