Jerry Rocco Patel (Akshay Kumar) and Nick Hunter Mathur (John Abraham) originally came to the UK to study as overseas students at Oxford University. Some years later, life is good in their comfortable London pad. Nick's got a lucrative investment banking job and a beautiful fiancee, Radhika (Deepika Padukone). Jerry happily sponges off his wealthy pal while bringing up his nephew Veer (Omi Vaidya). But then the recession starts to bite, Nick finds himself abruptly downsized, and social services threaten to place Veer in a foster home. What to do? Why, strip off and earn a living as sexy pole-dancers of course! But under their new alter egos Rocco and Hunter, the two friends now become bitter rivals.
