MUMBAI: The release of screenplay and dialogue writer Abbas Tyrewala’s directorial debut Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na has seen an unforeseen delay.
The movie, which is being produced by Aamir Khan Productions and presented by PVR Pictures, was earlier scheduled to release in February. However, the release has now been postponed to 4 July, 2008.
Speaking to Businessofcinema.com, Tyrewala says, "The movie was supposed to release much earlier. However, due to post-production hassles, it’s been pushed back for a summer release."
Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na will be the launch pad for Aamir Khan’s nephew Imran Khan. Cast opposite him is Genelia D’Souza. Made on a budget of approximately Rs 80 million (Rs 8 crores), the love story is set in a college campus. Tyrewala has also penned the script of the film.
The music of the film is by AR Rehman. Actors Aamir Khan, Naseeruddin Shah, Ratna Pathak Shah, Arbaaz Khan and Arshad Warsi will be doing cameos in the film. The film will be distributed in India by PVR.
When queried on his upcoming projects, Tyrewala says, "Although there have been quite a few talks, nothing is confirmed as of now. I will only take up anything else after I’ve finished this project."
Apart from Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na, Aamir Khan Productions also has another film on the floors titled Delhi Belly being directed by Swedish director Robert Nylund. While Aamir will not star in the film, talks are on to rope in Ranbir Kapoor. Yet another untitled film, which is still in its scripting stage, is also slated to mount the sets later this year under Khan’s banner.
