Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision targets 4 films for 2009-10


    MUMBAI: Golmaal Returns was the last release of Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision, which released in Diwali last year. In spite of the film doing good business, there were no releases after Golmaal Returns. However, now the company is gearing up to release at least four films for 2009 and 2010, starting with Soham Shah’s Luck, which was shot extensively in South Africa.

    Luck stars Sanjay Dutt, Imran Khan, Mithun Chakraborthy, Danny Denzongpa, Ravi Kissen, Chitrashi Rawat and introduces Shruti Hassan. Shooting for the film wrapped up in mid-February and according to the spokesperson of the banner, “The film will release on 12 June.”

    The second film from this banner is Blue, which ran into a lot of troubled waters. Fights for supremacy for screen space have seen many a tussels between its leading men, Sanjay Dutt and Akshay Kumar. Most say that this is one of the reasons why this project has not completed on time. Directed by Anthony D’Souza, the film’s cast is also backed by Katrina Kaif, Lara Dutta, Zayed Khan, Kabir Bedi and Rahul Dev. The film has been shot in the Bahamas and Bangkok. Music by AR Rahman and a song featuring Kylie Minogue are supposed to be the high points of the film apart from some dare-devil underwater sequences.

    The company’s third film Run Bhola Run is a comic caper and has Govinda, Tusshar Kapoor, Amisha Patel, Celina Jaitley, Rahul Dev and Sharat Saxena. Majority of the film’s shooting has been completely and will be wrapped up soon. Directed by Neeraj Vora, the release date of the film is not yet decided.

    Himesh Reshammiya and model turned actress Jennifer Kotwal starrer Mudh Mudh Ke Na Dekkh Mudh Mudh Ke is the last of the lot and is being planned for a release in 2010.
