UTV announces dates of three big-ticket filmsUTV Motion Pictures has announced the release dates of three of its big-ticket films.
While the Akshay Kumar-Sonakshi Sinha-starrer Joker will release on 31 August, the Anurag Basu-directed film Barfi! will release on 14 September. These will be followed by Madhur Bhandarkar-helmed Kareena Kapoor-starrer Heroine on 21 September (2012).
Barfi!, that stars Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileyana, is the story of Barfi-the chalu Chaplin who the girls love but the cops hate. He canít speak but is always talked about. His naughty antics will make one scream but he never listens, because he canít.
On the other hand, the country's first ever extra-terrestrial drama, Shirish Kunder-directed film Joker is the story of Agastya (Akshay Kumar), a researcher probing the existence of aliens in the universe who returns to his small little native village. The out-of-luck Agastya takes it upon himself to put his crazy village on the global map and continues with his exploration on aliens from there.
While his plan gets the village attention from across the world, it also comes with a great deal of risk. Will aliens save the day for Aghastya or will his plans fall like a pack of cards?
The film has been produced by UTV Motion Pictures, Three's Company and Kumar's Hari Om Productions.
Lastly, Heroine is based on the life and times of a superstar heroine from the dream factory we call 'Bollywood'. The film is an entertaining, daring, emotional, shocking, glamorous, scandalous behind the scenes account of the reality behind the world of glitz and glamour that our film stars inhabit.
For a country obsessed with films and film stars, Heroine will take audiences on a voyeuristic journey to see what really goes on behind the closed doors of make-up rooms and vanity vans. It gives them a chance to go beyond the gorgeous smiles and politically correct quotes, to see what really happens in the lives of India's sweethearts.
The film has been produced by UTV Motion Pictures and Madhur Bhandarkar.
