It takes a maverick director to propose the most expensive film in Bollywood ever and its takes a gutsy producer to agree. But to actually get the biggest cast together, combined with the finest international crew, a prodigy music composer, and an international music sensation ....Now that's either sheer madness or sheer genius!
In case you are wondering what we are talking about its none other than one of 2009's biggest and most anticipated films Blue.
Bollywood Hungama brings you some never before seen stills from Blue. So get set to dive deep into the ocean and start an adventurous expedition to uncover the treasures hidden under the sea.
Blue has a starcast that would put any big multi-starrer to shame. Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Kumar, Zayed Khan, Lara Dutta and Katrina Kaif form the principal cast who are out to find the deepest and darkest secrets hidden 250 feet below the ocean.
The film has been directed by Anthony D'Souza who makes his debut with this flick and the producers are none other than Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltd. (makers of hits such as Jab We Met & Golmaal Returns). The film has been shot at some of the most exotic locations such as the Bahamas and its India's first ever underwater film.
Blue has music by double Oscar winner and pride of the nation A.R.Rahman. What's more, Australian pop sensation Kylie Minogue has been roped in to render two tracks for this high octane flick. You surely won't be able to get this music out of your head for a long, long time.
Among the international crew, Pete Zuccarini (who has shot some of the biggest Hollywood blockbusters like Pirates of the Carribean, Deja vu etc.) is the man who has given a true international look to the film while action director James Bomalick (the man behind Indiana Jones series) is at the helm of coordinating the dare-devil action sequences. In addition, the crew also has George Peters, the Ultimate Arm Operator, who has added adrenaline to Hollywood hits like The Dark Knight, Polar Express, Superman Returns & Mr. & Mrs. Smith
Last but not the least, Resul Pookutty, Oscar winner who impressed one and all with his sound mixing in Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire is the man who will be exploring the unique sound of bubbles, lashing waves and the pure blue surf in this action adventure.
With such an ensemble cast and crew, one can't wait to check out this magnum-opus.
