Milenge Milenge

Producer Boney Kapoor's long-in-making Milenge Milenge will give another chance to the lovers of sweet-corn-delight Jab We Met to watch Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor together on screen maybe for one last time. Directed by Satish Kaushik, the music for this romantic comedy has been given by Himesh Reshammiya and will be one of the Big highlights of the film. We are sure the whole world is eagerly looking forward to the crackling chemistry of Shahid-Kareena. Can't wait for the release date guys!

Pankh

Bipasha Basu credibly proved her acting prowess with Madhur Bhandarkar’s Corporate. She is daring to experiment once again with Sudipto Chattopadhyay’s Pankh, a film about gender confusion in a child’s mind. Bipasha is playing a Bollywood star in the film and in a recent interview with IndiaFM she had admitted that Pankh is a film she is excited about. Let’s see if it generates excitement and curiosity amongst audiences as well.

Singh Is King

Akshay Kumar is having a dream run at the Box Office. One of the sure shot hits in his kitty in the year 2008 is speculated to be Anees Bazmee directed Singh Is King where gorgeous Katrina Kaif is paired opposite the Jubilee Kumar. Celebrated director Vipul Shah will be seen in the role of a producer of this lavishly landscaped film. Shot in the salubrious Gold Coast in Australia besides other locations, Singh Is King is one film to look forward to.

Wanted Dead And Alive

The breathtaking backdrop perfectly compliments the dazzling first time pairing of Salman Khan with Ayesha Takia in this First Look of Boney Kapoor’s Wanted Dead And Alive (A remake of South super hit Pokhiri). Directed by dancing sensation Prabhudeva (also the director of the original), this hugely mounted film is about an undercover cop’s tryst with mafia. Music by Sajid-Wajid is definitely going to be a plus point considering their last outing Partner with Salman is still blaring from all quarters. Wanted….At the earliest!

Tashan

The screenplay writer of mega hits like Dhoom and Dhoom 2, Vijay Krishna Acharya will be making his directorial debut with cool-dude-attitude style flick aptly titled Tashan. While Saif Ali Khan and Akshay Kumar will hog the ‘action’, Kareena Kapoor will covet the glam-doll-moments. Anil Kapoor, reveling in the super reviews for his gun-toting ways in Welcome will be seen in a negative role. Another cute little feature of Tashan will be the debut of Saif’s son Ebrahim who will be playing his screen son. So, are you ready for the flaring fire between Saif-Kareena? Maybe the famous love-‘bites’ will be a thing of the past

Karzzz

He is a rare phenomenon. For whatever he does, turns into gold. Himesh Reshammiya after making a splashing debut with Aap Ka Surroor is ready to return the Karzzz of the masses with the Remake of Subhash Ghai’s magnum opus which is being produced by numero uno music label T Series. While the actress for Tina Munim’s role is yet to be penciled in, Urmila Matondkar in all probability will be essaying Simi Garewal’s part in this Satish Kaushik thriller. A potential musical blockbuster… Don’t you think!

Ugly Aur Pagli

Mallika Sherawat has a subtle flair for comedy while Ranvir Shourie is one of the most improved actors around. The two have been paired in Sachin Khot’s Ugly Aur Pagli and if the first look is anything to go by then there’s lots ‘cooking-under-the-blanket’ or so it seems. This PNC film is touted to be an intelligent comedy, something similar to Pyaar Ke Side Effects. If all the ingredients are mixed in the right amounts, this one has a pretty good chance of pleasing the multiplex crowd.

PS: A steamy Mallika number will whet your fantasy-prone-mind like never before.

U Me Aur Hum

Ajay Devgan, a National Award winning actor is an extremely good student of cinema. It’s obvious when he decided to take a plunge in direction with a romantic film U Me Aur Hum, there’s bound to be loads of curiosity. Moreover with a super performer like Kajol by his side, there’s an added value to the product much before it has been released. Another definite attraction will be Vishal Bharadwaj’s surprise-worthy music score. U Me Aur Hum….Hmmmm….Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha
