Mumbai, Sept. 24 -- The mahurat shot for Power took off with a scene where Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn are on a hunt for baddie Balraj, played by Anil Kapoor. Next, the leading ladies were introduced. Anuradha Patel has been paired opposite Amitabh Bachchan, Lekha Washington opposite Ajay Devgn and Ameesha Patel opposite Sanjay Dutt (that's probably the Manyata connection). Ameesha Patel turned up late and had to wait until after the shot to be called up on stage for a photo opportunity.

The film is being directed by Rajkumar Santoshi and produced by Firoz Nadiadwala. Santoshi said that he is in talks with Kangna Ranaut to play the lady paired opposite Anil Kapoor, and her presence at the do hinted at the possiblity that the deal has been locked. Shooting for the film commences in Mumbai on October 4, and is followed by schedules in both Delhi and Muscat.
