Most A-list stars tied-up with films till next year
MID-DAY (June 11, 2012)
Although every star is doing one film at a time, most of them have been booked till the end of next year
Leading the pack is is the workaholic Akshay Kumar, who has half a dozen films lined up for the next 12 months, followed by Ajay Devgn with five. Interestingly, Aamir Khan, who doesn’t listen to a script till he’s free of his pending assignments, has two more films after his suspense thriller Talaash that is slated to release on November 30.
He has started shooting Khiladi 786 with director Ashish R Mohan and has two more releases this year — Shirish Kunder’s next Joker and Special Chabbis, Neeraj Pandey’s heist flick based on a 1987 incident in Mumbai. What is also noteworthy is that he’s taking a month-long break in July, for his son Aarav’s vacation. He will then complete Khiladi 786 which is also his co-production with Himesh Reshammiya and start working for Milan Luthria’s sequel to Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, followed by Ghajini director A Murugadoss’s second Hindi film. Besides, he’s also doing the remake of the Telugu film Ko with Prakash Jha next year.
He is working for Arbaaz Khan’s Dabangg 2 and has planned his 2013 with buddy Sooraj Barjatya’s new film Bade Bhaiyya and youngest brother Sohail’s next Sher Khan.
Currently juggling the shooting of his production under the aegis of Ashwni Dhir (Son Of Sardaar), is also overseeing the post-production of his other film, Bol Bachchan, helmed by Rohit Shetty and releasing early July. Then he moves on to Sajid Khan’s remake of Himmatwala and Prabhu Dheva’s third Hindi venture. Also in the pipeline is another film with Rohit and Prakash Jha.
He continues to follow mamujaan Aamir, and has committed to two more films. Having wrapped up Vishal Bhardwaj’s next Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, the younger Khan will start shooting with Akshay for Milan’s OUATIM sequel, followed by Punit Malhotra’s next for Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala’s adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s 2 States.
Imran’s arch rival is committed to films by Anurag Kashap as well as his brother Abhinav Kashyap. He’s presently shooting for Ayan Mukerji’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Diwani and awaiting the releae of his Anurag Basu directed film Barfi.
Seems to be the most choosy actor. He has only Krrish 3 in hand. Maybe that’s because he’s also the associate director of daddy Rakesh and has to oversee the post-production next year, after they finish film by this year-end. There is buzz that he might be working in Shaad Ali’s next project.
Saif Ali Khan
He only has the sequel to Judwaa after the Abbas-Mustan’s Race 2 he’s currently filming in Turkey.
