The lively television channel MTV has been known for its spoofs on the Bollywood actors and films. If you are a regular on the channel, you must've definitely not forgotten the episodic spoof MTV had made on Lagaan few years back. And now, after its humorous takes on some of the famous television shows, MTV has taken a big step ahead. Much prior to the release of the awaited sequel Dhoom 2, MTV has created a full-length feature film on super hit movie Dhoom. This will possibly be the first time in India that a television channel is looking forward to give a theatrical release to a spoof film.
Produced under the banner of MTV Fully Faltoo Films, the spoof titled Ghoom has lead characters named Abhishek Bachao, Who Dare Chopra and Kaun Abraham who will be doing all the action. The story is similar to Dhoom's where a super-cop tries to nab a gang of biker thieves. The film also has a title track picturized as an item number with witty lyrics.
MTV's GM of Creative and Content, Ashish Patil seems to be very excited about the whole project. He says the Yashraj films was aware of the spoof and extended their full support to the project. Planning to give a proper release to the film by releasing trailer and promotions, Ashish Patil is confident that people surely won't mind spending money for this one. Ghoom will have a theatrical release on June 2 in four cities in India.
