2008 should mark the revival of the action genre. Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan will be performing daredevil and death-defying stunts in their forthcoming films. Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision, makers of Bhagam Bhag, Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, Golmaal and Jab We Met, are ready to make one of the most expensive films ever made in India. The genre is action.
Titled Blue, the top production house has assembled an impressive line up of stars, which includes Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, Lara Dutta and Zayed Khan. Tony, a new director, has been entrusted the directorial reins of this project.
"Major action portions of the film will be shot underwater in Bahamas. In fact, the cast will be undergoing extensive training in underwater stunts before we begin filming," Suniel Shetty tells me. Reportedly, the film is budgeted at more than Rs. 100 crores.
