Movie Update

One of the most awaited releases of 2007 is Farah Khan's second directorial venture Om Shanti Om, earlier titled Happy New Year. It stars Shah Rukh Khan and debutante Deepika Padukone, who happens to be the daughter of former badminton champion Prakash Padukone.

Vinod Khanna is looking forward to his comeback (his second one) film Risk, a thriller with a family backdrop. Directed by Vishram Sawant, the film also has Randeep Hooda and Tanushree Dutta in pivotal roles. Vinod plays a gangster in it.

David Dhawan is all set to remake the 1970s' blockbuster Amar Akbar Anthony with the Khan brothers. While Salman will play Anthony (played by Amitabh Bachchan in the original), Arbaaz will play Amar (played by Vinod Khanna) and Sohail will step into Rishi Kapoor's shoes as Akbar.

It's the coming together of two greats — Aamir Khan and Mani Ratnam. After much speculation, it is now official that Aamir will play the lead in Mani Ratnam-directed Lajjo, a love story based in Rajasthan. Kareena Kapoor will star opposite Aamir.

Madhur Bhandarkar is working on his most glamorous and expensive film to date. The movie titled Fashion will delve into the world of modeling, featuring real life models.

The cast of Pradeep Sarkar's next film, as yet untitled, has been decided. Sarkar will make the film for Yash Raj Films and it has Anupam Kher and Jaya Bachchan playing husband and wife. Rani Mukerji and Konkona Sen Sharma have been cast as the daughters of the house.
