If you thought that the year 2005 had its share of biggies, you’re grossly mistaken. There’s going to be an avalanche of biggies in the next twelve months, all produced by A-listers. From Yash Raj to Karan Johar to Vidhu Vinod Chopra to Ramesh Sippy to Subhash Ghai to Rakesh Roshan, don’t be surprised if you witness two biggies [on an average] hitting the marquee every four weeks.
Yash Raj will have at least four releases next year: Kabul Express, Fanaah, Dhoom 2 and the Shimit Amin-directed film with SRK in the lead. Karan Johar will be ready to face the audiences with Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, while Rakesh Roshan is expected to release Krrish in the first half of 2006.
Vidhu Vinod Chopra will have two releases next year: Eklavya - The Royal Guard and the sequel to Munnabhai M.B.B.S., titled Munnabhai Meets Mahatma Gandhi… Nikhil Advani, whose directorial debut Kal Ho Naa Ho had released in Diwali 2003, will release his second venture, Salaam-E-Ishq, in Diwali 2006 [yes, he has already confirmed the date].
