Latest Bollywood Releases

The YRF 2007 Calendar showcases the entire line-up of films to be released by Yash Raj Films in the year 2007.

The first Yash Raj Films release of 2007 comes up on the 27th of April and is the sophomore effort of Siddharth Anand (Salaam Namaste). Entitled Ta Ra Rum Pum, it stars Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji.

Barely two months after 'Ta Ra Rum Pum' comes Shaad Ali's third directorial venture 'Jhoom Barabar Jhoom'. With a stellar cast of Abhishek Bachchan, Preity Zinta, Bobby Deol, Lara Dutta, and Amitabh Bachchan in a special appearance, and the established credentials of the young director, 'Jhoom Barabar Jhoom' looks set to repeat the nationwide success of 'Bunty Aur Babli'. June 15 is the day to 'Jhoom Barabar Jhoom'.

Yash Raj Films support to young directorial talent continues unabated with their third release of the year, 'Chak De India', slated to hit the screens on the 10th of August. Directed by Shimit Amin, it stars Shah Rukh Khan and will no doubt give a whole new profile to sports themed films from India.

The festive season will be celebrated in style by Yash Raj Films with the release of Pradeep Sarkar?s film 'Laaga Chunari Mein Daag' being unveiled on the 12th of October. The coming together of Yash Raj Films ? the house that has always presented women in powerful roles ? together with Pradeep Sarkar, whose sensitivity was amply demonstrated in his first film, this film should satisfy the connoisseurs and the masses alike. And with a cast of Jaya Bachchan, Rani Mukerji, Konkona Sen Sharma, Kunal Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan, it promises to be one exceptional showcase for exemplary performances.

And finally, Yash Raj Films' last offering for 2007, slated for the 30th of November may well turn out to be one of the biggest movie events of this, or indeed, any year. If the name 'Aaja Nachle' was not catchy enough, or the fact that noted cinematographer Anil Mehta is making his directorial debut, it is Madhuri Dixit's comeback film. And knowing the magic Yash Raj Films is capable of with diva comebacks (witness Kajol in 'Fanaa') and the enduring appeal of Madhuri Dixit, not to mention Anil Mehta's skilful eye, 'Aaja Nachle' will certainly end the year with a bang for Yash Raj Films. And Madhuri Dixit's comeback could become truly, the comeback of the decade!
