As if anticipation for Dharma Production’s Wake Up Sid , starring Konkona Sen Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor, wasn’t high enough, Karan Johar has announced that the trailer for Kurbaan will be releasing with the film on October 2nd!
Karan, on his twitter feed @KJohar25, said, “the first promo of KURBAAN will be out with WAKE UP SID on the 2nd of Oct…am really excited about both films…”
Originally referred to as Jihad in the press, Kurbaan stars Kareena Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, and Vivek Oberoi and is directed by Rensil D’Silva. With Saif and Kareena each having a big hit to their names already this year, Kambakkht Ishq for Kareena and Love Aaj Kal for Saif, expectations are riding high for their performances in Kurbaan, which are rumored to include some steamy love-making sequences.
And the completed trailer is not the only good news for Kurbaan, the matter of the unpaid bills left behind by the production from their shoot in Philadelphia should be resolved in the near future. Back in March, the Philadelphia Daily News reported that Kurbaan had left behind $500,000 worth of unpaid checks. The trouble was traced to an Australian company called Swish Group, which has had all of its holdings placed in voluntary administration this past week, with a creditors meeting to be held on Monday. Dharma Productions is also considering filing a lawsuit against the Swish Group to recover lost funds.
Kurbaan is scheduled for release at the end of November. Be sure and watch this space for more because we have an exclusive interview with Rensil D’Silva, director of Kurbaan!
