Indian Film Company keeps slate busy for 2009-10


MUMBAI: Readying an investment of Rs 1.61 billion ($32.12 million), the Raghav Bahl-driven Indian Film Company (IFC) is lining up a busy 2009-10 schedule.


Apart from the Bollywood crop, IFC’s pipeline includes remake of the Hollywood film “Italian Job” from Paramount Studios. Having acquired the rights, the film is currently in its scripting stage.


IFC has acquired the rights for Shortkut - The Con Is On and Luck that are expected to hit the theatres this July and September.


The AIM-listed company is also co-producing Loot, Striker, King Kaun, Kaun Bola, Life Partner, Road Movie, Paanch Pandav, It‘s A Wonderful Afterlife, Banda Yeh Bindass Hai and Tamil Unlimited.


Director by Neeraj Vohra, Shortkut - The Con is On will release in July and casts Akshaye Khanna, Arshad Warsi and Amrita Rao. Directed by Soham Shah, Luck, meanwhile, is scheduled for an August release and casts Sanjay Dutt, Imran Khan and Danny Denzongpa.


Life Partner will release in September this year. Both Kaun Bola and Banda Yeh Bindaas Hai will open in theatres in November.


Loot and Striker are scheduled for a March 2010 release. Also in the pipeline are 7 Days in Paris, a romantic comedy directed by Sanjay Ghadvi that casts Imran Khan and Katrina Kaif as lead protagonists. The film is expected to release in April 2010.


It‘s A Wonderful Afterlife, a co-production with director Gurinder Chadha, casts Shabana Azmi, Sendhil Ramamurthy (of Heroes fame) Shaheen Khan (Bend It Like Beckham) and British-Indian theatre actress Goldie Notay. The film is expected to hit the theatres in April 2010.


The other productions are Game, Ishq Unplugged, Fruit ‘N‘ Nut and Bombay Velvet.


Additionally, there are untitled projects with directors such as David Dhawan, Anees Bazmee, Sabal S Shekhawat, Shoham Shah, Amrit Sagar and Priyadarshan.


"We will continue to focus on distribution and exploitation of quality content that entertains audiences and gives commercial returns," IFC director and Network18 founder-promoter Raghav Bahl said. "The group has focused more on mounting its own productions in order to generate higher margins and profitability. The Group has recruited talented directors with established track records, who are working on projects in various stages of production including scripting, casting, shooting and post production."
