The film in currently in production and is slated for release in the summer of 2009. “Chandbhai” is Nikhil Advani’s second directorial venture with Warner Bros. after “Chandni Chowk to China.” Akshay Khanna and Vidya Balan star in this emotionally heartrending story of how a struggling director transforms a rebel inmate of a remand home.

The third film is “Basra,” starring Akshaye Khanna and directed by Navdeep Singh. It’s a story of how a spy and a cop’s lives intertwine in a dangerous game of espionage, betrayal and revenge. Triggering off from the deserts of Iraq, and moving through the underbelly of Mumbai’s drug and flesh trade, the film finally ends up in the powerful corridors of politics in Delhi. “Both Nikhil Advani and Mukesh Talreja are dynamic creative individuals whose vision we share. We hope to have a long and successful association with People Tree Films in the future,” says Richard Fox, Executive Vice President, Warner Bros.

Pictures India. “Each of these films belongs to a different genre. ‘Jaane Kahaa Se Aayi Hai’ is a romactic comedy, whereas ‘Basra’ is a political thriller. ‘Chandbhai’ is a film that has been close to my heart for a while now and I am glad to start this as my first project after ‘Chandni Chowk to China,’” says Nikhil Advani, partner People Tree Films. “We are proud to associate with Warner Bros. for three more films after ‘Chandni Chowk to China.’ We are looking at releasing ‘Jaane Kahaa Se Aayi Ha’ in the summer of 2009, ‘Chandbhai’ during Diwali 2009, and ‘Basra’ will hit the cinemas at the end of 2009,” says Mukesh Talreja, partner People Tree films.
