Multi-star extravaganza



All the distributors in South India requested Yashraj Films to postpone the release of its multi-starrer “Jhoom Barabar Jhoom” (JBJ), as they did not want it to clash with the release of the biggest movie in the southern region, Rajnikanth’s “Sivaji, The Boss.” But Yashraj, India’s leading production house, refused to budge, so this week “JBJ”, featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Bobby Deol, Abhishek Bachchan, Preity Zinta and Lara Dutta, will clash with “Sivaji” all over the South, especially in Hyderabad and Bangalore. “JBJ” is said to be a romantic musical, directed by Shaad Ali. It has music by Shankar-Ehassan-Loy. For the Bachchans, “JBJ’ is crucial, as it is Abhishek’s first release after his marriage.
