Ghajini remake updates

With over 50 per cent of the film having been completed and three songs shot, the director can't seem to hide his excitement about the manner in which the film is taking shape.

The director has, in a fairly short span, worked with top heroes in Tamil and Telugu such as Vijayakanth, Suriya, Chiranjeevi and now in Hindi with Aamir Khan. He is easily among the more accessible directors in the industry.

Music director A. R. Rahman's music for the Hindi version of 'Gajini' has come out really well, he says.

"I am truly amazed at Aamir Khan's dedication. His passion comes across evidently. You know he's thoroughly enjoying himself while at work," the director says.

Another news which is going around is that Aamir Khan may not be the only top star wooing the audience during the bountiful weekend. News is that Akshay 'Khiladi' Kumar, whose movies have become a constant feature during the 'Eid' period, is likely to give him company. The series of Akki films that released during the 'Eid' period goes something like this- AITRAAZ (2004), GARAM MASALA (2005), JAAN-E-MANN (2006) and BHOOL BHULAIYAA (2007). The current year is likely to see Akshay's action extravaganza CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA (with hot new sensation Deepika Padukone), release during the festive occasion.

The film has already raised expectations of movie buffs due to several reasons. For Aamir Khan, this film follows his mega hit — the critically-acclaimed 'Taare Zameen Par.' Fans would also be more than eager to listen to Rahman's music after listening to his compositions for 'Jodhaa Akbar.' For Murugadoss, too, this project follows Telugu film 'Stalin' starring Chiranjeevi.Some scenes are said to have been modified and visually enhanced in the remake, which is expected to hit the cinemas in October.
