Cast and crew of ‘Tees Maar Khan’ take to the railway
BOLLYWOOD superstars, Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, launched the music soundtrack of their highly anticipated forthcoming release, Farah Khan’s ‘Tees Maar Khan’, in a spectacular way – on a moving train!
The ‘Tees Maar Khan’ cast and crew booked an entire train to promote the soundtrack, in line with the theme of the film.
It was a grand way to promote the forthcoming festive season blockbuster, based on the character ‘Tees Maar Khan’ who launches his biggest heist yet – a mastermind plan to rob 500 crore rupees from a heavily guarded, moving train.
Much loved filmmaker Farah Khan, who directed Box Office hits ‘Main Hoon Naa’ and ‘Om Shanti Om’, took a unique approach in creating an extravagant masterpiece for the film’s music launch.
“It’s an important film for us and I wanted to do something out-of-the-box,” she said. The train was wonderfully decorated with posters of the film in the carriages and even featured a red carpet to make the media and all those involved feel like they were on the set of a film premiere.
The 2 hour 15 minute journey was filled with non-stop entertainment, with composer duo Vishal Shekhar and lyricist Anvita Dutt Gupta performing live whilst Akshay, dressed in character, and Katrina greeted the media.
It was a special moment for Akshay – telling journalists it was the first time he had travelled on a train in almost 24 years! almost 24 years!”
On working with Akshay, Farah expressed her fondness for the superstar saying: “He is so adorable, he is so handsome, and he comes to shoot on time. No one but him could have done this role.”
‘Tees Maar Khan’ releases in cinemas across UK on 24th December 2010.
