Blue, the most expensive movie in Bollywood heading for an August release

Blue starring Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Lara Dutt, Katrina Kaif and Zayed Khan, is supposed to be the most expensive movie in Bollywood. With a budget exceeding Rs.100 crores, Blue is heading for an August release. The sensational Australian signer with a pretty face and a knock out butt, Kylie Minogue will be singing for a number in the film. The music of Blue is composed by the best music composer in the world presently,A.R.Rahman. Kylie Minogue will also be playing a small role in Blue.

90 percent of Blue has been shot under water. There are also reports that Blue is inspired from the 1997 Hollywood film, The Deep, directed by Peter Yates. Blue is directed by one-tme ad film maker Anthony D'Souza, who has debuted in the film as a director. What is Blue all about? Well, Blue is about a group of people who are looking for a treasure in the deep sea. They meet with obstacles like sharks while going for the kill.

While shooting for Blue, Akshay Kumar was actually hit by sharp object in the sea and his forehead was bleeding profusely. Since sharks could smell blood from afar, his life was in danger. The lifeguards and scuba divers saved Akshay Kumar in time and brought him to the shore. All the actors in Blue had to learn deep sea diving and jump more than 100 feet deep into the sea.

"I didn't know deep sea diving and had to train for six months before joining the team of Blue," Lara said. "But I got the biggest fright when I was told to jump into the sea without an oxygen mask. Thankfully, everything went well." Katrina Kaif who has reportedly done the costliest item number in Blue has even had her role extended in Blue. She will be paired opposite Zayed Khan.

Blue, the movie with many firsts to its credit, is also the first movie to be shot in Bahamas. Akshay Kumar who had a debacle in Chandni Chowk to China will be looking forward to Blue, apart from other movies like 8x10 Tasveer, Action Replay and Kambakkht Ishq. Akshay Kumar who will be rubbing shoulders with Kylie Minogue in Blue, will be seen acting opposite Hollywood stars like Sylvester Stallone, Denise Richardsand Brandon Routh in Kambakkht Ishq. The only problem with Blue is how the costs will be recovered because it made on a very expensive scale. The producers are finding it difficult to get distributors for the film becasue of the huge cost involved in recessional times.
