Abbas-Mustan’s Players will hit the silver screen this Friday, and along with it, audiences will get to watch the trailer of producer Ratan Jain’s upcoming action-thriller, Tezz.
Tezz is directed by Priyadarshan and produced by Ratan Jain. The film stars Ajay Devgn, Mohanlal, Anil Kapoor, Kangna Ranaut and Sameera Reddy. It also releases on March 23, 2012.
Interestingly, while Players stars Sonam Kapoor, Priyadarshan’s film will see her father Anil Kapoor in an action-oriented role alongside Ajay Devgn.
“It’s a happy co-incidence. What else can I say?” says Jain, adding, “It’s the right time for us to come out with the trailer. Since we always wanted to release it in 2012, and Players is the year’s first release, we are going ahead with it.”
Jain hopes the trailer will put all speculations about the film’s final release date to rest. “It is going to hit theatres on April 27,” he says, admitting that the film is running a bit late.
He adds, “We have taken an extra six months to complete the film because of the VFX work involved. Then Ajay started shooting for Son Of Sardar and had to grow his beard for that role. So, we had to wait for him to wrap that up to complete our patchwork. It’s not complete yet, but whatever I’ve seen has been satisfying. And I have two great actors,” says Jain.
Saif can relax!
For some time now, talks were rife about Tezz clashing with Saif Ali Khan’s long-delayed home production Agent Vinod, which is now scheduled to release on March 23. But both sides can heave sigh of relief.
“Agent Vinod was set to release in February 2012. Later, they shifted it to March. But now, there is no clash because Tezz is coming in April,” says Jain.
