If everything goes as planned, director-duo Abbas-Mustan will foray into film production by mid-2008. One of the films will bring Akshay Kumar and Akshaye Khanna together. The others will topline Shah Rukh Khan.

News is that the Abbas-Mustan have already had separate meetings with the Akshay(e)s about doing a movie for their banner - the Burmawalla Brothers' Movies. The actors have agreed verbally.

The Baazigar directors last worked with Shah Rukh Khan for Badshah. Now, they have narrowed down on a couple of subjects for SRK.

On being contacted, Abbas said, "Right now, we're too occupied with the post-production of Race (directed for the Tips banner). Of course, we have short-listed some of ideas we would like to do after Race."

Our source confirms the production plans of the director duo, adding that they will stick to the genre they excel in - musical thrillers.
