National Award-winning director Kabir Khan's film New York will be Yash Raj Film's first release of 2009.
Kabir Khan's previous venture Kabul Express was critically acclaimed worldwide and he hopes to repeat his success with New York.
The film's star cast includes John Abraham, Katrina Kaif, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Irrfan Khan.
The film, a contemporary story of three young friends whose lives are turned upside down by certain events that were beyond their control, is set against the larger than life backdrop of the Big Apple.
The film's first look is set to be revealed along with the December 12 release of Yash Raj's Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
