The Yash Raj banner sure knows how to sell its movies. While Fanaa was being screened in theatres, YRF introduced two of its next bigventures -- the trailers of which had the audience asking for more. If you have seen Fanaa, you know what we're talking about.

The theatre trailers of Kabul Express and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna have just hit the screens and everyone seems to be talking about them.

Here's a sneak peek into the next two big movies of 2006.

Kabul Express

Directed by debutant Kabir Khan and produced by Aditya Chopra, this Yash Raj production stars John Abraham and Arshad Warsi. To keep them company are Linda Arsenio, Hum Ghum, Salman Shahid.


 Kabul Express is set to hit the theatres in September

Kabul Express is a thriller and an anti-war film set in post 9/11 Afghanistan, which tells the story of a 48-hour car drive in the war-ravaged country, where Arshad Warsi plays a cinematographer and John Abraham, a TV director.

'Two Indians, an American, one Afghan and a Pakistani on a journey together' screams the trailer.

While Arshad and John keep their humour about them even in the deserts of Afghanistan, the final kick comes when Arshad points and says 'Osama bin Laden'. So, is Osama really making an entry in this movie on Afghanistan? We'll have to wait and watch till September.

Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna

Another one from Dharma Productions, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna or KANK is produced and directed by Karan Johar.

With a strong star cast of Rani Mukherji, Preity Zinta, Abhishek Bachchan and of course King Khan himself, this movie is one of the most awaited flicks of 2006.

Set to hit the theatres in August, KANK is a story that explores the darker side of human relationships.

It revolves around the budding romance between Dev, played by Shahrukh Khan, and Maya, portrayed by Rani Mukherji. They are both married to different people and are pulling on with their unhappy marriages. Dev is married to Priya (Preity Zinta) and Maya is married to Rishi (Abhishek Bachchan). However, when Dev and Maya meet, they realise that they are perfect for each other and thus they begin to question the validity of their respective married lives. The film explores how the strong feelings that Dev and Maya have for each other affect not only their lives but also of those around them.

From the looks of the trailer, the movie will be a treat. If not for anything else, at least for Abhishek Bachchan -- complete with the stubble, his looks could kill anyone.

SRK, as usual, is his charming self doing what he's best at -- being emotional.

A Dharma production and no Amitabh Bachchan? Don't fret, Big B makes his entry in the trailer on a hospital bed but mouthing some meaningful lines in his trademark style.

The cast completes with Kirron Kher and Arjun Rampal in supporting roles.
