The movie will release in April, 2011 in Malayalam, Hindi/Urdu, and Tamil but the soundtrack has been released already in February, 2011.
The movie actually sparked some international interest because of the original lead star, Pakistani cricketer and actress Veena Malik’s ex-boyfriend, Mohammad Asif. Asif was dropped from the film due to match-fixing allegations! Ouch!
Luckily Mumbai Rouge negotiated the lead role for Abbas Hasan after the controversy unveiled. Asif’s loss was Hasan’s gain, no?
