Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam-starrer Kaabil is set to be dubbed in Telugu with the title Balam. The first look poster and trailer for the Telugu version will be out on Diwali. The film is set for a grand release on January 26 clashing with Shah Rukh Khan’s next, Raees. The Hindi trailer was out on Tuesday.
The film is produced by Rakesh Roshan under his banner FilmKraft Productions and directed by Sanjay Gupta. After successful hits including Krrish, Krrish 3, Koi Mil Gaya and Kaho Na Pyar Hai, the Roshan duo are trying to make another blockbuster, especially after Hrithik’s last outing with Ashutosh Gowariker, Mohenjo Daro, couldn’t get numbers.
Many Bollywood flicks starring Hrithik, including Dhoom 2 and Krrish, had a big release because of his immense fan base in the two Telugu speaking states.
Kaabil is a drama thriller written by Vijay Mishra. Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam are playing the lead roles. Both the actors are visually impaired in the movie.
“My character is different from what I have done. Hrithik and I are playing blind people in the film. It required a certain kind of homework. It is challenging not just for the actors but also for the director and the rest of the crew. But everyone is so much into their zone and they know exactly what they want. I think everybody is working really hard to rise above the script,” Yami Gautami had said earlier in an interview, sharing her excitement.
Ronit Roy, Rohit Roy and Girish Kulkarni will be also playing supporting roles in the film.
Urvashi Rautela is making a special appearance in a song. Rajesh Roshan is rendering music for songs and background score of Kaabil and its Telugu version, while Sudeep Chatterjee will handle the cinematography.
