Mumbai: Fox Star Studios will release Abhishek Bachchan starrer `Dum Maro Dum` on the eve of the actor`s birthday next year on February 4.
"The film is shaping up very well and the audiences should get ready to enjoy a gripping, moving film with great visual appeal, coming their way on 4th February," said producer Ramesh Sippy.
"`Dum Maaro Dum` has a great script, it is vibrant and contemporary and we expect the film to appeal to a wide audience," says Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios.
The February timing is perfect as it is strategically timed just before the cricket World Cup. The window of late January and early February works for us also as we are familiar with the release environment during that period, he said.
`Dum Maaro Dum` will be Fox Star Studio`s third release in the same period as it released `Slumdog Millionaire` in 2009 and `My Name is Khan` in 2010 during the period of late January and early February. Coincidentally, February 5 happens to be the birthday of Abhishek Bachchan, who plays the role of a fearless cop in the film.
`Dum Maaro Dum` is co-produced by Fox Star Studio and Ramesh Sippy Entertainment and stars Abhishek Bachchan, Bipasha Basu, Rana Daggubati, Prateik Babbar and Aditya Panscholi.
