Mumbai: Mahesh Bhatt`s forthcoming
thriller `Murder 2` is all set to have a special audience
on Saturday when five Pakistani sailors rescued from Somalian
pirates, will watch the movie.

Bhatt has arranged a special screening of the movie
for the "guests" in Film City here.

The young sailors have been staying in South Mumbai`s
Yellow Gate police station area since March after being
rescued by Indian Navy in the high sea.

"I will be arranging a special screening of `Murder 2`
in the Film City tomorrow for the guests from across the
border. I think they will cherish the memories of their stay
in the dream city when they return to their country. I want
them to take back sweet memories from here," Bhatt, producer
for the film, said today.

`Murder 2`, starring Emraan Hashmi and Jacqueline
Fernandez, is scheduled for release on July 8.

Besides the sailors, Bhatt, the film`s director Mohit
Suri, writer Shagufta Rafique and Hashmi will attend the
special screening. "We all will sit next to the five and watch
the movie," Bhatt said.

The ordeal of the five, Aurangzeb Nabi Bakhsh Balloch
(24), his younger brother Sajjad Ali (19), Lal Bakhsh Murid
Khan (20), Farhad Aalam Khan (24) and Mohammed Umair (18) -
all employed on fishing trawler `Al-Murtuza` - started in
December last year when Somalian pirates hijacked their vessel
and imprisoned the 18 crew members.

Later, they were rescued by Indian Navy, which handed
them over to the Yellow Gate police. Yesterday, an Assistant
Consular officer from the Pakistan High Commission visited
them and assured they will be taken home back in a day or two.
