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.
