Besides being a happy and super exited father to a newborn baby, Abhishek Bachchan is busy doings films too. Yes his upcoming film Players is all set to release pretty soon. Based on the Hollywood flick ‘The Italian Job’ the Director duo Abbas – Mastan’s next film is named ‘Players’. It’s a multi star cast film and a lot of anticipations rest on the same. The film will be an action thriller which is the director duo’s forte. The story is based entirely on the 2003 American film ‘The Italian Job’ and the director duo tries to use the same kind of techniques and styles as the Hollywoodflick has in it. But the desi touch is what makes the film worth watching for once if not more. Shot in the beautiful backgrounds of New Zealand, Russia and of course India the movie had a pretty long schedule since November 2010. The film was supposed to be released on the 9th of December 2011 with Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl but now it has been pushed to January 6th 2012, making it the very first release of the year 2012. The music in Players has been composed by Pritam, and it just had its official music release a couple of days back. There are a total of 10 tracks including the remixed versions. Though the title track seems to a bit catchy the other tracks seem to have left almost no mark on the market. The film was initially supposed to feature Kangna Ranaut and Priyanka Chopra as the female lead but they were subsequently replaced by Sonam Kapoor and Bipasha Basu. There were rumors about Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor and Deepika Padukone was also being considered for the female lead roles. With release dates closing in time will tell how the audience reacts to this film. Hoping that Abhishek will be able to deliver a hit this time, may his baby lady luck help him.
