December 01 : Anees Bazmee, who is a successful filmmaker with several hits to his credit, has three unreleased films, which despite being complete were never released. Despite the filmmaker working hard for these films, due to some reason or the other, they never saw the light of the day.
The director, who is known for his hits like Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha in 1999, No Entry in 2005, Welcome in 2007, Ready in 2011, and Singh Is Kinng in 2018, has finally released one of these three films titled It’s My Life. The 10-year-old film, which was never released despite being complete, was premiered on Zee Cinema on Sunday, November 29. Produced by Boney Kapoor and Sanjay Kapoor, the film starred Harman Baweja and Genelia Deshmukh. It was a remake of the 2006 super hit Telugu film, Bommarillu. The music of the film was by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Genelia reprised the role she had played in the Telegu film. The comedian-actor Kapil Sharma was seen in the film in a small role.
Anees Bazmee’s another unreleased film, Naam, starring Ajay Devgn, will also see the light of the day after 10 years. The thriller, which also starred Sameera Reddy and Bhumika Chawla, is all set to release. Talking to an entertainment portal, Anees Bazmee confirmed that the film may release on an OTT platform or directly on television. He also said that the suspense thriller has one of the best performances of Ajay Devgn. The filmmaker also revealed that the producer has given his nod to release Naam soon.
Naam was Anees Bazmee’s fourth collaboration with Ajay after Hulchul, Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha and Deewangee. Naam was initially titled as Benaam. The film was produced by Dinesh Patel, who had also produced Ajay’s first film Phool Aur Kaante. During the last leg of the shooting, the producer ran into some financial problems, and as a result, Naam was stalled.
Interestingly, in 2019, Anees had tweeted a behind-the-scene picture of Naam that featured Anees with Ajay, who is seen shooting for the film in Switzerland. The filmmaker had wrote that he wished that the film gets released and people get a chance to see it.
