Warner readies new Bollywood film

Comedy is set for release Sept. 12

NEW DELHI -- Warner Bros. Pictures India's second Bollywood co-production, Shona Urvashi's "Saas Bahu Aur Sensex" ("Mother-in-law, Daughter-in-law and the Stock Market Index") will be ready for release Sept. 12. The comedy, which is in postproduction, is co-produced with Mumbai-based banner PLA Entertainment.

WBPI forayed into local productions here in August with "Chandni Chowk to China," a co-production with filmmaker Ramesh Sippy and starring Akshay Kumar.

Last week, WBPI announced a multipicture, co-production pact for South Indian films with Chennai-based banner Ocher Films.

The comedy stars relatively new talent such as actresses Tanushree Dutta and Masumeh Makhija, along with newcomer Ankur Khanna and veterans Kirron Kher and Farooq Shaikh.
Warner Bros India did not provide budget figures for "Sensex."
