2008 has been an excellent year for UTV. They battled all the storms and still saw JODHAA AKBAR turning out to be a bumper success. On the other hand RACE (which was acquired by them) was a winner from Day One with the opening falling short only of all time blockbuster OM SHANTI OM.

With two huge successes in the first quarter of 2008, UTV is indeed ecstatic and is now gearing up for the release of their third film - AAMIR. A UTV SPOTBOY film which has numero uno TV star Rajeev Khandelwal heading the film's cast, AAMIR is a thriller directed by first time film maker Rajkumar Gupta. In the film, Rajeev plays the central protagonist 'Aamir', a self made lower middle class young man who rises to be a doctor in the city of London.

On his visit to Mumbai, he gets lost in a maze of Muslim dominated poor areas of the city, its lanes and by lanes, cheap restaurants and lodges, nameless pimps and whores, run-down buildings and over-crowded markets, filth and squalor!

This is when he faces the question around whether a man chooses his destiny or the destiny chooses a man. And the decision he is required to taken sooner or later is - whether he should continue to be a follower or stand up as a leader.

A Ronnie Screwvala production, the film is all set for a 23rd May release.
