The corporatisation of Bollywood is a recent phenomenon but there have been two production houses that had already imbibed the culture long back. We are obviously referring to Yash Raj Films and Dharma Productions, who have more or less stuck to their shooting, pre & post-production and release schedules.
While the next three releases from Yash Raj Films, BACHNA AE HASEENO, ROADSIDE ROMEO and RAB NE BANA DI JODI already have their release dates announced, not much is known about the release schedule of Dharma Productions' most awaited project, Karan Johar's next directorial venture, MY NAME IS KHAN. However Johar's upcoming Mansukhani directed Abhishek, John and Priyanka starrer DOSTANA already has an announced release date of November 14.
So what is the schedule for the biggest project from Dharma Productions, featuring the winning pair of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol? Well, the good news for the eager fans of SRK-Kajol is that the pre-production is over and MY NAME IS KHAN is all set to take off next month end or early October in US. Dharma Productions have also gone ahead and given November 2009 as the tentative release date.
