A Star Is Killed: Coming on 25th June 2012!

Published by at 7:08 pm under A * Is Killed

It was exactly six months back when Himesh Reshammiya’s international film A * Is Killed (where * stands for STAR) was announced. Though the makers hadn’t chosen to make a statement on record, those who had a dekko at the film’s First Look were convinced that the film was based on the murder of Michael Jackson.

Well, now it could well be time for the whole world to be convinced of the same since the makers of the film (producers Arifilms and director Christophe Lenoir) have declared their plans to bring A * Is Killed on the 25th June 2012, the day which marks the third death anniversary of Michael Jackson.

Confirms a source close to the film, “Yes, the film is all set to release on June 25 next year. The makers felt that it was just an apt release timing for the film which tells the story of an Indian musician (Sidharth Patel – played by Himesh Reshammiya) who is mesmerized by a superstar who gets killed.”

Though the makers continue to be tight lipped about the identity of the superstar, it doesn’t take rocket science to establish the fact that it is Michael Jackson’s story which is being told. Moreover the teaser, which is currently available online, has a few shots from the film interspersed with quotes/snippets from friends, supporters and family members of the killed superstar, all of whom are expressing a sense of disbelief that the man is not amidst them any more.

A * Is Killed is said to be taking on from this point on and seemingly unfolds truth behind this murder. The film also stars celebrity blogger Perez Hilton who was very close to Michael Jackson in real life.

The announcement of A * Is Killed is also special for Himesh since it comes in the wake of Damadamm turning out to be one of the better received films of the composer/singer turned actor. While the film managed a sustained run for itself over the weekend, even on Monday it saw a mere 10% drop in collections when compared to it’s opening Thursday with Rs. 45 lakhs more coming in.

Says a source, “Guess Himesh is now even surer about his acting career, with Damadamm fighting it out despite Ra.One in fray, A * Is Killed also confirming it’s arrival plans and a co-production with Akshay Kumar (Khiladi 786 – Made In Punjab) where he would also be sharing screen space with the actor, Himesh has pretty much declared that acting would stay on to be his love for quite some time.”
