Two under production Bollywood films deal with the emotional, social repercussions on people from different walks of life in the aftermath of serial train blasts that rocked Mumbai two years ago.

Incidentally, the second anniversary of the blasts that killed 187 people and injured over 500 Mumbaikars falls on July 11.




UTV Motion Pictures' Mumbai Meri Jaan is the story about how such tragedies affect people, directly or indirectly and how they fight their way back to lead a normal life. The story is told through the eyes of a female journalist played by Soha Ali Khan .

The film directed by Nishikant Kamat, features Irrfan Khan , Paresh Rawal , Madhavan , Kay Kay Menon among others, will hit the screens on August 22.

The other film 'Ruslaan' is a story that deals with people's perception and their impact on the life of innocent bystanders. Ruslaan leaves home in a happy mood and as he boards the train, he receives a call and there are series of blasts. Ruslaan is picked up for questioning.

Producer Mukesh Sharma says that the film is fast moving towards completion and is slated for an October release.

Refusing to divulge more details, he said the film deals with the repercussion on a Muslim family in the aftermath of the blasts.

Ruslaan is played by Rajveer Sharma and the other cast includes Megha Chaterjee, Asrani, S M Zaheer, Smita Jaykar, Ganesh Yadav, Shabnam Kapoor among others.

Nishikant Kamat said that his film was not about conspiracy or investigation, but purely saluting the human spirit and its will to survive.

According to Kamat, the story idea of 'Mumbai Meri Jaan' came just a couple of weeks after the train blasts. The story is about us, the people who have always been directly or indirectly affected by such unfortunate tragedies.

"UTV and myself were already in conversation to make a film and I put across the story idea to them which they liked," he said.

He said the film focusses mainly on how such tragedies affect everybody, directly or indirectly and how we fight our way back to live a normal life.

Kamat, whose debut Marathi film 'Dombivali Fast' was a huge success and remade in Tamil last year said he chose to make 'Mumbai Meri Jaan' in Hindi because the subject suited the language.

"The canvass of the film is much bigger than Dombivali Fast, though the genre is quite similar," he said.
