By Glamsham Editorial

'Aayenge toh Garmi Badhayege' - The tagline of Fox Star Studios' next BULLETT RAJA, directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia fits well for the production and distribution house, as it gets set to roll out as many as 28 films, that's more than 1 every 2 weeks, across Hindi, English and Tamil, the highest ever for any studio in India. With as many as 9 Hindi films , 4 Tamil films and 15 English Films slated for release in 2014, the studio is looking at its busiest year ever since its inception in 2008.

Speaking about the Hindi line-up that includes mega productions, massy entertainers and clutter breaking films, Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios' says, "In doing so, the studio is making a strong statement about scaling up and becoming a key player in the Hindi film industry as also working with diverse talent cutting across genres!" Among others, the Bollywood titles will feature A-listers like, Hrithik Roshan, Saif Ali Khan, Ranbir Kapoor, Emraan Hashmi, Arjun Kapoor and leading ladies Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma and Vidya Balan.

Be it the strengthening of old partnerships- a 3 film deal with Vishesh films (on the back of RAAZ 3, JANNAT 2 and MURDER 3's success), Amole Gupte's HAWAA HAWAAI (post STANLEY KA DABBA's critical and commercial success) or forging of new alliances with Pooja Entertainment and Films Ltd, Phantom Films, Illuminati Films and Endemol India, Fox Star Studios is knitting its alliances factoring in the individual strengths of these leading film makers and production houses. "Our partnership with Vishesh films and others is a testimony to the fact that FSS has used its strength in creative, distribution and marketing, in sustaining lasting partnerships and creating new ones in the industry since its inception in 2008."

In Tamil, the studio will lead with its partnership with CV Kumar's THIRUKUMARAN Entertainment with two films- V. Chitram and Mundasupatti and CUKKOO with Next Big Films. The studio is also partnering with Atlee Kumar once more. Atlee, recently delivered a breakaway hit for Fox Star Studios- AR Murugadoss with his debut film RAJA RANI.
