Picture perfect: Percept Picture Company to roll out 22 movie titles by 2008

Percept Picture Company (PPC) is on a roll. After the launch of five Hindi movie titles, the company has plans to release 22 more movie titles by 2008. Of these, four films are ready for release, while nine more films are in the pre-production stage and ready to go on floor by month-end.

The latest offering from PPC was 'Deadline' starring Irrfan Khan. Those in line for release include '50 Lac', 'Mp3' and 'Traffic Signal'.

Mahesh Ramanathan, COO, Percept Picture Company, said, "We are in the forefront of the entertainment revolution in India. It has been our constant endeavour to churn out films which connect with the masses and entertain them at the same time."

"All our films have always been a blend of excellent story telling with powerful narrative, even our film making associations have been with great talents in the industry. We wish to continue and sustain this momentum and take it to a different level in the near future," he further said.

The films which are going on floor immediately include Priyadarshan's 'Dhol' in mid-November 2006, Shoojit Sircar's 'Johnny Walker' with starring Amitabh Bachchan in April 2007, followed by Nagesh Kukunoor's 'Tasveer' starring Akshay Kumar in May 2007.

After 'Dor', PPC has joined hands with Kukunoor again for his film 'Aaashayein' starring John Abraham, which is slated to release by the end of 2007. PPC will be back with the sequel of animated film 'Hanuman', which will be released in November 2007. Another PPC project is with David Dhawan and Aneez Bazmee, whose films will also be released by the end of 2007. PPC will also be coming up with a sequel of 'Malamal Weekly'.
