Kabul Express


Kabul Express is one of the three big budget movies to be released by yashrajfilms in 2006. The tagline says “Two Indians, an American, one Afghan and a Pakistani on a journey together”. Seems interesting

The film is being directed by Kabir Khan (Mini Mathur‘s husband) who has been making documentary films before he ventured in to bollywood.

The Afghan media has some coverage as well:

Arshad Warsi plays a cinematographer and John Abraham, a TV director in the thriller set in post 9/11 Afghanistan.

The anti-war film tells the story of a 48-hour car drive through the war-torn country that has witnessed tumult since the fall of the Taliban in 2001 when the fundamentalist hardliners were ousted by a US-led invasion.

The undeniable love for Bollywood in Afghanistan is evident as a large crowd of curious Afghans, mostly young, follow the “Kabul Express” unit wherever it goes for shooting.
