Aamir Khan's 'Raakh' ready for re-release on 12 June

MUMBAI: The 1989 Aamir Khan starrer Raakh is being readied for re-release by Audacity International, a joint venture designed to distribute and support the release of independent cinema in India, on 12 June with 200 prints across India.

The company has been founded by director Aditya Bhattacharya and Asif Noor, the producer of the film and 12 other investors.

Raakh marked the unveiling of Aamir Khan who today is unarguably one of the biggest super stars of our times. While the film may have not been his first release, it truly marked the actor's debut as an actor.

The film was also the first time for industry bigwigs like Santosh Sivan, cinematographer extraordinaire Sreekar Prasad, musician Ranjit Barot and director Sangeeth Sivan (as an executive producer) to come together for a project.

The film also starred the husband-wife team of Pankaj Kapur and Supriya Pathak in key roles. Kapur won the National Award for best supporting actor later that year for the film.

The film also brought the National Award for best editing for Sreekar Prasad and best directorial début award for Aditya Bhattacharya from the prestigious Bengal Film Journalist's Association.

The film is now being revived and envisaged by the founders of Palador Pictures, which is behind the release strategy and restoration of the film.

"I am really happy I found Gautam Sikhnis who convinced me that now is the time to re-release the film across the country and I trust their vision," says Asif Noor now based in Dubai.
