While the first month of 2011 turned out to be a golden one for Bollywood last year with hit films like No One Killed Jessica and Yamla Pagla Deewana, the much-awaited film this January is Abbas-Mustan’s Players. And it’s all about ‘gold’. Let’s find out what the action-thriller, releasing on January 6, is all about…
Abhishek Bachchan as Charlie
Charlie Masceranhas is a Chartered Accountant by day and a master-thief by night; he has his own set of rules by which he plays the game – one of them being – ‘it’s only cops who retire, not con-artists’.
Bipasha Basu as Riya
The sexy-as-hell Riya is known to charm her way into the lusty hearts and then the safety vaults of rich and famous men. Besides being a full-time con artist, Riya is also an automobile expert.
Sonam Kapoor as Naina
Naina is the beautiful girl who did everything right with her academic life, and it is only for a very personal reason that she decides to be a part of the big heist in Players.
Bobby Deol as Ronnie
Ronnie was the master of illusions. At one point of time, he was one of the most famous illusionists in the country but he abruptly left his career at his peak.
In fact, he hates the very word ‘magic’ now. But then, he agreed to be a ‘Player’ for reasons that he would not share with the group.
Neil Nitin Mukesh as Spider
Spider is the quintessential computer geek, a master-hacker who robbed millions from banks and has been on the most-wanted list of several cyber crime prevention agencies worldwide.
Omi Vaidya as Sunny
Sunny has a mad passion to be a Bollywood star. But when every producer in town rejected his face, Sunny decided to be an expert at ‘changing faces’. Yup, he became a prosthetic expert. And from what we hear, he is bloody good at it.
Sikander Kher as Bilal
Having worked with several secret service agencies, Bilal has solid contacts all over the world and can speak several languages with the fluency of a local.
