CLASSIC fairy tale and panto favourite Aladdin, gets the Bollywood treatment, with Amitabh Bachchan as Genius, the genie, Riteish Deshmukh in the title role and Sanjay Dutt as Ringmaster, both pictured.

Aladin also marks the debut of Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandes.

Directed by Sujoy Ghosh, it is the story of a boy who faces ridicule at every stage of his life because he shares his name with the protagonist of the famous fairy tale. A shy, young man, he is constantly bullied by a gang of boys in his college.

One day, through a twist of fate, the incredible Genius appears in his life and all hell breaks loose for ALADIN.

Genius insists on granting him three wishes, but the evil Ringmaster will stop at nothing to get hold of the magic lamp. This promises to be a visual extravaganza.
