Film buffs are in for a treat this Christmas as choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan's highly anticipated film Tees Maar Khan, starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, hits the silver screen along with Ajay Devgn's animation film Toonpur Ka Superhero this Thursday.

Tees Maar Khan, produced by Twinkle Khanna, Shirish Kunder and Ronnie Screwvala with a budget of Rs500 million (Dh40 million), is a story about Tabrez Mirza Khan (Kumar) who steals, cons and cheats with such an audacity that none even gets the slightest hint about his deeds. His gang members include three others named Dollar, Soda and Burger.

International antique smugglers ask Tabrez to perform the biggest heist of his life — steal antiques worth millions from a heavily-guarded moving train.

The film's music is already a rage, with Kaif making fans groove to her item song Sheila Ki Jawani.

The film also stars Akshaye Khanna, Raghu Ram, Rajiv Laxman, Arya Babbar and Aman Verma. It also has special appearences by Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt.

Toonpur Ka Superhero, featuring Ajay Devgn and Kajol, would be India's first live action-animation film. It is produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak and Krishika Lulla and distributed by Eros International.

Directed by Kireet Khurana, the film tells the story of film star Aditya (Devgn) who has all the success he ever dreamt of. He is married to Priya (Kajol) and has two kids Kabeer and Raima. He might be a superstar but his children want him to be hero in real life rather than in reel.

Aditya gets one such opportunity when he finds himself in Toonpur, the land of his children's favourite cartoons, where he has to fight Toonasurs (demon toons) to save Devtoons (good toons).

While Ajay and Kajol team up for this film after two years, it also reunited the mother-daughter duo of Kajol and Tanuja 18 years after Bekhudi, which was the launch vehicle for Kajol in the film industry.
