Blue is a 2009 Bollywood underwater action thriller film directed by Anthony D'Souza, and written by American writers Joshua Lurie and Bryan M. Sullivan. The film stars Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Zayed Khan and Lara Dutta in lead roles, whilst Katrina Kaif stars in a cameo appearance. Kylie Minogue appears in a musical number in the film. Blue released on October 16 2009, and received negative response from critics. At the time of release, it broke the record for the most expensive Bollywood film ever produced. Loosely based on the Hollywood film Into the Blue (2005), Blue failed to recover its high budget from the box office.
