Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions has blocked dates for releases of its three films Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Gippi and Ungli.

The first release will be children’s film Gippi. Directed by debutante Sonam Nair. It will come out April 5, and marks the production house’s first association with a female director. Riya Vij, 13, is likely to play the lead role in Gippi.

It will be followed by much awaited Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone starrer Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, scheduled for May 31 release. Directed by Ayan Mukerji of Wake Up Sid fame, the movie is creating buzz as it brings real life ex-lovers Ranbir and Deepika together on the silver screen after 2008 movie Bachna Ae Haseeno. The movie also stars Kalki Koechlin.

Dharma’s third release will be Rensil D’Silva-directed Ungli. The film, which will release on September 6, stars Emraan Hashmi and Randeep Hooda.
