Love is eternal and I have seen so many Bollywood films reinstating this belief time and again. And like they say, love has no age, I am very excited to see a heartwarming story called Jab Khuli Kitaab presented by Applause Entertainment in association with Shoe Strap Films. Starring Pankaj Kapur and Dimple Kapadia in lead roles and Aparshakti Khurana, Sameer Soni, and Nauheed Cyrusi the romantic comedy is one charming tale. The film will be helmed by Saurabh Shukla.
What is amazing about the film is that it has been adapted from one of Saurabh's play. It is a timeless love story of an old couple seeking divorce after being together for 50 years. This tale dealing with dysfunctional relationships is surely going to strike a chord with many.
Talking about the same, Sameer Nair, CEO of Applause Entertainment says,
JAB KHULI KITAAB has an endearing, exciting idea at its core, which completely sets it apart from other romances. This film disrupts the usual tropes and reflects how love at any age can turn into a messy and inflammable affair. The script is sharp, observant, and hilarious in equal measure, complemented by our wonderful ensemble of actors, led by the remarkable Pankaj Kapur and Dimple Kapadia. We are delighted to be collaborating with Saurabh Shukla and Shoe Strap Films for this truly special film.
Talking about the film, director Saurabh Shukla says,
JAB KHULI KITAAB is very close to my heart and I'm thrilled to have stalwarts like Pankaj Kapur and Dimple Kapadia as my leads. We all say that one should be transparent and clean in any relationship but how many of us are open to facing the truth in our own relationships? The film is a rom-com with a couple in their 70s. You see them doing what any teenager will do in their relationships. The film is a joyride where you laugh, fall in love, and cry with this unique couple. I’m thankful to Sameer Nair for supporting me and making this happen.
The shooting for the film has been completed in Ranikhet and I am totally looking forward to witnessing this heartwarming story.
