MASTI, AWARA PAAGAL DEEWANA, LOVE KE LIYE KUCH BHI KAREGA, HUNGAMA - each of these films has three factors in common: a) Aftab Shivdasani is the leading man, b) The film belongs to comedy genre and c) It has done wonders at the box office. Now sample some other movies that Aftab has done in his decade old career as a leading man - KASOOR, PYAASA, FOOTPATH, JAANE HOGA KYA, RED and SPEED. While each of these films has been a thriller, except for KASOOR, none of the remaining ones has done any wonders at the box office.

In such a scenario, it becomes quite easy to infer that Aftab, who has also been seen as a child actor in films like MR. INDIA, SHAHENSHAH, CHAALBAAZ and AWWAL NUMBER, would consider comedy as his favourite genre. Also, this genre would ensure good box office returns for him all over again. No wonder, due to these very reasons, one has good expectations from ALOO CHAAT, a romantic comedy directed by Robby Grewal.

CHECK OUT: Aamna is professional and so is any other newcomer

So how does the term ALOO CHAAT find significance in the actually narrative of the film?

''See, it's a metaphor of sorts rather than being a literal translation. You don't have to search for an actual meaning here. Since the film is based in Delhi, the name ALOO CHAAT is instantly recognizable since this is one delicacy in the North that is loved by one and all'', smiles Aftab as he looks forward to his film bringing some smiles back into Bollywood that has been reeling under flops.

He adds in a lighter vein, ''Moreover, if you really want to look beyond the symbolic factor then well there is this 'aloo chat wallah' in the film as well that this family visits quite often. Also, we have a setup of a typical orthodox Punjabi film set in Delhi so you get to see all the 'masaledaar' happenings in this household. It all boils down to the 'aloo chaat' in the life of all the inhabitants of the house.''

With Aamna Shariff and Linda Arsenio as the leading ladies opposite Aftab Shivdasani, ALOO CHAAT is all set for a 20th March release.
