Ashutosh Gowariker is perfection personified and may be it's his inherent quality and stickler for details trait that both his period films, LAGAAN and JODHAA AKBAR, were well over three hours. But it appears that Ashutosh has got tired of making lengthy films and so the case with his latest project, KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SEY, will not be the same as LAGAAN and JODHAA AKBAR where it comes to the duration of the film.
We have news from reliable sources that the Abhishek Bachchan-Deepika Padukone starrer, despite being a lavish period film, will not be a 3 hour saga. The duration of the film will be of about two hours. The film is not exactly a historical love saga and is more of a thriller and hence keeping in mind the need for holding the interest of the audience intact, it was agreed upon that KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SEY will be of about two hours.
Lead actress Deepika Padukone had revealed earlier that KHJJS is not the typical period film that the audience is used to but a thriller that is simply set in the year 1903. And so the look and feel of the film is of a bygone era but the tense drama and edge of the seat thrill is pretty much the same as in all thrillers.
However to watch the much awaited KHELEN HUM JEE JAAN SEY one has to wait till December, as that is when the film is expected to release!
