Abbas: JHOOTHA HI SAHI is mature as compared to JAANE TU...

Filmmaker Abbas Tyrewala, who shot to fame with his very first film JAANE TU YA JAANE NA, is back with yet another romantic comedy, JHOOTHA HI SAHI starring John Abraham & his wife Palkhi. However, JHOOTHA HI SAHI is far mature than teenybopper lovestory JAANE TU.

Says the director, "Unlike JAANE TU the heartbreak is real in JHOOTHA HI SAHI. When heartbreak happens it actually pains. JAANE TU was little playful and childish. However in case of JHOOTHA HI SAHI there is lot of pain. It is more serious film. Though it's a rom com there is a dramatic aspect to it."



The film underwent a few name changes before settling for JHOOTHA HI SAHI. Initially it was called 1-800 LOVE, which was then changed to CALL ME DIL. "It was actually never renamed. From the kind of movie that was conceived out we had set a working title 1-800 LOVE. But eventually we realized that the whole concept of toll free number is not that popular. The idea that alphabets stand for number seemed less convincing, so we always knew that for broader Indian audience it will never work. So we locked on JHOOTHA HI SAHI. In between, one of the other titles that we were considering was CALL ME DIL, which never really happened. However, somebody leaked to the media and they decided to call it CALL ME DIL," Abbas says.

Abbas is singing praises of his actor John Abraham. He says, "JHOOTHA HI SAHI will be John's best film. The way he has performed in the film, I bet you it is by far his best in the last 5 years and another 5 years to come. And even you will experience the same once the film releases."

The Abbas Tyrewala helmed romance comedy co-stars the director's wife, Pakhi, who is also the writer of the film. Isn't it difficult to direct one's wife as writer & actor at the same time? "Well I think there is professionalism to forget the fact that she is your wife. Otherwise you won't be able to function. If you're working with somebody in a professional capacity than you have to just work like any other actor," Abbas concludes on a candid note.

JHOOTHA HI SAHI is all set to hit the screens on October 15.
