DIL TO BACHCHA HAI JI would feature Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi and Omi Vaidya ('Chatur' of 3 IDIOTS fame) and in no time, the casting has created a stir of sorts in the industry since it is as unique as it gets, especially for a film which comes from the house of Bhandarkar. Moreover, this is the first time ever that the film maker is attempting a feel good romcom entertainer.
"I know", smiles Bhandarkar whose last release was Neil Nitin Mukesh starrer JAIL, "I have been known for making hard hitting, real and controversial films. However, I always wanted to make a light film like DIL TO BACHCHA HAI JI as well. This is a story of three guys though there would be a definite place for 3-4 girls as well. Their names would be announced in due course of time."
The film goes on floors this July and the shooting would be wrapped up by September. Soon after that, Bhandarkar would head straight into Kareena Kapoor starrer HEROINE which would go on floors in November. HEROINE is expected to follow Bhandarkar template of film making and is expected to be a hard hitting affair again.
"Till that happens, it is going to be DIL TO BACHCHA HAI JI for me", smiles Bhandarkar, "I know that making a film like this is akin to me exploring an un-chartered territory. However, comedy isn't something new to me after all. Even in my so called serious films, there are sections here and there in the narrative where comic moments do come in."
