Madhur Bhandarakar's much awaited directorial film DIL TOH BACCHA HAI JI (DTBHJ) is all set to release on 28th January, 2011. Produced by Madhur Bhandarkar's Bhandarkar Entertainment and Kumar Mangat Pathak's Wide Frame Pictures, DTBHJ is a romantic comedy starring Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, 3 IDIOTS fame Omi Vaidya in the male leads and Shruti Hassan, Shazahn Padamsee and Shraddha Das in the female leads. It is for the first time that realistic & hard hitting and National Award winning film maker Madhur, who is known for making out of league films, is directing a romantic comedy on the slice of life. The music is given by Pritam.
"This is the first time that I am making a slice of life romantic comedy and I hope as people loved my earlier films, they will definitely accept this movie too. The way DTBHJ is shaping up I am sure it will be a treat to watch," says the director and co-producer Madhur Bhandarkar.
With DTBHJ, Madhur Bhandarkar, for the first time explores the genre of romantic comedy within realistic parameters. It is a slice-of-life film about three men and their encounters with love. A listless Naren Ahuja (Ajay Devgn), well into his thirties and going through a divorce, falls in love with a vibrant and bubbly June Pinto (Shazahn Padamsee) who has just stepped out of her teens. Milind Kelkar (Omi Vaidya), a naive poet and an idealistic lover, is besotted by an ambitious and practical Gungun Sarkar (Shraddha Das) who is determined to follow her dreams and a charming Casanova Abhay (Emraan Hashmi), starts feeling an alien emotion called love, when he feels increasingly drawn towards Nikki (Shruti Hassan), a modern girl who knows her wants and speaks her mind.
Struggling to cope with modern women and contemporary relationships, these three men go through a fun filled roller coaster ride of emotions with its constant highs and lows that usually accompany love. But will they succeed in their quest for happiness or love? Or does destiny have different plans for them? With its real characters and relatable situations, DTBHJ, takes a humorous look at love and the extent people will go to escape or attain it.
"Madhur ji and I were in talks since quite some time to work on a film catering to romantic comedy genre and were waiting for a right script to come across, keeping the current trends in mind. Now that the film is ready and is looking very promising, we are very excited and looking forward to it," added the co-producer Kumar Mangat Pathak.
