GALI GALI CHOR HAI is up for release and Rumi Jaffery, the filmmaker who has directed the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Govinda and Priyanka Chopra in films like GOD TUSSI GREAT HO and LIFE PARTNER, can be heard singing praises about Akshaye Khanna who, as per the director, was always his first choice to play Bharat.

''Believe me, when I started this script I could only think of Akshaye. He is a very good actor and the kind of expressions he gives undoubtedly makes him a kind of common man that you would see in Bhopal or Bareilly or a Bikaner'', he says, ''God is really great because you may have an ideal cast in your mind but it may not necessarily work out like that. In case of GALI GALI CHOR HAI, whomsoever did I think of is there in the film, right from the leads to the supporting actors. I faced no issues on the dates or the price either. We went as per the plan.''

Well, plans of GALI GALI CHOR HAI indeed seems to be falling in place, what with Anna blessing the film quite recently and then the topic of corruption continuing to be alive amongst 'aam junta'.

''See, we hadn't intentionally planned the film to coincide with Anna movement. It just happened that Anna became a national hero while our film was also completed around the same time'', says Rumi, ''We had worked on the script a couple of years back and after that it was god who helped us find a way. We have made the film with a lot of heart and hope that it starts yet another movement across the country.''

With Shreya Saran and Mugdha Godse as the leading ladies, GALI GALI CHOR HAI releases tomorrow.
