Nupur Asthana, whose debut film as a filmmaker was the 2011 flick MUJHSE FRAANDSHIP KAROGE, is gearing up for her second stint, the Ayushmann Khurrana-Sonam Kapoor starrer BEWAKOOFIYAAN, up for a release this week.
Ask her about what made choose a title like this for her film and she retorts, ''First we didn't have a title. We just had a working title. And then when my lyricist Anvita Dutt wrote the 'Bewakoofiyaan' song, we were all just so struck with it. We could relate it to our film and thought that this really personifies the characters in the film. So that is how we decided to name the film BEWAKOOFIYAAN.''
BEWAKOOFIYAAN sees actress Sonam Kapoor sport a bikini for the first time on-screen. Ask Nupur whether she had to convince Sonam to slip into the two-piece and she explains, ''I didn't have to convince Sonam to wear a bikini. In the film, I have a song where they are going to a resort and any 26-year old cosmopolitan girl today, from Mumbai/Delhi will sport a bikini with her boyfriend and friends. So she was absolutely cool about it.''
She further added, ''Of course, she was like s**t I will have to work out now and definitely worked out very hard for it. But I told her don't go very lean. We are showing a real girl and not a supermodel wearing a bikini. It is there just for seconds in a film. So yes, Sonam didn't stop eating but worked out. And so did Ayushmann Khurrana. He also had to tone up his body.''
BEWAKOOFIYAAN, directed by Nupur Asthana and produced by Yash Raj Films, releases on March 14, 2014.
