Though MERE BAAP PEHLE AAP was started and completed without much hype but now as the film is readying for its release this June, its promotion has kick started. While most films tom-tom about everything from pre-production to shooting tid-bits to any trivial thing related to the making of the film but the comedy king director Priyadarshan works in his style. According to him if too much is known about the film in advance than it looses its charm once it hits the screens. Priyadarshan has always given quality cinema. Coming back to the film, MERE BAAP PEHLE AAP assures that it will be appreciated by lovers of good quality comic fares. Some of the greatest acting talents of the industry have joined hands in the movie with the likes of Paresh Rawal, Akshaye Khanna, Rajpal Yadav, Om Puri, Genelia D'Souza, Shobhna, Archana Pooran Singh and Naseeruddin Shah (in a very special guest appearance). Shemaroo Films' MERE BAAP PAHLE AAP was shot in Goa, Kerala, Chennai and Mumbai. After HULCHUL, Vidyasagar has once again composed the melodious music for MBPA and the lyrics are penned by Sameer. Producer Raman Maroo's much waited MERE BAAP PEHLE AAP will hit the screens on 13th June 2008.
Janaradhan Wishvanbhar Rane (Paresh Rawal) a widower has spent his life bringing up his two kids Chirag (Manoj Joshi) and Gaurav (Akshaye Khanna). Janaradhan has done everything for their kids to bring them up in the best possible manner, ever since they were toddlers. Now when the duos have grown up; Gaurav takes up responsibility of his father. They both manage the household chores and their business with best of their abilities. Though he is the younger son, he treats his father like his son. Gaurav is on the guard with the vigilance of a disciplined parent. He shouts, threatens, and fights - even locks up his father occasionally so that his prankster best friend Madhav Mathur (Om Puri) who is a divorcee, desperate to get married, does not spoil him.
Madhav and Janaradhan who are always in search of bride for Madhav forever land up in trouble and every time Gaurav has to bail them out and face the embarrassment.
Gaurav busy managing his business starts getting prank calls from a girl who turns out to be his old college friend Sheekha Kapoor (Genelia D'souza). Sheekha is staying with her guardian Anuradha (Shobana) who is also Paresh's first love.

Gaurav and Sheekha embark upon a rib-tickling journey to arrange his father's love marriage and in the process find soul mates in each other. Of course, the path is not so smooth: there are obstacles. But then, Madhav's desperate desire for a bride comes handy. How this trio tries to arrange Janaradhan's and Anuradha's love marriage is a fun ride to watch.
So stay tuned for 13th June to tickle your funny bones again with Priyadarshan.
