After making a thriller (SAMAY) and a teenage romantic comedy (MP3 - MERA PEHLA PEHLA PYAAR), filmmaker Robby Grewal returns with ALOO CHAAT, a youth romantic entertainer. Set in Delhi, this Aftab Shivdasani-Aamna Shariff film promises to bring with it ton loads of entertainment. Since the film is based in Delhi, one wonders if the city first came or the script?

''It wasn't a conscious decision to make something in Delhi; may be subconsciously yes'', says Robby Grewal who is himself Delhi based, ''You do tend to get comfortable with a milieu of something that you are familiar with. It becomes so much more comprehensive if you are centering a film in a setting that you are familiar with.''

He agrees that from research standpoint, making ALOO CHAAT was much easier affair. ''It's like if I had to base my film in a Muslim or a Kashmir setting, I would have had to do quite some research to understand the language, mannerism, cultural aspect etc. Being a Punjabi, it wasn't much of a pain to base my characters too as Punjabis.''

Revealing that he has been brought up in a hardcore Punjabi household, Robby adds, ''You do get an exposure to the culture the moment you get up in the morning. The dialect and the thinking - everything comes to you naturally; something that you realize once you start filming your movie. For example, the grand mother shown in ALOO CHAAT is just the same as my own. Even lots of other characters have been pretty much picked up from real life people around me. All of it is something real; something that I have seen over the years.''

Also starring Linda Arsenio, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Sanjay Mishra and Manoj Pahwa in pivotal roles, ALOO CHAAT is all set to release on 13th March.
