Exactly a year after AJAB GAZABB LOVE (October 2012), Jackky Bhagnani has kick-started a new film of his this month. Titled YOUNGISTAAN, the film marks the directorial debut of Syed Ahmad Afzal. As the title suggested, it is a youth entertainer with romance as an integral part of the narrative. The film is currently being shot in Japan.

“Bhagnanis wanted to wait for a while before announcing a new film. Though Priyadarshan’s RANGREZZ featuring Jackky released earlier this year, it was a film that Jackky had signed alongside AJAB GAZABB LOVE. After the release of these two films, father-producer Vashu Bhagnani kick-started HUMSHAKALS (Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Bipasha Basu) with Sajid Khan in the interim period,” informs our source.
Once the 40 day schedule of HUMSHAKALS was wrapped up in London, it was time for work to begin on YOUNGISTAAN.
“Just like F.A.L.T.U., music would play a major part in the narrative of YOUNGISTAAN,” the source adds, “Also, though each of the four films that Jackky has done so far featured a newbie heroine, YOUNGISTAAN would have Neha Sharma in lead. Her stunning looks, glamour quotient and confidence in front of the camera (KYA SUPER KOOL HAIN HUM, JAYANTABHAI KI LUV STORY, YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA 2) went in her favour.”
The cast and crew recently did a small schedule in Indore and is now in Japan for an exclusive shoot.
