For BITTOO BOSS Pulkit Samrat, there was some good recognition that came his way when he turned FUKREY with a bunch of other youngsters. Though one couldn’t help but exclaim O TERI on seeing the namesake film, it is going to be an interesting watch for sure with JUNOONIYAT being his first out and out love story.

“Yes, the film is a musical romantic entertainer and is a complete departure from what Pulkit has done so far. If one looks at his career graph, each of his released films has been a comedy while his forthcoming films DOLLY KI DOLI and BANGISTAN too are based on the humor quotient. However for a chocolate boy that he is, it was about time that he does a love story. JUNOONIYAT, as the title suggests, is one such film,” informs a source.
One hears that director Vivek Agnihotri has been inspired by Yash Chopra school of filmmaking for JUNOONIYAT. While picking Pulkit and Yami Gautam as a good looking lead couple for his film, Vivek too is entering into an altogether different territory after making a suspense thriller (Chocolate), sports flick (DHAN DHANA DHAN GOAL) and an erotica (HATE STORY).
“I have never stuck to a genre and this is what makes JUNOONIYAT different,” says Agnihotri whose psychological thriller ZID is up for release as well, “This one is going to be my ode to Yash Chopra. Of course he is a master of love stories and is pretty much unassailable. But then one can be inspired and at least try, isn’t it? I believe Pulkit and Yami make for a great on-screen couple and can promise that it is going to be a musical to watch out for next year.”
With Bhushan Kumar as a producer, who is known for his musicals (AASHIQUI 2), one hopes that indeed turns out to be the case. As for Pulkit, it would be great to see how he spreads his arms and bring on the Shahrukh Khan magic to screen with Yami alongside him.
