Sushant Singh Rajput
Director of the run away hit Band Baaja Baraat, Maneesh Sharma is back, this time teaming up Sushant Singh Rajput (Kai Po Che) with Parineeti Chopra (Ladies vs Ricky Bahl and Ishaqzaade) and newcomer Vaani Kapoor.
Yash Raj have released a digital poster and a very rustic looking one.
Although he got rave reviews for Kai Po Che, Sushant Singh just has a bit too much of Vivek Oberoi’s doucheyness for me to fully like him. Parineeti is awesome though and I can’t wait to see what she will be up to when her 3 deal contract with YRF is over.
I think like their predecessors Ranveer Singh and Anushkha the bigger and interesting works comes after the contract is done.
We don’t get to see much of what the movie will be about but here is some info in any case from the YRF website:
From the director of Band Baaja Baaraat and the writer of Chak De! India, comes a fresh and very real love story about the hair-raising minefield between love, attraction and commitment — SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE — finally, a romantic comedy that tells it like it is.
Starring in this classy, candid look at the affairs of the heart in today’s desi heartland are the endearing Rishi Kapoor, exceptionally talented Sushant Singh Rajput, and the versatile Parineeti Chopra, along with debutant Vaani Kapoor.
SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE is directed by Maneesh Sharma, written by Jaideep Sahni, and produced by Aditya Chopra.

Desi dude friendship = Shirtless street dancing + jumping in lakes
Or at least that’s what seems to be the case for Abhishek Kapoor who gets back in the directing chair after a conspicuously long delay after his massively successful Rock on, now 4 years ago.
Teaming up with the producers of Rang De Basanti and adapted from the novel of Chetan Bhagat, the trailer looks exactly like what you would expect when these 3 names would come together.
3 different guy friends (we never seem to get movies about female friendship as much) taking car roads, teasing each other and running from stuff.
Pretty sure the movie will have heart and the newcomers do look quite energetic (although some have a bit of a Ranveer Singh hangover) but the trailer just looks a bit bland and paint by numbers for the moment.
Music is by Amit Trivedi so that should be pretty amazing.
Here is the trailer:
Kai Po Che releases in cinemas on 22nd Feb 2013.
