KJo surprises with Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu
Shakun Batra’s directorial debut Short Term Shaadi produced under KJo’s Dharma Productions has now been rechristened as Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu. Starring Imran Khan & Kareena Kapoor in the main lead, this romantic movie is currently under production phase. It is amazing that Kareena is romancing Aamir in one film and then his nephew Imran in another. It was KJo’s cajoling skill which brought together Kareena & Imran to share same screen space.
Obviously, Bebo had few reservations to be paired against new comers like Imran, while she had been gelling pretty well with Salman, Ajay, Akki, SRK, Aamir and likes. It was a big decision for her to play opposite lead to newbie like Imran. While, Imran on the other hand has been great fan of Bebo and is more than happy to finally play lead opposite to her.
Apart from pairing these stars for the first time, It was KJo’s idea to change the movie title for this rom-com.
Karan told the media;
“Short Term Shaadi was just a working title that attached itself to this film through the making. Neither Shakun Batra nor I were happy with it from the start, so we went title hunting. Just recently, we settled on Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, but there was a process attached to getting it, hence the delayed announcement.”
Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu will release on February 10 next year and KJo recommends it as the perfect Valentine’s Day flick. Says he, “You can watch it with your friend or with your date.”
He also feels that this could well be Dharma Productions’ hat-trick in the romcom genre; the earlier two being Wake Up Sid and I Hate Luv Storys.
