Filmmaker Abbas Tyrewala, who shot to fame with his very first film Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, is back with yet another romantic comedy, Jhootha Hi Sahi starring John Abraham & his wife Palkhi. However, Jhootha Hi Sahi is far mature than teeny bopper lovestory Jaane Tu.
Says the director, “Unlike Jaane Tu the heartbreak is real in Jhootha Hi Sahi. When heartbreak happens it actually pains. Jaane Tu was little playful and childish. However in case of Jhootha Hi Sahi there is lot of pain. It is more serious film. Though it’s a rom com there is a dramatic aspect to it.”
The film underwent a few name changes before settling for Jhootha Hi Sahi. Initially it was called 1-800 LOVE, which was then changed to Call Me Dil. “It was actually never renamed. From the kind of movie that was conceived out we had set a working title 1-800 LOVE. But eventually we realized that the whole concept of toll free number is not that popular.
The idea that alphabets stand for number seemed less convincing, so we always knew that for broader Indian audience it will never work. So we locked on Jhootha Hi Sahi. In between, one of the other titles that we were considering was Call Me Dil, which never really happened. However, somebody leaked to the media and they decided to call it Call Me Dil,” Abbas says.
The music of the movie is composed by Academy Award Winnig musician A R Rahman and director Abbas quotes “Whatever the time taken over the music is worth it. Rahman doing the music adds a totally new dimension to my film.”
The music rights is taken over by Saregama and music is expected to release mid September. The trailer will be unveiled on July 29, 2010.
