Bachna Ae Haseeno promo with Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic

By Joginder Tuteja, Bollywood Hungama News Network

Continuing the tradition of showcasing the first look of their upcoming films with their latest release, Yash Raj Films would be unveiling the promo of Bachna Ae Haseeno with Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic. Releasing tomorrow i.e. 27th June, 2008, the Kunal Kohli directed film would be accompanied with a specially cut theatrical promo of Bachna Ae Haseeno which has director Siddharth Anand at the helm of affairs.

Confirms Siddharth, "I am looking forward to the audience's reaction once the first look of Bachna Ae Haseeno is unveiled. The film is a family entertainer."

Tell him that Vishal and Shekhar, the composer duo of the film, are quite confident about the film's musical score and he says, "By God's grace the songs have turned out excellent. They are beyond our expectations. Vishal-Shekhar did an excellent job in my first two films - Salaam Namaste and Ta Ra Rum Pum - and the bond continues with Bachna Ae Haseeno as well."

Produced by Aditya Chopra, Bachna Ae Haseeno stars Ranbir Kapoor in the lead. This would be his second film after an ill-fated Saawariya which released last Diwali. Though the film was a commercial failure, it overnight made a superstar out of Ranbir Kapoor. Incidentally, Ranbir's co-star in Bachna Ae Haseeno is his real life girlfriend Deepika Padukone whose Om Shanti Om had crushed Saawariya, as both the films had release on the same day.

The film boasts of a casting coup of sorts since it also features Bipasha Basu and Minissha Lamba. With as many as three gorgeous women in tow, Ranbir has enjoyed quite a handful in Bachna Ae Haseeno. Also, it would have only turned out to be the case of more-the-better had Katrina Kaif stayed on as yet another female lead in the film. Though she was signed for the film, she had to eventually exit since the makers found that her part was making the film too long.

Now all set to release on 15th August, the film is most important for a) Ranbir Kapoor - since he would be looking at wiping away Saawariya debacle, b) Deepika Padukone - since she would be looking at following up on the blockbuster success of Om Shanti Om and c) Siddharth Anand - since he would be looking at completing a hat trick of successful films with YRF after Salaam Namaste and Ta Ra Rum Pum.
