Mumbai, March 20 -- Post a slew of serious films, today's release, Dilliwaali Zaalim Girlfriend, is a lighthearted romantic comedy directed by debutant Japinder Kaur.
Touted as a typical Bollywood potboiler, it stars Divyendu Sharma and newcomer Prachi Mishra, in the characters of Dhruv and Sakshi. Divyendu's willingness to do anything to impress his lady love forms the basis of his comic misadventures.
Jackie Shroff, who plays a pivotal negative role in the film, is quite excited about this venture. He says, "My character is of a fun and light-hearted Punjabi baddie, and this is something I have never played. I really liked the role, so I didn't let the opportunity go. I have received a lot of compliments from people who have watched the promos."
The film also marks the comeback of Yo Yo Honey Singh, post a sabbatical, with the song 'Birthday bash'. Commenting on the youth connect of the film, Kaur says, "I wanted to make a film that was relatable for the youth. I feel the flavour, lingo, realism and slice-oflife feel are the factors that give it a fresh appeal." According to the director, "it's very important for a film to have the right vibe and freshness because that's what enhances the experience of viewing a film".
Also starring Ira Dubey and Pradhuman Singh, the film is produced by Manjeet Kaur and Tarnpreet Singh. The music is on T-Series and the film will be distributed by Wave Cinemas.
