New Delhi, April 5 (IANS) Men are from Mars and women are from Venus - quite literally in "Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai", releasing Friday. It teams up Riteish Deshmukh and Jacqueline Fernandez, with the Sri Lankan beauty playing a woman who descends on Earth from Venus in search of love.
The directorial debut of Milap Zaveri - who wrote rib-tickling comedies like "Masti" and "Heyy Babyy" - is a small-budget movie co-produced by Mukesh Talreja and Nikhil Advani.
"'Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai' is extremely youthful, but the subtlety element is prevalent right through its duration," Riteish had earlier said.
Made on a budget of about Rs.10 crore (Rs.100 million), the fantasy romantic comedy is releasing worldwide with around 600 prints. It is being distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures India.
Also starring Ruslaan Mumtaz, Sonal Sehgal and Vishal Malhotra in principal roles, "Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai" boasts of a number of guest appearances - Farah Khan, Akshay Kumar, Sajid Khan, Amrita Rao, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Vidya Balan and Karan Johar.
This is Riteish's and Jacqueline's second film together after "Aladin".
The story of the movie revolves around Rajesh Parekh (Ritesh), a simple Gujrati boy who's been looking for love since he was a kid. Thoroughly unsuccessful in his endeavours, he nearly gives up till he meets Natasha (Sonal Sehgal), the girl of his dreams.
Just like Rajesh, Desh (Ruslaan Mumtaz), the youngest superstar in the country, is also looking for the girl of his dreams.
However, their worlds turn upside down when Tara (Jacqueline), an alien from Venus, lands here in search of true love. What follows is pure rib-tickling humour.
"There are some humorous as well as beautiful moments in the film when Jackie freezes time. One of the hilarious sequences is where she saves Riteish from an accident. Then, there is also a point where the two eventually realize their love for each other," Zaveri had told IANS.
While a major league of stars make special appearances in the movie, versatile actor Boman Irani will be seen in the trailer but not in the movie.
"It is for the first time in Bollywood that any actor is present in the trailer of a movie and is not present in the movie itself... They (the producers) needed a psychiatrist for the trailer of 'Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai' and I did it... otherwise there is no psychiatrist in the movie," Boman told IANS.
