The normally joke-cracking and easy-going Sajid Khan gets serious the
moment you ask him if his new outing HEYY BABYY is a remake of the
Hollywood hit THREE MEN AND A BABY. “Sure, there are three men
and a baby in my film, but the similarities end there. My film is not THREE
MEN AND A BABY,” he clarifies instantly.
Please continue. “The three men in my story are a reflection of what I
am in real life. I’ve incorporated my habits/traits in the three male leads
[enacted by Akshay, Fardeen, Ritesh]. HEYY BABYY is completely
different from any of the films you’ve seen so far. It’s as much THREE
MEN AND A BABY as PATCH ADAMS was MUNNABHAI M.B.B.S.,”
Meanwhile, not many are aware that HEYY BABYY stars as many as
21 [yes, you read that right!] leading ladies of Bollywood. Of course,
Vidya Balan enacts the principal lead, but as many as 20 actresses feature
in the film as well, 14 of them appearing in one song alone [‘Ishq
Mohabbat Pyaar Ki Baatein’].
