Chalo Dilli is a story of two men where one of the men metamorphosed into a la-di-dah woman who’s suddenly thrown into the company of this middle-class Delhi saree seller.
Chalo Dilli is a ‘journey’ film that showcases India, through the relationship of this mismatched couple and ends with a surprise twist. Says director Shashant Shah, “The script was earlier titled Ab Dilli Door Nahin, but it was already registered by somebody else. So I suggested, Chalo Dilli.”
Lara Dutta‘s first home production, Chalo Dilli, is inching towards its April 29 release. The film was wrapped up in a start-to-finish 33-day schedule, which included only a three-day break. There was a 26-day shoot in Delhi and Jaipur, and a week-long spell in Mumbai. Produced by Eros International in association with Big Daddy Productions, which is owned by Dutta’s husband Mahesh Bhupathi’s Globosport, and her Bheegi Basanti Production, the movie pairs the former Miss Universe with funny man Vinay Pathak.
