Turning 30!!! sees producer Prakash Jha working on his first non — political film with long time assistant turned director Alankita Srivastav.
Set in Mumbai, Turning 30!!! is pegged as young urban love story which sees a girl named Naina, deal with heartbreak, a catastrophe in her vocation all ahead of her 30th birthday. With the first look seeing the film labeled as a chick — flick questions, have been raised about Turning 30!!! using English as the primary language, especially after the failure faced by Kites. However, Srivastav has her reasons, she explained, “There was a time when there used to be very few writers who used to write in English. That was all that it was. The time has again come where English writing is being used in the film in terms of dialogues and the actual lingo. As far as Indian films are concerned, there are a few directors who embark on the same philosophy of using English as one of their languages in their films. After all, bilingual films do appeal to a large section of our cine-going audiences.”
So Boys Step aside – looks like this is one film that is all set to be one for the girls —
