We have the first look at Yash Raj Films’ youth film studio’s next venture, Mere Dad Ki Maruti! Get ready for an outrageous comedy set against the backdrop of a loud Punjabi wedding in Chandigarh. MDKM tells the story of a boy who sneaks his dad’s fancy new car out to impress the college hottie and how all hell breaks loose when he loses it!
Mere Dad Ki Maruti stars Ram Kapoor, one of television’s most loved actors as the khadoos dad in his first full-fledged comedy role. And the leads are played by the next two new faces that YRF is launching after Anushka, Ranveer and Arjun, Parineeti namely Saqib Saleem who made his debut in last year’s sleeper hit from Y-Films’ Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge. Proclaimed the ‘Find of the Year’ by critics, Saqib will be romancing another hot new face being launched by Y-Films, Rhea. Rhea was spotted when she was a finalist in the Ms. Teen International pageant and went on to become the youngest VJ on MTV. Having fine-tuned her acting chops in a South film, directed by Prabhu Deva, she now plays a fun Chandigarh girl who inadvertently becomes the root cause of the hero’s troubles with his car. A great looker, fabulous dancer and full of energy, Rhea promises to be someone to watch out for!
MDKM also marks the directorial debut of Ashima Chibber who has been associated with some of the most talented directors of our times. Beginning as Shimit Amin’s First AD on Ab Tak Chappan and Chak De India among others, Ashima’s last project was as First Assistant Director to Imtiaz Ali on Rockstar.
The film has a thumping soundtrack by Sachin Gupta who previously scored the chartbusting music of ‘Prince’ and a host of pop albums for artistes like Atif Aslam, Mika and more. There are a bunch of other tricks in the bag that will be announced shortly and Mere Dad Ki Maruti sure promises to be one crazy ride!
