After the super success of their 2010 production My Name is Khan (co-produced with Dharma productions), Shah Rukh Khan’s production house Red Chillies Entertainment is gearing up for the June release of their next romantic-comedy Always Kabhi Kabhi. Directed by debutant Roshan Abbas (who has donned multiple hats of actor-presenter, radio jockey and theatre artist), the film introduces Zoa Morani (daughter of Cineyug honcho Karim Morani), marks the debut of Satyajeet Dubey, also has Ali Fazal (popularly known as Jay Lobo from 3 Idiots) and Giselle Monteiro (Love Aaj Kal) in leading roles. The supporting cast for the film includes Satish Shah, Lilette Dubey, Navneet Nishan, Vijay Raaz, Manoj Joshi, Mukesh Tiwari and Aakash Khurana. The music for the film has been composed by Pritam.
Inspired by Abbas’ popular 1999 play Graffiti, the film hits the screens worldwide on 17th June 2011. Set in a school in Mumbai, the coming of age story follows a set of four friends in their last year of school. The first look of the film was unveiled earlier today. The first promo of is expected to be showcased at the screening of the movie Game, which releases this Friday, 1st April 2011.
About the film director Abbas said, it was a challenge to go from play to screenplay, “But it took time to develop it into a full-fledged screenplay. Shah Rukh pointed out two things. One, cinema and play are two different mediums and the written material had to be more cinematic. Two, it had to be contemporary. Also, I’d like to clarify, though the film revolves around teens, it’s not inspired by ‘Archie’. It actually borrows from real life experiences.” Adding, “I have truly enjoyed the experience of making Always Kabhi Kabhi. And I wish to continue chasing my dream.”
