What could Govinda, chai and seven degrees of separation all have to do with each other you may ask. Well, they all have a part to play in director Aditya Datt’s new film titled Chai Garam.
Datt explained, “ Chai Garam is a romantic comedy starring Govinda, Esha Deol, Celina Jaitley, Sunil Shetty, Raima Sen, Javed Jaffrey, Rajpal Yadav, Ravi Kissen and Anupam Kher. The film is not about tea (chai) per se. The basic thought of the film started from the theory of Seven degrees of separation. It’s about how we are all connected by knowing someone who in turn knows someone and all that jazz. But what is common to each of the characters is tea (chai).”
The title Chai Garam is very interesting and Datt said he chose the title because, “Tea is an integral part of everyone’s life. Be it any occasion, when you are happy you have a cup of tea, when you are sad you have a cup of tea. Be it a business meeting or just a date with your loved one, a cup of tea is always an important part of our lives. So it’s a light film about how these various characters get connected with one another.”
The young director said that working with Govinda was “simply superb.” Adding, “Govinda plays a Bengali character in the film, who is a creative head in an ad agency. We have just started shooting but I must say that he is one of the best performers I have seen in front of the camera.”
With such a great cast and an intriguing concept this film is one to keep your eye on. We will be sure to report all the news about Chai Garam so watch this space for more.
