Come February 2014, Love is all set to get a little ‘Senti’ and a little ‘Mental’ if Vinil Mathews directed Hasee Toh Phasee is anything to go by. The first trailer launch took place in Mumbai on Friday evening with the director Vinil, lead pair Parineeti Chopra and Sidharth Malhotra. The honchos of the two production houses – Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Phantom Productions, Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane, Vikas Bahl were all in full attendance at the event. Adah Sharma, who was last seen in ‘Hum Hain Raahi Car Ke’, plays the second female lead in the film.
Speaking on the association with Phantom films, Karan Johar said he never imagined doing a film with Anurag Kashyap, but not only are they financing a movie together, Karan is also acting in Anurag’s Bombay Velvet. “The company Phantom is not only formed on the basis of strong content in cinema but it is also the coming together of many minds. I thought it would be really quite unusual to collaborate with so many different minds, apart from the fact that what was really wonderful was the script they brought to me”
While Parineeti chuckled out the question that no guy has fallen for her laugh, Sidharth confessed that since he was an athlete, he would fake injuries to get girls attention.
When questioned what the audiences can expect from the film, Parineeti confidently asserted, ‘The film has much more than what we show in the trailer of just two minutes. I assure you when you watch the movie; you will be in for a big surprise” and what was the idea behind the title ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’, Karan quite sheepishly admitted that in all possibility the film has nothing to do with the title. ‘Hasee Toh Phasee is like a cool expression, which we thought goes well with the energy of the film. Everyone just liked the title, it had a nice ring to it and so we went ahead with it”
While it remains to see if the film can make the audience laugh enough to be tricked into loving it, for now have a look at the trailer and go ‘cucking frazy’!
