Tuesday, May 16, 2012: Yash Raj Films’ youth films’ studio Y-Films’ just began filming their third production. Titled Mere Dad Ki Maruti [MDKM], it’s 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 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, he will be romancing another hot new face being launched by Y-Films. Not only that Yash Raj Films’ introduces some more new talent on the back of Ishaqzaade.
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!
