After making critically acclaimed and commercially successful cimematic pieces like ‘Dev D’, ‘Aamir’ and ‘Udaan’, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has again teamed up with UTV Spotboy for a comedy.
Titled ‘Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana’, the film went on the floors in Punjab last week with debutant Sameer Sharma helming the project.
‘Together we (UTV, Anurag and composer Amit Trivedi) have done some really good stuff starting with ‘Aamir’ and then ‘Dev D’ and ‘Udaan’. And we hope to repeat the same with ‘Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana’. It’s everything that the title says. And the Shuv between the Luv and the chicken is what is more fun,’ Kashyap said in a statement.
Kashyap has roped in Trivedi for the muisc.
As the title suggests, the film has Punjabi flavour – it revolves around a Punjabi joint family and a secret recipe of a dish called Chicken Khurana. The film promises to entertain audiences with inherent humour, drama, emotion and confusion on the screen.
‘Anurag shared the script with us and we instantly fell in love with the characters and the world that the writer Sumit Batheja has created. Very few stories can make you laugh out loud one moment and bring a lump in your throat the next – ‘Luv Shuv’ maintains that delicate balance of humour and emotion throughout,’ said Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO, UTV Motion Pictures.
While Kunal Kapoor plays the male lead, newcomer Huma Qureshi has been roped in to play the female protagonist. She would also be seen in Kashyap’s ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’.
