“It is such a pleasure to be here today. My association with Sanjayji (Sanjay Leela Bhansali) goes back to ‘Devdas’. I have interacted with Belaji too. It is such an unusual story. When you think of Shirin and Farhad, you think of a classic love story. But here they are two very cute characters and I think it will do really well. I wish it all the best,” Madhuri, who unveiled the first look of the film, said.
Co-produced by Bhansali and a production company, the film will see Farah Khan and Boman Irani as the lead pair.
“I want to wish Farah and Bomanji all the best. I had interacted with Farah during my film ‘Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam”. She was the choreographer. She is fun to work with and I really love her work,” said Madhuri.
The film, which is Bela’s first film as a director also marks Farah’s acting debut.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali said, “I want to thank Madhuri for being here. It is a very special gesture. It is very difficult to make Madhuri Dixit to say yes. I know because I have gone through it. It is a very special moment for me.”
