Dia Mirza, naturally enough, sounds thrilled about her first production Love Breakups Zindagi. “I play a sentimental fool in the film and the character is a lot like me,” she chirps.
Film production may be old hat for his family, but Zayed Khan is a newbie at the game. He is Dia’s business partner in Born Free Entertainment Pvt Ltd, and also her co-star in the film. “The film is our baby and the extra effort has been a painfully joyous process. It is a feel-good, socially relevant film about contemporary relationships that break social taboos. It has a quirky script,” says Zayed, who plays a marketing executive facing a mid-life crisis.
Written and directed by their other partner Sahil Sangha, the Sahara Motion Pictures collaboration is slated for an October 7 release. The response to the theatrical promo on air has been extremely positive, says Sahil.
“We are set to kick off a young and vibrant marketing campaign and we are sure that it will strike a chord with all those who have had a taste of Love Breakups Zindagi. The story comes straight from the heart as it travels through the lives of young individuals who struggle to interpret the nuances of that tricky thing called love,” adds the director.
Also, the first time collaboration between lyricist Javed Akhtar and composer duo Salim-Suleiman brings something unique to the film’s music. Bhushan Kumar at T-Series echoes that thought and is excited about the film’s melodies.
