MUMBAI: Aloo Chaat starring Aftab Shivdasani and Aamna Shariff is scheduled to release on 20 March. The movie is produced by Mirchi Movies and actor Anuj Saxena’s Maverick Productions in association with Red Ice films.
Directed by Robby Grewal, the film also stars Linda Arsenio, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Manoj Pahwa, Sanjay Mishra, Dolly Ahluwalia and Meenakshi Sethi.
“Aloo Chaat is one film, which will keep you thoroughly entertained with that constant smile on your face. The film is made for a family audience. I can assure that no one from the audience will have a single moment of embarrassment or discomfort when the film is on; it is so clean,’ says Shivdasani.
Shariff adds, “I am playing a Muslim girl who falls in love with a Punjabi boy. The name of my character is also Aamna. My character is that of a simple, straight- forward and a fun loving girl. I totally relate to this character and I am sure every girl can relate to it.”
Saxena adds, “The film has been shot well on time. The film looks good and it is a realistic comedy which audience can watch with their family. The flavour of the film is so that audiences will connect to it instantly and when you come out of the theatre you will come out feeling light.”
Grewal says, “Aloo Chaat was conceived as a film with the objective of entertaining the audience, with a liberal dose of fun and laughter, but at the same time leaving a pertinent question regarding discrimination of people on the basis of caste and creed. It’s a film set in Delhi with all the trappings of a middle class Punjabi household. I seriously believe Punjabis are the funniest species on the planet, and I have attempted to capture that very essence of Punjabi humour in my film.”
