It is one of the most eagerly anticipated comebacks in Bollywood. Husband and wife Ajay and Kajol Devgan are to appear together on the big screen for the first time in eight years, in U, Me Aur Hum. Hmmm, interesting! And that's not enough. It's Ajay Devgan's directorial debut. Too good! But will the film live up to the over hyped expectations? Well, Kajol has the answers to the very few exclusive questions thrown in by us in a fiery conversation, which got disconnected half way.
Is Ajay going to rock the boat?
Can't say at the moment. But I am pretty confident that the film will do well and complete the journey comfortably. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Was the journey smooth throughout or were there any 'phool aur kaante' while filming?
(Laughs) Actually, there were few 'kaante's' but we jumped over it and completed our journey quite smoothly. Hopefully, the film will blossom like a flower after its release.
You and Ajay are coming back after a gap of 8 years. Wasn't it like you were working with a new comer?
No, not at all. And we are coming back together after 7 years. Working with Ajay is always a new experience because he is so unpredictable when it comes to sharing screen space with his co-stars and even the newcomers.
Having seen the promos, the film doesn't really speak about the plot. Don't you think people, now-a-days, see the film only if they like the promos?
If the trailer isn't giving much away, doesn't mean that the film is not worth watching. You throw in a song and some dialogues to make a promo. But that's not all. I think if the people want to go and watch the film, irrespective of the promos, they will go.
Kajol will always be remembered as a bubbly and a chirpy actress on screen. So what's so different about you in U, Me Aur Hum?
Everything is. I am bubbly, chirpy and a lot more. But the lot more, you will only come to know after the film comes out. What more?
Don't you worry. There is still more. Why Vishal Bharadwaj, an unconventional music director for a fun loving film like U, Me Aur Hum?
We took Vishal for the simple reason that he is a good music director and more importantly also a director of many films. You will love the music of the film, which you are right, is not the typical Vishal Bharadwaj music, but that's why you'll like it.
And what have you got to say about your experience working with a new director?
The director is new. Not the person. Working with Ajay the director is to learn many things, which I haven't, learn before from my directors. He has a different take, belief, and style of working. U, Me Aur Hum is the trump card and not Ajay Devgan or Kajol. The film is the real hero.
