After an action entertainer Race, Akshaye Khanna would
be seen again in a family comedy, courtesy Priyadarshan with whom
he reunites for Mere Baap Pehile Aap.
The film was started and completed without much hype and now as
Mere Baap Pehile Aap is aiming for a release in the month
of June, its promotion has kick started. But why this secrecy
around the project? When most films tom-tom about everything from
pre-production to shooting tid-bits to any trivial thing related to
the making of the film, how come Mere Baap Pehile Aap
escape the media eye?
"That's because this is the way Priyan sir loves to operate",
says a close associate of Priyadarshan, "He doesn't want people to
be knowing so much about his films way in advance that it looses
it's charm once it hits the screens. He wants audience to explore
his films by themselves on the screen rather than reading or seeing
too much about it in newspaper, magazines or news/music channels.
This is why the film has been intentionally completed in
Starring Paresh Rawal as Akshaye Khanna's 'baap', the film
features Genelia D' Souza as Akshaye's leading lady. The film also
stars Naseeruddin Shah, Shobhana, Om Puri, Rajpal Yadav, Manoj
Joshi and Archana Puran Singh.
