One romcom which should keep the youngsters engaged this July would certainly be Kismat Konnection.
Teasers of the film have been out since last 10 days and have already managed to create positive vibes. Regardless of the age difference, Shahid Kapoor and Vidya Balan are looking good as a pair with Aziz Mirza's direction promising to be fresh and going with the current times.
A TIPS production, Kismat Konnection is catching up heat since it comes at a time when both Shahid and Vidya are riding high. While Shahid has established his solo hero pull with films like Jab We Met and Vivah, Vidya too has enjoyed success with Heyy Babyy and Bhool Bhulaiyaa.
However, not many are aware that apart from Shahid and Vidya, the film also stars Juhi Chawla. In the film, she plays the role of a gypsy fortune-teller. To go with the character, she would be seen dressed up in typical colourful bright attire, something which is associated with gypsies.
Juhi Chawla and Aziz Mirza go back a long way. She has starred in the film maker's debut film Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman and has followed it up with films like Yes Boss and Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani. While both Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman and Yes Boss were hits, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani had failed mainly because it was a little ahead of it's times. Incidentally, Aziz Mirza returned to playing safe with a romantic Chalte Chalte but it featured Rani Mukherjee instead of Juhi Chawla. The film was a success.
Now as the film maker is returning to direction, Juhi too has consented to be a part of the project, albeit not in a lead role.
