Confirms a source attached to the film's production team, "We had to be protective about Khushboo since it is the launch pad of newcomers Avantikka and Rishi Rehan. With so many newcomers arriving around the same time, we had to be doubly sure about the day when the film would be out at theaters."
He goes on to add, "We concentrated on promoting the film's music in the meanwhile and by the grace of God, it has picked on well. Adnan Sami's music carries good melody which goes perfectly fine with the romantic mood of Khushboo."
Ask him if the film belongs to the same genre as a DDLJ or Jab We Met, as suggested by the young look and feel of the promos and he winks, "See the movie to know whether it belongs to the same genre or belongs to a league of its own. We have to remember that the film is a Pahlaj Nihalani production and the film maker has launched many a newcomers in the past while having worked with the biggest of actors."
Directed by debutant film maker Rajesh Ram Singh, Khushboo also stars Ninad Kamat, Raj Babbar and Prem Chopra. The film is releasing alongside two other young films - De Taali and Haal-E-Dil. Incidentally Haal-E-Dil too comprises mainly of newcomers and would be acting as a launch pad of Nakuul Mehta, Amita Pathak and Adhyayan Suman.
Concludes the source, "We are confident about our film. Khushboo may be a little low key as of now but we are sure that good word of mouth would take it through."
