Producer-director Shahrukh Mirza known for his musical hits in 80's is all set to launch his son Rehaan in his forthcoming movie Jaana - Lets Fall in Love. But this is not all that makes this movie special. What is making news is the comeback of two veteran actors - Rajesh Khanna and Zeenat Aman who will be seen together after a long gap.
Producer director Shahrukh Mirza said, "The movie projects today's youth. It has a message for everyone. My son Rehaan will play the lead role and is paired opposite actress Anjana Sukhani."
According to him the plot of the movie is 20 years old. Mirza wanted Raj Kapoor to direct this film. He narrated the script to Raj Kapoor, who liked it but suggested Mirza brothers to change the climax. Mirza brothers disinclined the thought and lost the opportunity to work with a legend. "I missed a lifetime opportunity to work with a legend Raj Kapoor. Now I feel he was right. He wanted an emotional climax for the movie which was right. Now I regret on my decision."
However, Mirza has reworked on the same plot now. Talking about the movie he said. It's a story of two generations. "It's about a small town guy who wants to be rich and thinks that money and success can be achieved through his lady love. Rajesh Khanna is one of the central characters in the movie. He plays a man who returns to India to find his old ladylove, played by Zeenat."
This project will not only launch Rehaan but also his elder brother Farhaan Mirza who will make his debut as a director. Being taught by his own father, 24 year old Rehaan has been formally trained from Kishore Namit Kapoor's acting school. He has taken his dance lessons from Shakur.
The music of this movie has been composed by five music directors. He says, "There are five music directors working for the same movie. I want the best music and everyone has done a great job. Music and songs are very much contemporary and will be turn out as the best chart busters."
Talking about casting Rajesh Khanna, Mirza said, "I can't think of someone else except Rajesh Khanna after Amitabh Bachchan. Since I had always thought of Rajesh Khanna and he fits the bill, I approached him. He is phenomenal and a happy-go-lucky person. When I narrated the script to him, he liked it and agreed to do the film.." The last film they did together was Jaanwar way back in 1982.
Mirza also informed that the film would also have many old superhit numbers and dialogues from Rajesh Khanna and Zeenat Aman movies from the past.
