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 secrecy."
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.
