Maverick filmmaker Imtiaz Ali and TV czarina Ekta Kapoor collaborated to retell the iconic story of Laila-Majnu with newcomers Avinash Tiwary and Tripti Dimri. The romantic drama, which released last Friday took a slow-start in the morning but gradually picked up in the evening and night shows thanks to the relevant and strong content of the film and not to forget the crackling chemistry between the lead pair.
In an exclusive interview with us, we asked the lead characters, how they broke the ice on the first day, to which Tripti replied, "Nothing happened on first day as there was lot of awkwardness between me and Avinash. Later, Ashley Lobo worked on our chemistry and during that we bonded with each other. We use to work out together and even lunch together. So, when you spend most of the time together, you get to know each other very well, which really helps to get equation on the silver screen." On the other hand, Avinash was teasing Tripti as he said, "On the first day, when we met on the set, Tripti was thinking which kind of animal, they have cast in the film. Though later the workshop helped us to bond well during the shooting."
Like Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Laila Majnu also has the potential to become one of the sleeper hits of the year. Talking about the film, it is directed by Sajid Ali and is produced under the banner of Balaji Motion Pictures. The film has received rave reviews unanimously, which will definitely help it at the box office to boost its business. Our critic Ankita Churasia gave the film four stars and wrote, "Laila Majnu is for all those who believe in love. But it is a must-watch for those who dont. Take some hours off your hectic life to catch love at its unconditional best."
