The film is directed by Mudassar Aziz and also stars Abhay Deol.
There was a time long ago when Deepika Padukone couldn't hold on to her heroes in her films and lose them to newbies! We are talking about the movie Cocktail where Deepika Padukone had played the wild child who couldn't hold on to a terribly miscast Saif Ali Khan and had lost him to a seedhi saadhi girl, played by Diana Penty.
Diana Penty... Remember her? After Cocktail, we have never seen her in a any Bollywood film apart from a snide reference about her name in Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum. Now years later, this model turned actress is all set to make comeback in Happy Bhag Jayegi. Going by the poster, we are sure she is called Happy!
The film also stars Abhay Deol, Ali Fazal, Jimmy Sheirgill and Pakistani actress Momal Sheikh. It is directed by Mudassar Aziz, who previously made Dulha Mil Gaya, in which Shah Rukh Khan had a cameo. The film is produced by Eros International and Aanand L Rai.
The makers have released the first teaser poster of the film, which has Diana Penty (we think its her, since the we only see the girl from behind), wearing bridal clothes, on which she had put on a travelling bag and has also worn running shoes. She is all set to run away, maybe on the eve of her wedding day, reminding us of Julia Roberts'very popular romcom Runaway Bride. Whether she actually runs away or not, or whether she is really Diana Penty or what Abhay Deol has to do with all madness...well, we have to wait and watch!
The film releases on August 19.
