Dharma Productions has added another feather to its cap with its upcoming kid flick, “Gippi”. Having explored an array of genres, right from romance to action and family entertainers, Karan Johar is all set to focus on something for the kids now.
Apart from “The Blue Umbrella”, “Taare Zameen Par” and “Chillar Party”, we have yet to see that many children-based films churned out by the Indian Film industry in the past few years. While we know that Karan Johar’s animated remake of Kuch Kuch Hota Hain – “Koochie Koochie Hota Hain” has been bumped back for a theatrical release, his “Gippi” does come across as a breath of fresh air.
These days promoting films are of paramount importance and nobody comes close to Kjo as far as movie promotions are concerned. This time round, Karan Johar engaged the latest heartthrobs, Siddharth Malhotra and Arjun Kapoor, to feature in the first teaser of “Gippi”. You will see a very cool and unruffled Malhotra talking about his childhood crush while sipping a mug of coffee. Arjun Kapoor, on the other hand, is seen unapologetically gobbling a huge burger, just like “Gippi”!
Check out the teasers below:
The official trailer will be out on 01 April 2013. After giving chances to few assistants in “Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu” and “Wake Up Sid”, Karan Johar is all set to launch female director, Sonam Nair, with this film. Sonam Nair, who was an assistant in “Wake Up Sid”, will be making her debut as a director with “Gippi”, that focuses on the life of a 14 year old girl played by Delhi based newcomer Riya Vij. Taaha Shah, who made his debut in YRF’s “Luv Ka The End”, will also be seen in a pivotal role. A large portion of the film has been shot in Shimla and music has been composed by Vishal – Shekhar.
To be released on the 10 May 2013, Karan Johar is all set to win the hearts of many children with this film!
