Tusshar in Farida Jalal’s first film:

Rumour : The grapevine is abuzz with the news that Farida Jalal has turned producer and has signed you to direct her first production. We’ve also been told that you’ve already confirmed Tusshar and Kareena Kapoor for the lead roles in this film, which is scheduled to go on the floors next month. If true, could you tell us what the film is all about and how the project came into being? Anant Mahadevan : It’s true that I am directing a film called YEH DIL MAANGE MORE, which will also mark Farida-ji’s production debut in films. In the rut of remakes and mediocre films, Y.D.M.M. will come across as an original romantic comedy. Based on a concept by Viveck Vaswani, the film tells an interesting story of a boy and three girls, who are all trying to win his heart. I had Tusshar in mind for this role for a very long time. When I first narrated the script to him, he laughed at all the right places and reacted the way one would’ve expected him to. He also felt that it was well written, commercially viable and at the same time, subtly entertaining. Tusshar has an excellent feel for comedy and is among the few actors who have their heads on their shoulders. Farida-ji was also keen to get into film production with a really promising subject and endorsed it at the first instance. We haven’t finalised the three girls opposite Tusshar. We hope to begin shooting for the film from July and are planning to complete it in a period of nine months.
