‘Jaana’ – The story behind the story

Almost thirty years ago, reputed writers Mirza Brothers were planning to make a film with Rishi Kapoor. Tahir Husain, Aamir Khans father, was supposed to produce the project then. The project fell through due to certain reasons. Later, Ramanand Sagar took up their script and the super-star then, Rajesh Khanna, was assigned the lead role. Unfortunately, the producer passed away and the project got aborted. Subsequently, the greatest Showman, Raj Kapoor, showed a keen interest in the script. But his only shart was, the writers should change the ending. Mirza Brothers didnt budge and the project never got made. Now, three decades later, Mirza Brothers have finally realized their dream. Mirza Brothers who have written the scripts of popular films such as KASME VAADE [Amitabh, Randhir], LOVE STORY [Kumar Gaurav], AAP KE DEEWANE [Rishi Kapoor, Rakesh Roshan], DHANWAN [Rajesh Khanna, Rakesh Roshan] and ZAKHMEE [Sunil Dutt] have not only scripted their new film, which is titled JAANA LETS FALL IN LOVE, but Shahrukh Mirza [one of the three Mirza Brothers] and his son Farhan have jointly directed the film. The film introduces Shahrukhs younger son Rehan Khan in the lead with Anjana Sukhani [HUMDUM, SALAAM-E-ISHQ] along with Rajesh Khanna and Zeenat Aman essaying key roles. Shot entirely in Nainital, the producers [Tess Mirza Films P. Ltd.] have made a 30-minute showreel of JAANA LETS FALL IN LOVE, which gives the viewer an insight into the film. And the first thing you notice is that Rehan is an exceptional dancer. The youngster has all it takes to be a sought-after name: Hes proficient in acting, has very good screen presence and delivers dialogues effectively. The Mirzas describe JAANA LETS FALL IN LOVE as a love story with a story. Its not the routine boy meets girl saga you encounter every second week, Shahrukh Mirza informs me, And though we didnt agree to Raj Kapoors suggestion then [the change of climax], weve done it now. Weve incorporated Raj-saabs suggestions and modified the ending of the film. JAANA LETS FALL IN LOVE is slated for a March 2006 release.
