Lowe's creative director, Balki is coming out with a movie of his own called 'Chini Kum', starring Amitabh Bachchan and Tabu. The film's tagline is interesting and is called ,'A sugar-free romance'. And without giving the plot away, the film has Amitabh Bachchan saying some pretty philosophical lines to Tabu, while well...proposing to her. The 'sugar-free' fits in because Balki says it's a less mushy movie.
Balkis reason for making a movie??
"There is so much of television happening, that you kind of think you have three hours to tell a story the way you really want it to without any pressure - that's not really true because it's exactly the same thing. There is no great crossover that's required because I think advertising is as exciting. It's just that when you do something for a long time, the grass always seems greener on the other side. But if you just do that (other) thing once, and you'll know how attractive this is!"
Okay, here is a little more tasty tit bit about the movie - both Bachchan and Tabu rag each other into falling in love. So, the dialogues are matter-of-fact and tongue-in-cheek. Also, don't expect it to be the usual candyfloss faff - the kind with too much sugar and that puts you to sleep midway through the film!
So wait for more news...
