Love once more

The name says it all. Luv U Bobby is a love story with all modern flavours
By Ashima Sehajpal, The Tribune, Lifestyle
Boy meets girl and they fall in love. But the families, which are arch-rivals, come in the way. Rest you can well imagine. But then, this one is a time-tested formula the film industry has been experimenting with time and again. Our Punjabi film industry is no different, which is all set to bring out this topic once again in its latest offering, Luv U Bobby.
This flick will see Guggu Gill and Yograj Singh, once a popular jodi, sharing the screen space after a gap of 13 years. As they announce the beginning of the shooting of the film on Monday, we get the actors talking about their roles, past experiences and much more.
“The subject of the film is old, but it will be presented in the backdrop of a modern Punjab. So you will not see any trace of the rustic Punjab in this one,” avers Yograj. He does not forget to mention that face of the Punjabi film industry has undergone a catharsis. “Filmmakers are experimenting these days and are making films on subjects that family dramas, love stories to social issues and Manmohan Singh is the trendsetter.”

Guggu Gill, who has been a part of the industry for the past 20 years, will play the hero’s father. About the film, he says, “It is a complete an entertainment package with lots of drama, dance, and action.” The actor, who was recently seen in Mera Pind, believes that professionalism and flexible budget is making the industry thrive. “Till a decade ago, we did not know how important it was to market a product and how to launch a film. Many good films got bombed because of we lacked of proper strategies but today we are following Bollywood’s tactic and hence earning returns,” he adds.
Happy that the NRI segment is taking interest in Punjabi cinema, he says, “They give the same response to our films as much as any Bollywood production which is quite encouraging.”
Poonam and Vikram Sidhu will make their debut in the lead roles. Renowned playback singers like Labh Janjua, Kunal Gnajawala, Kailash Kher and Sunidhi Chauhan will lend their voice to the songs. The film will be directed by Gurinder Singh.
