Mumbai, July 11 (): Girish Kumar and Shruti Haasan starrer Ramaiya Vastavaiya directed by Prabhudheva hopes to aim for the record created by the Salman Khan-Madhuri Dixit affair ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’.
Ramaiya Vastavaiya is a family entertainer with as good as 34 actors filling the frames. We still remember the family outing of ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’ with so many notable actors coming together under one umbrella. Other than Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit, there were Renuka Shahane, Mohnish Behl, Anupam Kher, Reema Lagoo, Bindu, Alok Nath along with Lakshmikant Berde and many others.
Now, ‘Ramaiya Vastavaiya’ looks more promising to render the same magic, as far as showcasing a close knit family.
Ramaiya Vastavaiya has a huge star cast. Other than the debutant actors Girish Kumar and Shruti Hassan, the film also sees Sonu Sood in pivotal role along with veterans Vinod Khanna, Randhir Kapoor, Poonam Dhillon, Govind Namdev, Nasser, Paresh Ganatra, Satish Shah and Zakir Hussain. Moreover, Jacqueline Fernandez appears in a much hyped item number ‘Jadoo Ki Jhappi’.
Girish plays a NRI who enters an Indian village. Director Prabhudeva said that Girish impressed him with his eagerness to do everything that the script required. The director added the dedication of Girish and hard work would take him a long way.
Girish Kumar has performed all the stunts in the film on his own. When there was a shoot for a scene where the camera had to capture an expression of his mouth burning – Girish actually ate 20 red chillies just to get the required facial expression. The actor has learnt a lot for this film – from learning farming, milking cows to riding bullock carts.
Ramaiya Vastavaiya, in Hum Aapke Hain Kaun style, will surely charm the cinema lovers. This family entertainer is slated to release on July 19.
