Overstaying the hospitality

Ajoint venture of Warner Bros Pictures India and Wide Frame Films, Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge? will hit the screens early next year. Starring Ajay Devgn, Konkona Sen Sharma and Paresh Rawal, the movie has been directed by Ashwani Dheer and produced by Amita Pathak. “The script of Atithi… itself is a non-stop laugh riot and you add the comical talents of Ajay, Paresh and Konkona, you have a winner at the box office,” says Denzil Dias from Warner Bros.

Says the debutant producer Amita Pathak, “When my director (Ashwani Dheer) narrated the script to me, I could completely relate to it as we have also faced a similar scenario at home leading to a lot of funny and frustrating situations. We felt it made the perfect premise for a rip-roaring comedy. And that is how Athithi Tum Kab Jaoge? was born.”

This is the first time three National Award winners likes Ajay, Konkona and Paresh have been cast together for a light-hearted comedy. Says the main lead, Ajay, “I liked the script because it is very real and has some slice-of-life comic situations. It is also very cleverly written and the humour in the dialogues makes it very likeable. I’m sure people from all walks of life will identify with this, because every home must have had a guest who has been the bane of their lives.”

To be shot over 50 days at Yashraj Studios and other locales in Mumbai, the film is slated to release on February 26, 2010. The music for the film has been composed by Pritam while the lyrics have been penned by Irshad Kamil. The cinematographer of the film is Aseem Bajaj, the sound recordist is Shubhash Sahu while production designs will be by Sabu Cyril.
