BizAsiaLive.com reported recently that Imtiaz Ali was taking to production for the first time with his brother Arif Ali’s Indo-Japanese project. He’s now revealed some more about the film.
According to PTI, Imtiaz divulged, “It is not a remake of the old film. It is a completely fresh take and we have just borrowed the title. The hero in the story is an Indian and the heroine is Japanese. The story is rooted in their respective cultures and the film would be shot mostly in Hindi with a bit of Japanese thrown in”.
He went on to say, “This film is about these two people, who have a wonderful communication, which is not bound by any language. The core of story is about relationship transcending the barrier imposed by language”.
Arif also added, “We have already visited several places in Japan, where we wish to shoot, besides Tokyo. Our Shochiku partners have taken us to Kyoto, Hiroshima, Osaka, Wakayama. And, we truly wish to showcase endless Japan in the movie”.
