Entertainment Desk January 15, 2021

Last year, it was announced that journalist and PM Imran Khan's former wife Jemima Goldsmith would be writing and producing her first romantic-comedy What's Love Got To Do With It? under the banner of her company Instinct Production. Reports further added that she was to collaborate with Indian film-maker Shekhar Kapur on the film, which would be his first since 2007 Oscar-winner Elizabeth: The Golden Age.

What's Love Got To Do With It? is a cross-cultural rom-com about love and marriage, set between London and South Asia. According to the Daily Mail, Goldsmith was inspired by her marriage to the premier and the film seems to be her take on it.

Starring are Lily James, Shahzad Latif and Emma Thompson. However, seems like we finally have a Pakistani star making their international debut in it as well! Sajal Aly has been cast What's Love Got To Do With It? as confirmed by BBC Asian Network reporter Haroon Rashid.

Earlier, Rashid shared on Twitter, "It’s rumoured that Sajal Aly is currently in London shooting for Jemima Goldsmith’s production What’s Love Got To Do With It, directed by Shekhar Kapur. The film also stars Emma Thompson, Lily James and Shazad Latif. Sajal’s rep has been contacted for confirmation. Huge, if true!"

On Friday, confirming the same, the journalist penned, "Sajal Aly has joined the cast of What’s Love Got To Do With It, directed by Shekhar Kapur and produced, written by Jemima Khan." He added, "The rom-com stars Emma Thompson, Lily James and Shazad Latif and is currently being shot in London. Confirmed by Sajal’s agent Hamid Hussain."

We can't wait for this one!
