The film Total Siyapaa, produced by Reliance Entertainment, Friday Filmworks and & Pictures is slated to release on 7th March 2014.
Billed as an ‘urban-ist rom-com’ with the feel of a Brit-Asian cross-over, the film is a roller-coaster ride of hilarious mishaps which ensue when Pakistani rock-star Aman, played by the actor and musician Ali Zafar, meets his British-Sikh love interest Asha’s (played by Yami Gautam of Vicky Donor) battle-axe Punjabi mother (Kirron Kher).
Set in London, this wacky tale is a melting pot of cultures. The film gains pace when Aman travels to London to meet Asha’s parents who are conservative Indians and completely unwilling to go against their rigid beliefs. Aman’s life descends into Total Siyapaa when he attempts, albeit unsuccessfully at first, to impress his future in-laws with hilarious and at times completely cringe-inducing consequences! The film captures the differences between Indians and Pakistanis and hopes to foster a deeper understanding and togetherness between the two countries. Total Siyapaa also sees real life couple Anupam Kher and Kiron Kher come together on-screen for the very first time. Needless to say, there’s a lot to look forward to with this one!
