The trailer and song launch were followed by one-on-one media interactions with the film’s team that saw the cast and crew engage in enthusiastic discussions about the film.
Sanjay Mishra and Pankaj Tripathi’s camaraderie was evident in the course of the event. On playing the lead in a romantic drama Sanjay Mishra said “Hum actors Aloo hain, mutton ke saath, sabzi ke saath, kisi ke saath bhi mix ho jaate hain.”Pankaj Tripathi’s anecdote, “Par iss baar Aloo, solo aa raha hai.” was enough to crack up everyone when he added, “lekin thode jeere ke saath… aur woh flavour dene wala jeera main hoon iss film mein.”
Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain is a quirky film, set in rustic Varanasi and boasts of real-life characters and situations one can relate to, especially for those who are or have ever been in love. Presented by NFDC and produced by Manav Malhotra of Drumroll Pictures in association with Bunty Khaan’s Shiny Entertainment. The film is scheduled for a pan-India theatrical release on 18th May 2018.
The event was attended by actors Sanjay Mishra, Ekavali Khanna, Shivani Raghuvanshi, Anshuman Jha, Pankaj Tripathi, director Harish Vyas and producer Manav Malhotra and the lyricist Yogesh among others.
Actor Sanjay Mishra present at the event says, “AMKH is a film that talks about the common man and what love and relationships mean to him. In the daily rat race love gets lost, and one lands up taking relationships for granted. Sometimes one may not get a chance like Yashwant but if one does, you should give it your all, Unbelievably I realized post shooting this film and I did tell my wife- I love you”
Actor Pankaj Tripathi said, “ I play a lovable character of Feroz, It has been a refreshing change for me, a leap from being a gangster and a bad guy. This is the first time I am playing a romantic character. Feroz is an endearing and a lovable role that has touched me immensely and I am sure will move the audiences too. The special part about the role is that I am in the film with Sanjay Mishra who plays a romantic role in the film in the lead.”
Actor, Anshuman Jha – “Love is universal. AMKH is relevant and entertaining in the same measure because the one thing the younger generation can definitely share with the elder generation is the ease of expression. It’s a love story for all ages. You should just say it.”
Actor, Shivani Raghuvanshi – “The younger generation can easily express themselves. However, it was not the same for my parents, this is exactly why I feel that this film is extremely relevant for people like us so that we don’t become like them.”
Harish Vyas, the director of Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain said, “AMKH will always be a special film for me not because it’s my Hindi debut but because it’s a subject that I have grown up with. When I used to see my parents in a dry and non-communicative relationship I was unable to imagine a happy picture of a marriage. But with this film I assure you that happiness is possible and easily achievable, even after years in a marriage.”
