Preity’s Ishq got lost in Paris, apparently. Au revoir so soon?


What Happens In Paris Stays In Paris…

Ishq in Paris, kua hua?  It’s easy to get lost in its Parisian charm and not finding your way back to your point of origin.  Happened to me. We all can relate to it. Love makes you stupid. But for once it’s a movie that got lost. We have sent search troops out…. European trained whatsmore!! Nada.

Ishq in Paris could not be found.

Now that’s a real shame

 

because we all love Preity Zinta and she hasn’t graced us with her lovely screen presence for A WHILE!!!

While I suspect that her love interest in the film has not been available for  the100,000 reshoots, necessary to save the film.. well, I am a bit mean here because maybe he’s fantastically underrated as an actor, it could be any other reason too.

Financial, couldn’t find a distributor? What could have been going wrong? Maybe we should put Aamir Khan, aka Inspector  Sekhawat, on the case to scare the ghosts out of this project and get it on screen.

Will Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana be shown in the USA? place your bets…


Hallelujah, the trailer is out. And the release date: November 2nd.

I have been feverishly awaiting the return of Kunal Kapoor to the silver screen. But now I am getting worried that BigCinemasUSA may not bring Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana to my shores in NY, since it coincides with Ishq in Paris which stars long lost Preity Zinta, who they will probably favor. Just guessing.  I am happy to see her, too, don’t get me wrong, but I much rather indulge in a foodie movie produced by Kashy with heartthrob Kunalji. Much more interesting. Well, I am not giving up hope yet.

This past week has seen the release of several wonderfully entertaining Indian movies, OMG, Aiyyaa, English Vinglish.. and I pray they made good box office numbers. It will increase the likelihood that more cinemas will be willing to take the risk of showing some smaller budget Indian movies.

Cast: Kunal Kapoor, Huma Qureshi, Rajesh Sharma
Directed By: Sameer Sharma
