Cloudy with No Chance of Chicken on the set of “Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana”

If you are getting hungry and lust after a good chicken recipe, you’ll have to wait until May 11th, because that’s when Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana with Kunal Kapoor and the stunning Huma Qureshi opens.  (and it better comes to the US… or you’ll hear me howl all the way to Mumbai)



the making of a movie about a secret chicken recipe:



….with a glimpse of heartthrob Kunal Kapoor (dunno what he says there, but it seems to strike a chord.  it’s something about sabzi. I think he says if there is no chicken help yourself to the vegetables…)



Dude, where’s the chicken for the crew?



Honestly, I was looking for a trailer and I’ll update it as soon as I see one. meanwhile I thought the making of a movie about a chicken recipe with a no show of chicken on the set is pretty funny in itself.  But let’s talk about the producer of this movie.

This is a new adventure for the versatile writer/director/producer Anurag Kashyap, who we owe some of the most interesting and intriguing Indian movies of our time, like Udaan, DevD, Satya,  No Smoking,  Water, Mixed Doubles , Honeymoon Travels, Black Friday  (and this is just a selection of my favorites…) He will direct, produce, or just write most memorable dialogues. He is one of Bollywood’s powerhouses.  Comedy is a relatively new field for him, even though there is a lot of humor in Mixed Doubles and even the dark and surreal No Smoking.  If you look at his filmography you wonder if this man ever gets to sleep….





this is also the year for first-time directors… here comes a new one,  Sameer Sharma,  who wrote the beautiful screenplay for Swades:
