Dedh Ishquiya takes us through all seven
Khaujan (Naseeruddin Shah)and Babban (Arshad Warsi), the two romantic thieves are back in Dedh Ishqiya, sequel to the acclaimed and successful Ishqiya with their romantic adventures. And this time love will take them through the SEVEN STAGES OF LOVE … with the beautiful and dangerous Madhuri Dixit as Begum Para and Huma Qureshi as Munniya.
Producer Mansi Maroo says, “It is an interesting concept and has been beautifully portrayed too. Two of the characters, played by Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi, are having a conversation over a drink when Naseer saab educates him about the seven stages which are dilkashi (attraction), uns (attachment), mohobbat (love), akidat (trust), ibadat (worship), junoon (madness) followed by maut (death).”
“Vishal and Abhishek have a done wonderful job while depicting these stages.Also, Naseersaab too knows the language so it was easy for him to mouth those heavy-duty Urdu words. Arshad and others have done a lovely work on their dialogues and the final result has come out really well. Although there are some authentic words being used, Abhishek has made sure that it has some humour to it so that audience can understand them as well,” Mansi adds.
Other credits in Dedh Ishqiya include music by Vishal Bhardwaj, lyrics by Gulzar. The film is slated to release on January 10th, 2014. Dedh Ishqiya is produced by Vishal Bhardwaj Pictures Pvt. Ltd. and Shemaroo Entertainment
