Sooraj Barjatya’s Isi Life Mein is quite unlike his previous films, Maine Pyar Kiya and Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! The producer-filmmaker has allowed the use of a few swear words in the film, at the insistence of his niece Vidhi Kasliwal, who is the director of the movie.
As ‘Isi Life Mein’ is a new-age love story, Vidhi felt that the characters’ dialogues should be as close to real as possible. But her insistence on including a few “bold” dialogues lead to arguments between Vidhi and the Barjatya elders. Fortunately, uncle Sooraj Barjatya came to Vidhi’s rescue as soon he saw sense in the young director’s point of view. He actually mediated between the two ‘warring’ generations and resolved the dead lock. Finally everybody came around and Vidhi got her way.
An insider confirms, “Although Sooraj has a record of making clean, family entertainers, he didn’t interfere with Vidhi’s creative ideas but instead supported her creative ideas. Vidhi, on her part, firmly believed that her debut film should mirror the way today’s youth speak to each other.”
Sooraj agrees that the film won’t be as “pure” as his earlier hits, it will still be a family entertainer.
‘Isi Life Mein’, produced by Sooraj Barjatya, is the debut for lead pair, Akshay Oberoi and Sandeepa Dhar. The film releases on 24th December, 2010.
