MUMBAI: Time and again Farhan Akhtar has caught the fancy of many fans interested in poetry with lyrical lines on the social networking sites. However, in his upcoming film, Shaadi Ke Side/Effects the actor-director-producer plays a struggling musician Sid who takes up the job of a jingle writer-composer to pay his bills.
However, since Farhan loves music and his guitar, the role was special to Farhan and thus he gave a spin to the featured jingles.
Director Saket Chaudhary and the brand team of Skore condoms, an in-film sponsor in Shaadi Ke Side/Effects whose jingle Farhan’s character in the film was supposed to sing in the film, were in for a pleasant surprise when Farhan added his own lines to the jingle. He included the line – ‘I love my mother-in-law!’ referring to Rati Agnihotri who plays Vidya’s mother in the film.
While this part has now been edited out of the film, Producer Rangita Pritish Nandy says: “Watch out for it in the gag-reel at the end of the film!”
She adds: “This was massively funny while we were shooting! The whole unit cracked up and we almost kept it in the film as well but then decided against it. But watch out for it in the gag-reel at the end of the film which also features the reprised version Tauba Mein Pyaar Karke Pachtaya now re-christened Tauba Mein Vyaah Karke Pachtaya!”
Shaadi Ke Side/Effects, produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and Pritish Nandy Communications, releases on February 28, 2014.
