Govinda, Tusshar, Fardeen team up for film on marriage
y IANS, 6 April, 2009
Govinda, Tusshar, Fardeen team up for film on marriageThink of Govinda, Tusshar Kapoor and Fardeen Khan in a movie and one would expect a laugh riot. The three are coming together for Life Partner, a romantic entertainer dealing with the subject of marriage and what different men think of it.
“People conceive of a Govinda or a Tusshar Kapoor film as a full-on comedy. Instead, Life Partner has dollops of emotions and drama in it even though comedy is a thread that binds the characters together,” said a close associate of Rumi Jaffery, the director of the film.
“Tusshar is a simple young man who believes in arranged marriages. Fardeen, on the other hand, is a flamboyant character for whom love marriage means everything. As for Govinda, he is a Casanova of sorts and doesn’t believe in marriage at all,” the associate added.
Tusshar, who was last seen in comic hit Golmaal Returns, also said that Life Partner is not one of the laugh riots he is usually associated with. He says there is a sense of reality in the way the characters are defined in the movie.
“What you would see in Life Partner is something that happens to every husband and wife,” the actor said.
In the film, Tusshar plays a Gujarati based in South Africa while Prachi Desai plays his Gujarati wife from India. Genelia D’Souza is paired opposite Fardeen while there is a surprise element around the actress being paired with Govinda.
