KLPD inspired by Roti...Makaan

KLPD inspired by Roti...Makaan
Vivek Oberoi and Mallika Sherawat-starrer Kismet Love Paisa Dilli [KLPD] seeks inspiration from yesteryear actor Manoj Kumar’s film Roti Kapada Aur Makaan.

‘The title of a film is the closest interpretation of the story. If Steven Soderbergh can keep abstract name like Sex Lies and Video Tapes, Dibanker Banerjee as Love Sex Aur Dhoka or Manoj Kumar as Roti Kapda Aur Makaan then why not Kismet Love Paisa Dilli,’ said director Sanjay Khanduri.

‘The thought that went into this title is actually inspired from Roti Kapada Aur Makaan - the three needs of a man, which in modern day has changed to Kismet, Love and Paisa
[money],’ he added.

Earlier, the film was supposed to be titled Gyaara Chaalis Ki Last Metro, but it was later changed.

‘Kismet Love Paisa Dilli fell in place, a strong connect to the three needs of today’s time in a youth’s life!,’ he added.

In Mumbai, Actor Vivek Oberoi, who is paired with Mallika Sherawat in the movie, has tried to challenge his acting skills in the film.

‘Some of my films are challenging, and some safe bets. With KLPD, I wanted to step out of my comfort zone. I knew it might not work and people might laugh at me, but I was ready for it,’ said the 36-year-old.

In KLPD, releasing Friday, Vivek plays a Delhi guy and says that it was not easy.

‘The whole character was totally new for me.He checks out girls, flirts with them. I had not been like this. In Mumbai, we are a little more polished,’ he said.

‘I had to learn all this, I had to go to the Delhi University. I spent time with the hostel boys. I learned their whole vocabulary and the way they talk,’ he added.
