Sony MAX to air ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ on 27 Aug
MUMBAI: Sony MAX will premiere ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’, a love story set in the 1980s, on 27 August at 12 noon.
Directed by debutant Akshay Roy, the film features Parineeti Chopra and Ayushmann Khurrana in lead roles. It narrates the tale of Abhimanyu Roy (Ayushmann Khurana), who feels discouraged with the lack of critical appreciation for his work and returns back home to his roots in Kolkata to write more meaningful literature.
Roy decides on a story which was three years in the making. He had been experiencing writer’s block trying to get the story down and he knows exactly what this writer’s block is – Bindu (Parineeti Chopra). How does one contain this unpredictable, larger than life, live wire in the pages of a book? So where should Abhimanyu begin?
Said Khurrana, “This movie doesn’t only star Parineeti and Ayushmann but also Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mohammed Rafi because we have those songs of the year and they have certain nostalgic value. Each and every song has a memory attached to our lives in the film which makes it very special.”
Commented Chopra, “It’s one of the sweetest films I have worked in. There is so much nostalgia in the film, the music, situations, Kolkata and this girl Bindu is totally mad. I completely enjoy playing such characters.”
