Bachna Ae Haseeno

Date: 08/08/2008
Bachna Ae HaseenoBACHNA AE HASEENO is a forthcoming Indian Bollywood film that stars Ranbir Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Minissha Lamba and Deepika Padukone in pivotal roles. Directed by Siddharth Anand, who earlier directed SALAAM NAMASTE (2005) and TA RA RUM PUM (2007), the film is expected to release on August 15, 2008.

The film follows the journey of Raj Sharma (Ranbir Kapoor) from the age of 17 to 30. He meets three girls at different stages of his life: Radhika (Bipasha Basu), a glamorous girl from Mumbai, Mahi (Minissha Lamba), a small-town girl from Punjab, and Gayatri (Deepika Padukone), an NRI from Australia. The film is about what he learns from life and from the three girls.

In April 2007, sources indicated that director Siddharth Anand had signed Ranbir Kapoor for the main lead in his next film. However, after indicating that the news was "mere speculation" and "absolutely untrue,"  he later confirmed that Kapoor was starring in his film.

The director was also in talks with actresses Preity Zinta, Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone and Amrita Rao for the roles in question but indicated that "it wouldn't be right to reveal their names till we sign them on the dotted line." In June 2007, Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone were finalised to play two of leading ladies but the former's role was later removed due to the film's story becoming too long. Actress Amrita Rao was also considered to play one of the leading ladies but opted out.

The heroines of the film share very limited time on screen together and therefore most of their parts were filmed separately. Deepika Padukone's portions were filmed in Sydney, Australia and the song Khuda Jaane was shot at various locations in Italy, including Venice. Minissha Lamba's portions, which were inspired by Yash Chopra's Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, were filmed in the similar locales of Amritsar, Mumbai, and Switzerland.

Continuing the tradition of showcasing the first look of their upcoming films with their latest release, Yash Raj Films showcased the first trailer of the film on April 25, 2008 with the release of Vijay Krishna Acharya's film Tashan and a second trailer was shown on June 27, 2008 with the release of Kunal Kohli's film Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic. Yash Raj Films usually does not spend much money on promoting its films, however, it has made an exception with Bachna Ae Haseeno. Instead of the usual promotion 2-3 weeks before a movie release, the production house has planned a new strategy with promotion over two months
