After the super duper success of his high school musical Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, Abbas Tyrewala is back. And this time its supposed to be a mature love story.  Jhootha Hi Sahi stars John Abraham, Pakhi Tyrewala (Abbas’ wife and co-writer) , Raghu Ram and a bunch of friends, like in JTYJN. Has music by A R Rahman. Check it out.

Here is the trailer of a new film called Emotional Atyachar – The film and two posters of other two new films – Jhootha Hi Sahi & Action Replayy.

Emotional Atyachar – the film is directed by debutant Akshay Shere and stars Ranvir Shorey, Vinay Pathak, Mohit Ahalawat, Kalki Koechlin, Abhimanyu Singh and Ravi Kissen.

Jhootha Hi Sahi is directed by Abbas Tyrewala and stars John Abraham and Pakhi (Abbas’s wife). But why is Pakhi missing from the first poster ? Isn’t this her big debut ? Any conspiracy theory ? Action Replayy is by Vipul Shah and stars Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

Pakhi & Abbas TyrewalaHis debut feature Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na went on to become big hit. We thought it was strictly ok, serving the bollywood’s oldest  cliche ek ladka aur ladki dost nahi ho sakte hai kya! But then, when you cater to U-25 with popcorn and cola flick, High School Whimsical is also superhit.

Abbas Tyrewala was well known writer before he turned to direction. Ashoka (D), Maqbool, Chupke Se, Munnabhai MBBS (D), Main Hoon Na (S&D), Salaam Namaste (D), Shikhar and De Taali. And now he is busy directing 1-800-Love, written by his wife Pakhi who also stars in it, opposite John Abraham. If the gossipmongers at Producer Madhu Mantena’s office are to believed, Tyrewala has been paid Rs 5 crore as direction fees for the film! woohoo!

Post JTYJN, Tyrewala is flying quite high. If you thought Farah and her brother Sajid Khan are loudmouths, you need to attend a session of Tyrewala Talks! Gyaan-guru, who has solutions for everything. And now to help Tyrewala, Pakhi’s full family is involved in the making of the film. Her mother, who is a drama teacher, is coaching John Abraham for getting the dialogues right. Knowing Abraham’s acting talent, we surely reccomend few more teachers. Also, Pakhi’s brother has come onboard. Not sure, in which capacity.

Producer Mantena ia making sure that every demand of the director, his dear biwi and his biwi‘s family is met!

PS – We are yet to confirm this. Have heard that 1-800-Love is not Pakhi’s big screen debut. She was in Hansal Mehta’s film Yeh Kya Ho Raha Hai. If anyone can confirm it, as we haven’t seen the film.

raghu ramIf anyone ever made a career out of shouting, screaming, and abusing others, its MTV Roadies’ Raghu Ram! (even Rakhi Sawant score more, her skin show counts) And if someone ever got lucky by just being a twin brother, without any individual identity,  its Raghu’s twin Rajiv Laxman who was in the last season of MTV Roadies.

Now the news. According to Mid-day, Raghu Ram is soon going to make his big screen debut in Abbas Tyrewala’s 1-800-Love. Raghu plays John Abraham’s freind in the film and is paired opposite Manasi Scott.

For those of who dont know, Raghu is married to Sugandha Garg (see pic) who was in Abbas’ directorial debut Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. Woohoo….biwi in Abbas’ film and hubby in Abbas’ biwi film! 1-800-Love is written by Pakhi, Abbas’ wife and she also plays the lead opposite John. Too much of hubby-wifeys!

BTW, here is the dope on 1-800-Love. Abbas Tyrewala is writing the 29th drfat of the script!  Thats Ripley’s Believe it or not guys!  

Yes, believe it or not! Abbas Tyrewala has just finished the 20th ( yeh yeh 20th) draft of his next script 1-800-Love.  After the super duper success of his debut film Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, he knows that there is huge expectation from his next film. And so, he doesnt want to take any chance.

The script is written by his wife Pakhi, who also stars in the film opposite John Abraham.

Mumbai Mirror has a story on how Salim Khan helped Abbas fine tune the script. Here is the link
