The film’s director Milind Dhaimade, producer Varun Shah, on Wednesday were present at the trailer launch of the film along with actors Barun Sobti, Shahana Goswami, Vishal Malhotra, Manvi Gagroo, Sandeep Sikand, Avinash Tiwary, Nakul Bhalla, and Jay Upadhyay. During media interaction, the director said it doesn’t matter if the film is Bollywood’s next ‘Lunchbox’ or not.
The film has been termed as the next Lunchbox from Bollywood in the UK (United Kingdom) when asked to comment on the same the Milind said, “Every filmmaker feels his film should turn out great. I actually did meet the guy who said that and I thought it was a great compliment. At 50 when you make a film you are not thinking about its box office you are thinking more about your personal dream and how many people see it. As long as more people get the chance to see the film it doesn’t matter if it turns out to be Bollywood’s next ‘Lunchbox’ or not. Of course I hope it becomes successful, people love it and hope it helps us make another film.”
Director/ Writer Milind was asked how the title of the film came into picture and did he already know what he wanted the title to be, he said, The original title was ‘Juhu pe Chalenge’ which was based on the idea that the group plays at Juhu beach on Sunday and that was the title as far as I was concerned. When we were applying for the registration of the film we couldn’t get it registered under ‘Juhu pe Chalenge’ because somebody had Juhu pe something.”
He further adds, “So then we had to think if we can’t register it under that name then what and we were a little skeptical to name it something else because we didn’t want people to think it is a sports film, which it isn’t. When we sat down to brainstorm we thought ‘ Tu hai Mera Sunday’ is a better title for the film and we already had made the song ‘Tu hai Mera Sunday’”
‘Tu Hai Mera Sunday’ is a story about five regular guys looking for space in Mumbai to play their favorite sport, football every Sunday and spend some free time with each other. Dodging the crowded bustle and choked streets of the city, these five friends find an outlet for their daily frustrations playing Sunday soccer on the posh Juhu Beach, which further leads into the slice of film Tu hai Mera Sunday.
The film is scheduled to release on 6th October.
