Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions is making a slight shift from his usual lovey dovey genre and is coming up with an out and out kids movie titled Gippi.
Directed by debutante Sonam Nair, the movie looks fresh and interesting. It is a story of an overweight child who hates dieting, a problem every youth faces today.
The film doesn’t feature big stars and so, Arjun Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra have been roped in to shoot special promos.
Apparently, Gippi is a story based on the directors real life, her unpleasant experiences — the bullying and teasing by classmates and her parents’ insistence that she diet.
Most of the shoot for the film was done in the scenic locales of Simla, while some portions are now being completed in Mumbai. The movie is set to release on May 10.
