Divya Khosla Kumar, wife of producer Bhushan Kumar, is making her directorial debut with the movie Yaariyan. Reportedly, the title was registered to Saif Ali Khan’s production house and when Bhushan spoke to him about it, Saif agreed to let them use the name for free. Divya says it was “generous” of the actor-filmmaker.
“When Bhushan heard the script, he thought Yaariyan would be the apt title for the film but when we checked the title was registered with Saif Ali Khan’s company. Bhushan spoke to him and without charging anything, he gave us the title free of cost. That’s really generous of him,” said Divya.
Meanwhile, the movie is being promoted with a bang; it will also be promoted on Salman Khan’s show Bigg Boss. “I know Salman and he is close to Bhushan. I am happy we are going to Bigg Boss to promote the film,” she said.
Talking about her husband and producer, Divya said “Without him, it was not possible. His support was incredible and the title was also suggested by him.”
Starring newcomers, Yaariyan is releasing Jan 10 next year.
