EXCLUSIVE Baar Baar Dekho director Nitya Mehra: Katrina Kaif, Sidharth Malhotra film is one of a kin

Baar Baar Dekho director Nitya Mehra decided to cast Sidharth Malhotra andKatrina Kaif after watching their films Hasee Toh Phasee and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. The debut director — who has been an assistant on movies like Lif Of Pi, Don and Lakshya — thinks Baar Baar Dekho will be a ‘game changer’. Nitya, along with her lead actors, was in New Delhi to promote the film ahead of its release this Friday. In an exclusive chat with indianexpress.com, she spoke about why she chose this script and how this love story is different from its genre.

“It is purely because of the challenge and also because this is the genre of filmmaking I always wanted to experiment. I absolutely love challenges. I mean how many love stories are there. It is such a universal kind of genre to make. So what is it that we’re going to do differently. We are a young. We want to push the boundaries. We want to tell new stories and we found a great script by which we could tick all those things. And it is a high concept, one of its kind. That’s so exciting,” she said while sipping some herbal tea.
