Dharma Productions has two movies lined up for release in May 2013 – a small budget film titled ‘Gippi’ and Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’. The later has a huge star-cast and is one of the most-awaited releases in the first half of the year.
But very little is known about Gippi, a Sonam Nair directed film, which has been made on a budget of 4-5 crores (yes, you read that right, a 4 crore Dharma Production!).
To promote the first Karan Johar produced children’s film, Ishaqzaade star Arjun Kapoor was roped in to shoot a special promo.
A source close to the film says “Since Gippi is about an obese kid who doesn’t like to diet, the obvious choice was Arjun Kapoor – who also used to be overweight and hated going on a diet. Also, the film has no star value, so Karan will be asking a few of his star-friends from the industry to spread the word about the film.”
To find out what Gippi has in common with Arjun Kapoor – watch the promo below!
