In the video, Imtiaz gives out reasons to watch Laila Majnu which is directed by his brother Sajid Ali. “This movie has no stars. The lead actors are new and do not belong to any filmy family. A person who thinks more from brain and less from the heart, I don’t how he will like the movie. But if you are a little mad, you have your own opinions, you are not perfect, can make mistakes and can fall in love, then you must watch this film as this movie has characters like you. Both Laila and Majnu are just like you. This story has less logic and more passion. Even the people who have made this film are themselves quite mad. So, if you are passionate, you will see yourself in this film.”
The film is presented by Imtiaz Ali and produced by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures and PI Films.
Imtiaz Ali last helmed Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma-starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal which released to tepid response in August last year.
