While several renditions of Shakespeare’s historic romance Romeo and Juliet have been attempted, trust Balaji Motion Pictures to do something different and daring. The prolific production house has announced “Romil and Juggal”, a hilarious and heart-warming re-imagination of Romeo and Juliet, except that both the protagonists are male!
A first-of-its-kind entertainer, “Romil and Juggal” looks to break stereotype as the coming-of-age romance, never seen before on Indian celluloid and explores what it means to stand out from the crowd of Macho India.
Says Danish, “When it comes to topics like these, in India at least, we have a tendency to go completely over the top. We either make slapstick humour, like Dostana (2008) or we go extremely serious about it like Onir’s film. My treatment will be realistic and not exceptionally dramatic.” He adds, “Though it may not make changes in the law, I believe that such kind of films brings about a certain social consciousness.”
