Applause Entertainment and Shoe Strap Films have announced Jab Khuli Kitaab, a romantic comedy-drama starring Pankaj Kapur and Dimple Kapadia. Directed by Saurabh Shukla, the film is based on his play of the same name. 

The story follows an older couple seeking a divorce after fifty years of togetherness. The film deals with 'the dysfunctionality of relationships and its impact on family, with dollops of humour and heart'. Pankaj and Dimple play the leads, with Aparshakti Khurrana, Samir Soni, Nauheed Cyrusi, and others in the supporting cast. 

Saurabh shares, "Jab Khuli Kitaab is very close to my heart and I'm thrilled to have stalwarts like Pankaj Kapur and Dimple Kapadia as my leads. The film is a rom-com with a couple in their 70s. You see them doing what any teenager will do in their relationships. The film is a joyride where you laugh, fall in love, and cry with this unique couple. I’m thankful to Sameer Nair for supporting me and making this happen.”

Sameer Nair, CEO, Applause Entertainment, says, “This film disrupts the usual tropes and reflects how love at any age can turn into a messy and inflammable affair. The script is sharp, observant, and hilarious in equal measure, complemented by our wonderful ensemble of actors, led by the remarkable Pankaj Kapur and Dimple Kapadia."

Set in Uttarakhand, the film has recently wrapped production in Ranikhet.
