Anurag Kashyap's next directorial starring Alaya F and Karan Mehta is titled Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat.
The film will have its world premiere at the ongoing 2022 International Marrakech Film Festival.
The director said, "I am thrilled to present the world premiere of my film Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat' at the Square, at the Marrakech Film Festival. The film is a labour of love, and it's been fun putting it together with amazing collaborations from Amit Trivedi and our lyricist Shellee and the colourful palette of my DoP Sylvester Fonseca and our production designer Shazia and the whole team, especially the energy of its young leads."
A love story centered on the Gen Z, Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat took shape over the years with Anurag's conversations with his daughter, Aaliya.
"To realise that we are migrants to the world today that they (the Gen Z) are a native to. This feels like a new inning and I am happy that it's starting with this film," Anurag said.
In the past, Anurag has directed love stories like Dev D (2009) and Manmarziyaan (2018). Both of those films featured music by Amit Trivedi.
