Jahnavi Dhanrajgir’s debut film Bolo Hau to hit cinemas on January 15
A love story set in Hyderabad, the film is directed by Tarun Dhanrajgir
Tarun Dhanrajgir’s film Bolo Hau is will be out in theatres on January 15. The trailer of the film was released online recently.
A love story set in Hyderabad, Bolo Hau will see editor-turned-actor Jahnavi Dhanrajgir making her on-screen debut. She has previously worked as an assistant director on Bollywood films like Gunday and Kick.
In Bolo Hau, Jahnavi is paired opposite Ankit Rathi, who has appeared in films like 3 Storeys and Fukrey.
Tarun, meanwhile, had played the role of Darcy in the Indian remake of Pride and Prejudice, which was aired on Doordarshan in 1985.
Speaking about Bolo Hau, Tarun says, “Simply put, Bolo Hau is a love story. But then, a love story has a typical format, so the question was how do we make it different. That’s when we decided to give it the flavour of Hyderabad. And since this is my home town, I was able to create authentic characters. Because they had to be real and humorous without being in your face. Our humour flows naturally. We were able to integrate the culture of Hyderabad into the story effortlessly. Even our lyrics have the flavour of Hyderabad.”
Talking about the project and working with her father, Jahnavi says, “We went through a couple of rounds of auditions before he actually told me I got the part. It turns out we make a pretty good father-daughter duo and it was a very creatively fulfilling collaboration. He’s a patient director who knows how to get what he needs from his actors and doesn’t stop till the performance is just right.”
Ankit describes Bolo Hau as a fun, light-hearted film. “I play a typical Hyderabadi boy in his early twenties, who falls in love with a girl named Rukhsar played by Jhanvi,” the actor says. “This character was fun to play because I had Hyderabadi Hindi dialogues which were new for me. I got to know a bit of Hyderabad through this film, so overall, it was a fulfilling experience for me.”
