rrfan in a slice-of-life love story — seems like rea­son enough for peo­ple to throng cin­ema halls to watch Qarib Qarib Singlle. Here’s more: The Tanju Chan­dra di­rec­to­rial is be­ing touted as a first-of-its-kind film on on­line dat­ing. It also marks Malay­alam ac­tor Prav­tahy’s de­but in Hindi cin­ema.

“Qarib Qarib Singlle is a unique love story that stars Ir­rfan in a dif­fer­ent, fun role. It has been made keep­ing in mind the con­tem­po­rary taste of au­di­ences. We had a lot of fun mak­ing it, and are sure that the au­di­ences will en­joy it as much,” says Su­jay Kutty, busi­ness head, Zee Stu­dios.

The chem­istry be­tween Ir­rfan and Par­vathy’s char­ac­ters Yogi and Jaya has been ap­pre­ci­ated by the au­di­ence. And Ir­rfan shares that Yogi and the premise drove him into do­ing the film. “When it was writ­ten on pa­per, this role was so as­ton­ish­ing and amus­ing, I won­dered how I’d make it my own. Now that the shoot is over and I’m able to see him on screen, I want to keep him alive for­ever,” says Ir­rfan.

As for Tanuja, she’s ner­vous. “It’s an irony that the word re­lease which a di­rec­tor works for years to achieve is one of the most scary stages of film­mak­ing! All the ef­fort of a team builds up to this one day. I hope the film brings smiles to peo­ples’ faces,” she says.

The film re­leases to­day.
