Jackky Bhagnani in Priyadarshan’s next film

Ditching high speed chases a la Tezz, Priyadarshan’s next is about love. The film’s still untitled, but the director has signed Jackky Bhagnani for the lead.

The film’s about youngsters who fall in love and get married in haste, and then get divorced equally recklessly. South actress Priya Anand plays the lead with Jackky. Priyan has already started shooting in Mumbai and says,

Keeping the story in mind, I’m shooting in a natural environment. A few scenes have been shot in the rains too, and 30% of the film is done.

About Jackky, Priyan says,

I watched a song from Ajab Ghazab Love and the ease with which he danced impressed me. He wasn’t camera-conscious; he was quite at ease.

In the movie, Jackky plays a college student who, like boys his age group, experiences love.

But the real meaning of love is what my story conveys. Jackky has the boy-next-door, college kid look and he was just right for the part.
