Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai: Harmless entertainer
Rating: 3 out of 5*
Starring: Ritesh Deshmukh, Jacqueline Fernandez, Ruslaan Mumtaaz, Sonal Sehgal and Vishal Malhotra
Director: Milap Milan Jhaveri
Rajesh Parekh (Ritesh) is an eternal loser in love since he was a child. Now working as a third assistant director (read clapper boy) of hotshot filmmaker Farah Khan (in a hilarious cameo) , Rajesh’s heart skips a beat when he sees his film’s hero, superstar Desh’s (Ruslaan) sister Natasha (Sonal Sehgal) for the first time.
Jacqueline Fernandez a.k.a. Jackie has learnt the tricks of the trade and done so really fast. Not to be disturbed by thousands of rumours and link up stories making the rounds, Jackie is smiling it all away and having fun in Bollywood.
“I truly feel that this is my time to prove myself. I can stand up and say that ‘Hey, I can actually do it’. Today, I am not just a pretty face standing or being there as an accessory”, says Jackie.
While one can sense that the makers of the film are going all out in establishing the character played by Jacqueline Fernandez, who plays the role of a lovable alien from Venus, one wonders if the film’s lead actor Ritesh Deshmukh was comfortable with the idea of working in a ‘woman oriented’ film? After all there have been quite a few films in the past where he has played the central character.”Par yahan par bhi kehna waala to ladka hi hai naa”, winks Ritesh in a mischievous tone while dismissing the insinuation, “Yes, you do say that ‘jaane kahan se aayi hai’ but the remark is made by the hero.
If original casting choice for ‘Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai’ would have remained intact then Ayesha Takia would have played the central protagonist in this Milap Zaveri directed film and Jacqueline Fernandez a.k.a. would have been the second lead. However, as luck would have it, Jackie ended up finding herself playing the main lead while Sonal Sehgal was roped in for the second lead.
What really happened?
“Nothing scandalous actually”, laughs Jackie who is happy with her decision of opting out when offered the second lead role to begin with, “I had originally auditioned for the character of Natasha (which is now being played by Sonal). I was keen to be a part of the film since I had loved the script. Still, I wasn’t sure though if I would be comfortable playing a second lead.”
According to sources, Sunil Manchanda, the producer, had been hunting for the perfect girl to appear alongside Kapoor and Dutt in the ad.
