New romcom is funny, well-made and directed by Shekhar Kapur – will it be a hit?
TALKING to us for the first time is star Lily James and Shazad Latif who both appear in the new British film, ‘What’s Love Got to Do With It?’ and directed by Shekhar Kapur.
This romantic comedy from the same company, Working Title, that made ‘Love Actually’ and ‘Four Weddings and Funeral’ returns to this genre with a modern contemporary romance that see James, as Zoe, and Latif as Kaz, initially misunderstand and disapprove of each other’s romantic choices.
Despite growing up together as neighbours, they have very different upbringings and feel quite differently about love and marriage – he is opting for an arranged/assisted marriage while she is dating and romancing without too much success and as a filmmaker gets the chance to follow Kaz to Lahore for the nuptials – find out what Lily and Shazad think about their roles and how they relate to them or don’t.
Look out for our interviews here with Jemima Khan, Shekhar Kapur, Nitin Sawhney & Naughty Boy, and Asim Chaudhry (Chabuddy G) and Jeff Mirza.
