Imitiaz and Ekta united to recreate ‘Laila-Majnu’
Imitiaz Ali and Ekta Kapoor have teamed up to re-create the eternal love story ‘Laila- Majnu’. Ekta confirmed it with a tweet, ‘Excited to recreate the epic love story, #LailaMajnu with master storyteller Imtiaz Ali. @balajimotionpic #ImtiazAlisLailaMajnu #LailaMajnuOn4thMay.’
However, Imitiaz Ali will not direct the movie but co=produce it with Ekta Kapoor. This movie would be the directorial debut of Imtiaz’s brother, Sajid Ali.
Laila-Majnu was first release in 1976 starring Rishi Kapoor and Ranjeeta. The movie was a blockbuster with terrific music given by Madam Mohan and Jaidev. Music of the movie became the prime reason for the success of Laila-Majnu back then.
Ekta and Imitiaz wanna recreate that aroma through this movie. They would need a great music to connect with the Millennial. Let’s see whom they will give their music to.
