Farhan-Zoya bringing us another friendship tale, 'Kho Gaye Hum Kahan'
Another tale of friendship, another set of new pals! New age stars, Ananya Panday, Siddhant Chaturvedi, and Adarsh Gourav, are coming on board a vehicle that will explore the different facets of buddyhood. Titled Kho Gaye Hum Kahan, the film will be backed by the two production houses that are known for these kinds of films, Excel Entertainment and Tiger Baby Films. Here's more.
'Find your Friends and you won't need followers'
While Excel Entertainment is owned by Farhan Akhtar and Riteish Sidhwani, Tiger Baby Films is the production house of Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti. Debutant Arjun Varain Singh will be helming this light-hearted drama. While announcing the film, the makers and the actors involved highlighted its theme, which is, "Find your Friends and you won't need followers," drawing a reference to social media platforms.
A one-minute-long teaser was also dropped along with the announcement. With the song Kho Gaye Hum Kahan from the film Baar Baar Dekho playing in the background, it shows the bonding between the three friends as we have usually seen in the films offered by Excel and Tiger Baby. Notably, the Katrina Kaif-Sidharth Malhotra critical dud, a 2016 release, was also produced by Farhan.
