The tinsel town Mumbai is a place where people come with big dreams and aspirations. The struggle is known to be the hardest in a city that never sleeps. One of the toughest things to do in Mumbai is to find a house. With landlords' weird terms and conditions, it becomes hard to match the parameters to convince a house owner to take in a new tenant. Taking this fact in a light mood, Ronnie Screwvala is coming up with a romcom about a young couple and their house-hunting adventures in Mumbai.
Ronnie is back with his upcoming project, titled as Love Per Square Foot. The film is helmed by Anand Tiwari, who wrote the script with web series Permanent Roommates’s fame Sumeet Vyas. The film features Vicky Kaushal and Angira Dhar in lead roles.
Vicky Kaushal, who was seen in award winning film Masaan will be seen for the first time playing a fun character in an entertaining film. "It’s a romantic story peppered with comedy about a boy and girl trying to find a house in Mumbai,” he said.
“I hadn’t been a part of a happy film before this so I had a ball shooting for this one. My character, Sanjay, is ambitious and street-smart,” he added.
The 28-year-old actor reminisced about his own life story. From a 10×10 room in Malad to a one BHK, followed by a two BHK and, finally to his present sprawling apartment in Andheri, the struggle has been long but fruitful.
Kaushal was seen previously in acclaimed films like Masaan which was directed by Neeraj Ghaywan and Anurag Kashyap's dark drama Raman Raghav 2.0.
The film features the megacity Mumbai. From SoBo to the suburbs of Mira Road, the film’s major part was shot in real locations.
“What I found most intriguing is that the lifestyle and milieu changed every 10 km. I remember shooting in the North of the city where there were many fishermen and nobody gave a damn about us. But shooting in Parel was a task as many people turned up to see us. Anand is a Matunga boy himself and knows the city like the back of his hand,” the actor further added.
When asked about his diverse roles, Vicky said “To be honest, after every film that I do, I want the mental space to go on. After Masaan I was enjoying the intense space and after Raman Raghav, I felt aggression had its own charm,” Vicky says.
