Madhur maintains realism in Dil Toh Baccha Hai Jee

Mumbai: After making a series of issue-based movies, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, who is foraying into the genre of romantic-comedy with `Dil Toh Baccha Hai Jee` says he has not departed from his signature style and has given a touch of realism to the issue of love in his new offering.

"It was after `Jail` that I decided to make a rom-com and not an issue based film. So, thought of making love as an issue this time," Madhur told PTI.

"I never got time to think about making other kind of films. So thought let`s take a break and make a glossy film with good songs. A good looking film but keeping realism to the core..no where I am digressing from the realistic part of my cinema," he said.

"It is a fun film. It is a romcom but it has a tinch of my style?realism. My signature is there in the film. It is no slapstick or brainless comedy film it is very much real," the three time national award winning director said.

Madhur, who is known for making hard-hitting cinema like `Fashion`, `Traffic Signal`, `Chandni Bar`, `Jail` and others is pretty confident about his latest outing.

"DTBHJ will have people laughing as they come out of the theatres. I have made people cry with high drama films. But this time around the audiences will have laughing tears," he said.

The film has an ensemble cast of Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Omi Vaidya, Shruti Hassan, Shazahn Padamsee and Shraddha Das in pivotal roles. .
