Raise your hand if you dream of travelling the entire world, sometime in the future. Yes? Everybody? We thought so. 

It’s rather difficult to come across a person who wouldn’t want to travel the world. However, due to certain commitments and issues (mostly monetary), it remains a far-fetched dream. So, for most of us, resorting to movies that take us to exotic locations through the medium of cinema, compensates for our otherwise not-so-happening lives. But it isn’t just the location that does the trick.

When directors add interesting characters with tales of friendship and locations in a never-seen before manner, it makes for the perfect combination. It’s no wonder why movies like ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ and ‘Yeh Jawaani hai Deewani’ did wonders on the box office!

So if you have been feeling a void in that wanderlust-inspiring-movie genre, then here’s some good news. Kalki Koechlin and Richa Chadha are coming together in a movie that will take you on a roller coaster ride and inspire you to take that long-pending road trip with your friends.

‘Jia aur Jia’ is a story about two women, played by Richa Chadha and Kalki Koechlin that share the same name (no points for guessing this one)- Jia. 

But apart from their names, nothing and we mean absolutely nothing is similar.  Despite their differences, they embark on a life-changing journey.

The trailer starts off by showing us how the character of Richa Chadha, an uptight banker called Jia, meets her contrasting, happy-go-lucky personality i.e. Kalki’s character ‘Jia’. 

When it comes to road trips or any trip for that matter, one would obviously prefer going with like-minded people as your trip can go seriously wrong if you are stuck with a person who is exactly your opposite. But from what we can judge by the trailer, this movie will shatter this stereotype in the most interesting and fun way possible. 

The conflicts that arise between the two of them will bring a smile to your face and brighten up a dull day. From almost hating each other to becoming the best of friends and sharing their darkest secrets, the movie sure takes a refreshing look at female friendships while taking you through the beautiful country of Sweden. It somehow reminded us of the Kangana Ranaut starrer ‘Queen’ and the blockbuster ‘Zindagi Na MIlegi Dobara’ and we don’t mind this vibe at all.

Have a look at the trailer:

The film also stars actor Arslan Goni in a pivotal role.

Richa interacted with media persons here on Saturday during the on-location shoot of her upcoming film ‘Jia Aur Jia’.

Asked why she often lands up having arguments with the media, Richa said: “I don’t get angry. I am a straight-forward person and I always speak my mind, but I feel media is no less either.

“Since I am a straightforward person, people often assume that I am angry by nature especially when you play a character like Bholi Punjaban from ‘Fukrey’, who is very outspoken. So, it makes a certain kind of image of an actor, but I am not like that.”

Clarifying her stand, Richa said: “I feel image is not self-made. It’s not my problem that people don’t remember me for films like ‘Masaan’, but they only remember me for film like ‘Fukrey’. I have done both kind of films, so audience sees you in a certain kind of image and identify you with that kind of image only.

“If they don’t want to remember me in other kinds of role then I can’t do much about that. So there is no conscious strategy with that. If a film comes my way and I like the subject, then I do that film.”

The team of “Jia Aur Jia” has decided to revamp an old Hindi song “Jia ho… Jia oh Jia kuch bol do” from the 1961 film “Jab Pyar Kisi Se Hota Hai”, starring Dev Anand and Asha Parekh. The old classic was originally sung by Mohammed Rafi.

The new version of the song is composed by Nisschal Zaveri and is sung by Jyotika Tangri. It will also have bits from the original Rafi version as well.

Richa said: “It’s the remix of the old song and we are dancing in it. The subject of the film is living life to its fullest. It’s a slice-of-life film so the song is also peppy, happy and energetic.”

“Jia Aur Jia” is produced by Mirza N Askari and is presented by Blue Fox Motion pictures Pvt Ltd. Directed by Howard Rosemeyer, it will release on October 27.

Richa Chadha is no introvert and playing a meek character in the upcoming film, ‘Jia Aur Jia’, proved tough. She often felt like raising her voice when she had to remain quiet. The actor even observed her shy pals on how to go about it.

Richa’s co-star in the film is Kalki Koechlin. We will be saved of link-up rumours during the release of the chick flick. During the web show ‘Inside Edge’, Richa was rumouredly dating co-actor Angad Bedi. Now, it is reportedly her ‘Fukrey 2’ co-actor Ali Fazal she’s seeing. Who’s next?
