'Anjaana Anjaani is my wife's idea'



Siddharth Anand, who gave us films like Salaam Namaste, Ta Ra Rum Pum and Bachna Ae Haseeno, is back with another love story Anjaana Anjaani (watch the trailer here).

The film stars Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor.

Fans wanting to know more got a chance to quiz the filmmaker about the movie and the new jodi. For those who missed the chat, here's what transpired.

Siddharth Anand says, Hi,guys! This is me, Siddharth Anand! Let's get on with it!

dsadsd asked, Hi, Anand... the trailer looks very interesting..hope the movie lives up to the promise.
Siddharth Anand answers,Yes, the response to the trailers are very positive, and yes the film God willing will not disappoint you!

ashish asked, Hey Anand, What is the best part you think is in Anjana-Anjanee
Siddharth Anand answers, It's a love story that you will see after a long time! Nowadays there's a trend to make rom coms, so this is a deviation from that in a sense.

sheeba asked, are u married
Siddharth Anand answers,Yes, very much! Happily ever after!

gagan asked, hey Sid, don't u think that the name of the movie is really bad?
Siddharth Anand answers, No, I don't think so, but next time I'll surely consult you my friend!

sheeba asked, hi when is the movie releasing.
Siddharth Anand answers, September 24! Please remember the date!

Rajesh asked, hi promos are very nice!!!
Siddharth Anand answers,Thank you!

Satya asked, hello siddarth..I enjoyed Salam Namaste and bachna e hasino..have not watched tara ram pam pam
Siddharth Anand answers,Thank you! You will not be let down with AA too my friend!

sak_amq asked, It appears as if it is on the same line as BAH was. Is it true?
Siddharth Anand answers, Why would I do that, huh?

sak_amq asked, The trailer of AA looks great. Can u tell what is the crux of the story?
Siddharth Anand answers, If I were an audience to AA I wouldn't want to know the story before I saw it, no?

sahil asked, hi siddharth, this question is a little funny. I'm 26, I look a bit like you (only slightly better!), am a lawyer and want to act. How about it?!
Siddharth Anand answers, Please get a nice portfolio clicked and start doing endless rounds of production houses, but if you look anything like me, You won't get it I promise you!
