New Delhi [India] 2017 has proved that 'content is king. Content is today defining box office success. Call For Fun ,the Bollywood film works on this very formula of contemporary and novel content.

Produced by Filmquest, Call For Fun scripted and directed by theatre veteran Janak Toprani, regarded by many as the master of comedies, will launch 9 newcomers including a villain this year, a bold and praiseworthy endeavour that mostly big banners like Yash Raj Films and Dharma Productions dare to experiment with.

The film is a screwball comedy film that also addresses socio psychological issues faced by the millennial generation who believe in the motto speed is the need, in a fun filled light hearted fashion.

Releasing on 6th October, Call For Fun will lock horns with Pahlaj Nihalani's Julie 2.

The new starcast includes Zaan Khan, Shubhangi Mehrotra, Charu Asopa, Prashant Kanaujia, Aashish Gade, Priyanka Arya, Swagata Naik Prasad Shikhare and Linesh Fanse.

Director and co-producer of the film Janak Toprani states, The starcast are people we have carefully picked, over a period of one year, depending on the characters they are to portray. They physically fit the characters perfectly as I believe that right casting wins 50 percent of the battle. The fresh talent is backed by a strong technical team that includes three national award winners.

Producer of the film Hardik Patel elaborates, I saw vast potential in backing a project that is not run-of-the-mill in the typical sense. Janak has successfully launched new faces in theatre and will do complete justice in launching newcomers on the 70mm screen. He has an eye to spot discerning talent.

Lead actor of the film Zaan Khan of MTV Splitsvilla fame excitedly adds on, The film is a roller coaster ride that is a total paisa vasool masala entertainer loaded with humour. Italso raises an issue that is pertinent to today's youth whose lives revolve around the cell phone. We have thousands of friends on FB and are on so many whatsapp groups, yet today we find more and more people prone to loneliness and depression. The content is totally original, and relatable. We are certain it will strike a chord with the audience.

Call For Fun also features theatre funnyman Bharat Dabholkar and Parmeet Sethi in supporting roles while the music is helmed by Lalit Pandit. The script deals with an edgy, coming of age laughathon revolving around the escapades of a young boy who takes over the reins of his father's business and faces a vortex of misadventures - mafia threats to client losses. In characteristic over ambitious, high adrenalin, youth style he ends up in a series of misadventures, only to come out victorious and in the process gain some real life experiences. (ANI)
