To clear the air — Jatt Airways has nothing to do with any airline, air travel, air hostess, or airport, not even a runway. According to its director, Harjit Singh Ricky, it's a romantic comedy that has everyone on the run and caught in hilarious situations. "The film revolves around two sisters who want to marry two brothers. It is here that things get mixed up," says Ricky, who gives a sneak peak into the film that will release in February 2013.
With his last film titled Sirphire doing decent business at the box office, Ricky's trying his hand with the Punjabi flavour of the season — romcoms. "The genre began doing rounds while we were making Sirphire and so we decided, why not keep the next film in the same genre," says Ricky, who adds that the title of the film was suggested by singer-turned-leading man, Alfaaz. "Getting Alfaaz also translates into extra mileage for the film. Singers in Punjab already have huge fan following," reasons Ricky. Making a debut with this film, Alfaaz has had the acting bug for a while now and decided to make his entry with the most saleable character in the market today — the Jatt.
"Films such as Carry on Jatta and Jatt and Juliet have done amazing business. People have loved them and the word 'Jatt' sells. So, we decided to use it and I suggested Jatt Airways," says Alfaaz. With rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh as its music director and in a special guest appearance, the film also stars Padam, newcomer Samriti Khanna, Manpreet Kaur and Tulip Joshi, who has acted in three Punjabi films . While Kaur will be seen shaking a leg in an item number, Khanna is happy with her big Punjabi break. As for Joshi, who has tried her hand at regional cinema, language is no bar. "Once I have committed and said yes to a project, I am game for it," says Joshi, who divides her time between family business and films.
