After shooting non-stop through an Australian schedule and then a long schedule of the film in Delhi, Boney Kapoor's Harman Baweja-Genelia D'souza starrer directed by Anees Bazmi finally has a name.
It's titled It's My Life.
Says Harman, "That's the name Anees Sir has chosen. It may change. But we all like like. Because it's about this rich subdued boy who's petrified of his girlfriend's father Nana Patekar and stands for hours outside her house gathering the courage to face him. It's all about how the boy finally takes charge of his life."
Incidentally Harman's co-star in It's My Life is Genelia D'Souza, a hot favourite in the South who made her debut five years ago in Hindi cinema with Tujhe Meri Kasam.
She also pairs with Imran Khan who makes his debut in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na on same day as Harman in Love Story 2050.
We hear that the star-son has also suffered a sun-stroke. And it's all because of being exposed to the sun for long hours.
"Yes, I've suffered terrible headaches and a sun stroke. It comes from being made to do what I hate the most. Shooting long hours in the sun. For the last one week I've been indulging in the national passion.
Cricket. And I'm not talking about watching IPL matches. I've been playing cricket in the scorching sun for my film Victory where I play a national-level cricketer."
Harman says he has a major quibble with the sun. "I can't stay out in the sun for more than four weeks. In this case there was no time for me to rush back into my van between shoots.
We shot almost non- stop to catch the light. On Saturday I shot almost continuously from 7 in the morning till dusk. And the result is I'm sick."
Harman earlier played cricket in Australia with international legends of the field like Brett Lee.
"But now we've been shooting my character's early days. It's a league match showing me trying to get in for the Ranji trophy.
This is my introduction, ek terah se. And I've more cricket scenes to shoot in the sun. I'm looking at the mirror as I speak to you. I can't recognize myself!"
