Love can’t be defined but it can certainly be divided into stages.
Director Abhishek Chaubey and writer-producer Vishal Bhardwaj thought it was a good idea to incorporate seven stages of love in their forthcoming sequel of Ishqiya.
Producer Mansi Maroo says, “It is an interesting concept and has been beautifully portrayed too. Two of the characters, played by Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi, are having a conversation over a drink when Naseer saab educates him about the seven stages which are dilkashi (attraction), uns (attachment), mohobbat (love), akidat (trust), ibadat (worship), junoo (madness) followed by maut (death).”
Both the director as well as the producer of the film happen to be good with Urdu. “Vishal and Abhishek have a done wonderful job while depicting these stages.
Also, Naseersaab too knows the lingo so it was easy for him to mouth those heavy-duty Urdu words. Arshad and others have done a lovely work on their dialogues and the final result has come out really well.
Although there are some authentic words being used, Abhishek has made sure that it has some humour to it so that audience can understand them as well,” Mansi adds.
