Mumbai, Sep 10 (IANS) MTV, known for its hilarious concepts, has announced “Fully Faltoo Film Festival” with spoofs on three block buster hits - “Jodhaa Akbar”, “Taare Zameen Par” and “Chak De India”.The three spoofs titled as “Jadoo Ek Bar”, “Bechaare Zameen Par” and “Cheque De India” will have MTV VJ Cyrus Sahukar, Ayushmann Khurana and Ex-Roadie Shambhavi Sharma in the lead roles.
While Cyrus Sahukar will play the troubled child of “Taare Zameen Par” in “Bechaare Zameen Par”, VJ Ayushmann will play the hockey coach and Emperor Akbar in “Cheque De India” and “Jadoo Ek Bar”, respectively. Shambhavi Sharma will play the role of Jadoo Bai in “Jadoo Ek Bar”.
Speaking at the announcement here Tuesday, General Manager and Senior Vice President (Creative and Content) of MTV Ashish Patil commented tongue-fully-in-cheek: “MTV has always been known for its lack of good taste and twisted sense of humour. Here are three disastrous films that will prove it beyond any reasonable doubt”.
“The films have all the ingredients of a typical ‘masala’ movie in MTV style. We have shot them in HD format, the technology which is normally used for other main stream commercial films,” Patil told IANS.
The one-hour-long films will be telecast on three consecutive Saturdays at 7 p.m. starting Sep 20.
