Surbhi Jyoti, who rose to fame with television shows like Naagin, is all set to mark her debut in Hindi films with Kya Meri Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai?. The film is directed by Ssaurabh Tyagi and will have an OTT release of Zee5. Opening up about the film, Jyoti talks about how excited she is for the film to finally premiere on the OTT platform.
Talking to Mid-Day, Jyoti said, “‘Sonam Gupta Bewafa hai’ went Viral and there were a lot of controversies, also initially when I heard that ‘Kya Meri Sonam Gupta Bewafa hai?’ is the title of the film I was very intrigued and It was the first so-called famous meme of India what was going to turn out into a film’s concept.”
She continued, “To be honest, I was and am very excited about it. It’s in a very ROM-COM Space, it has comedy, emotions and everything. Well knitted. I would say that the film absolutely justifies the title.” The film also features Jassie Gill in the lead role.
Earlier, while talking to Latestly, Jyoti revealed, “It feels awesome. From the moment, the trailer of Kya Meri Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai? was out, I have been receiving calls and messages, from people who are appreciating it and so I’m absolutely glad that they are loving it. I never wanted to do a film, just for the sake of it. So when Mukesh Chhabra, a very well-known casting director, called me and said that there is a film and he thinks I fit the part, I agreed.”
Talking about the film, the story revolves around a young man, Sintoo, who falls in love with Sonam Gupta, the town’s it-girl and a girl way out of his league. While Sintoo thinks that it’s impossible for him to get Sonam, the story takes an interesting turn when the girl reciprocates his feelings. What happens next is a series of comedy of errors where a line ‘Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai‘ written on a note goes viral and originates a series of comical events. Surbhi Jyoti and Jassie Gill’s movie arrives on Zee5 on September 10.
