E xpect the unexpected this time from Madhur Bhandarkar. The director, known for his films based on reality, has now decided to tickle your funny bone with “Dil To Baccha Hai Ji” releasing on January 28. “But unlike what is said for other comedies, I request the audience not to leave their brains behind but bring them to the theatre,” says Bhandarkar, adding, “The comedy is neither over-the-top nor is the treatment vulgar. It's a simple, feel-good film.”

“Dil To Baccha Hai Ji”, inspired by the “Ishqiya” song, is the story of three naïve men who are roommates. Ajay Devgn plays a 38-year-old going through a divorce, gym instructor Emraan Hashmi is a free spirit, and Omi Vaidya is an idealistic no-sex-before-marriage man. How the three and their lives change after falling in love with three girls is what the film is about. “For a change I thought I should make a guy flick unlike all my other female-oriented films. Most people ask me why a comedy but those who know me and have worked with me know about my sense of humour. I may be making the most serious film, yet I keep cracking jokes on the sets. .

. Ask him why his title is taken from a song and he frankly admits that he thought it would work well for the movie Harshikaa Udasi
