At the trailer launch event of Vicky Kaushal and Sara Ali Khan starrer Zara Hatke Zara Bachke, producer Dinesh Vijan of Maddock Films said that all his films are rooted from middle class families since he belongs to a middle class family background.
Addressing the media after the trailer release, Vijan said, "I am from a joint family, 25 people used to live together in one house. When I needed to move out of it, I had to wait for five years before I could venture out. I am a middle-class man myself, I came here from outside, I didn't know anyone in this business, whether it was Badlapur (2015) or Hindi Medium (2017), Luka Chuppi (2019) or Mimi (2021), each one of my films chronicles middle-class tales. Maddock Films makes these films because we are middle class."
Continuing with his spirited defence of the film, Vijan said, "See, we haven't shown you the full trailer yet. Earlier, we used to spoon feed everything, but now I think audiences want more when they come to the theatre. You have only seen 10 percent of what the movie is about.
"Plus, Laxman Utekar is such a sensitive director. Do you think we aim to make fun? Have faith in me. When you see the movie, it will make you proud of who you are, an Indian, and the opportunity India has given you."
He continued, "I have done three movies with Laxman Utekar, and I don't think anyone other than Laxman can understand the true meaning of the entire family. We are missing him today. Laxman recently lost his father and that is why he couldn't be here with us."
Helmed by Laxman Utekar, the film revolves around a middle-class couple struggling in their marriage. Zara Hatke Zara Bachke also stars Rakesh Bedi, Anubha Fatehpuria, Neeraj Sood, Sharib Hashmi and Inaamul Haq in leading roles. It is scheduled to release in theatres on June 2.
