The lead cast of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (ZNMD) is going great lengths to promote their upcoming film, quite literally. Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif, Farhan Akhtar, Abhay Deol and Kalki Koechlin will take off on a road trip from Mumbai to Delhi later this week, followed by a public concert upon reaching Gurgaon.
“Yes, we have decided to go on a road trip. Since the film is about a bachelor trip that the three boys decide to go on, it would be like reliving the experience all over again,” says producer Ritesh Sidhwani. The move has been planned in accordance with the storyline of the Zoya Akhtar film, in which the three male leads take off on a road trip. Three friends – Arjun (Hrithik), Imraan (Farhan) and Kabir (Abhay) go on a bachelor trip to Spain before the latter gets hitched.During the real life road trip, the stars will drive the car themselves as much as possible, because they want to get the feel of a raw journey. Over three days, they’ll cover a distance of about 1,500 kms by road.
En route to the Capital, the star cast will drive through several Indian states. In fact, they plan to stop in a few major states like Gujarat and Rajasthan to promote their film before moving towards their final destination.
As per plan, they will begin their journey on July 7 from Bandra, and are likely to reach Delhi by road on July 10, where they will perform at the concert in Gurgaon. For the uninitiated, Farhan – a few years ago – had performed at a live concert in Delhi to promote his acting debut, Rock On! (2008).
