After ‘Carry On Jatta 2′, which is considered to be one of the biggest hits in Punjabi cinema, Gippy Grewal is gearing up for another entertaining release. The comedy, ‘Mar Gaye Oye Loko‘, written by him and produced by his banner Humble Motion Pictures, promises a hilarious take on afterlife. Gippy says, ‚ÄúI was thinking of writing a light-hearted film on afterlife and how Yamraj would be performing his duties in today‚Äôs times. Since we all have become technologically advanced, will he, too, have updated himself? If yes, how would that play out? I put this crazy idea in movie format and what we got out of it is ‘Mar Gaye Oye Loko’.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúI have wanted to make this movie since a long time,‚ÄĚ says Gippy, adding that light-hearted films with a social message, like the ones that Rajkumar Hirani makes, have always interested him. He shares, ‚ÄúI want to make films that make people think and also laugh at the same time. ‘Mar Gaye Oye Loko’ has been made keeping that in mind.‚ÄĚ Directed by Simerjit Singh, the film, which also stars Binnu Dhillon, Sapna Pabbi and Jaswinder Bhalla, releases worldwide on August 31.
In ‘Mar Gaye Oye Loko’, Gippy has used a lot of special effects. ‚ÄúWell, I am doing a film in February, where we will be using a lot of special effects. So, I was interested in using them in this film as well. I have now understood how to go about it.‚ÄĚ The trailer of the film has already garnered many views online, and it shows how Gippy‚Äôs character is taken away by Yamraj in a case of mistaken identity and has to return to earth in a different body.
That‚Äôs not all. As an actor and producer, Gippy‚Äôs endeavour has been to take the Punjabi film industry to a greater high with every film. ‚ÄúThere are only four -five big producers in the Punjabi film industry. So, I make sure that with every film, I give viewers something different and take the industry to a newer height,‚ÄĚ he says.
Though busy with movies, Gippy also has a treat planned for the fans of his music. On his way to Mexico to shoot a music video, he says, ‚ÄúSince music has become a visual medium, I am planning a grand video, which will be shot in Mexico.‚ÄĚ
