CONFIRMED: Sajal Ali has joined the cast of What’s Love Got To Do With It, directed by @shekharkapur and produced & written by @Jemima_Khan. The rom-com stars Emma Thompson, Lily James & Shazad Latif and is currently being shot in London. Confirmed by Sajal’s agent Hamid Hussain.
What’s Love Got To Do With It is written and produced by Jemima Goldsmith while Indian filmmaker Shekhar Kapur will be directing the project.
Sajal Aly is yet to make an announcement in this regard as the actress has not posted anything about her first Hollywood project on social media, which maybe because its still too early in the production.
The news was also confirmed the cast of the upcoming project through a retweet.
The movie is set between London and South Asia, exploring cross-cultural conflicts of love and marriage while being described as “a story of identities,” by the director, Shekhar Kapur.
“It’s about cultural clashes and it’s a comedy, but it’s about hiding behind an identity and how identities can become tribal, and how tribalism can lead to clashes and fundamentalism. It’s a romcom, but based on this fundamental idea of people adopting identities out of fear of marginalization.” Kapur said while talking to Variety back in November 2020.
