Sanjay Khanduri’s film ‘Kismet Love Paisa Dilli’ is inspired by the veteran filmmaker’s ‘Roti Kapada Aur Makaan’


This might be the most unusual combination in terms of inspiration, but it is true. The title of director Sanjay Khanduri’s film ‘Kismet Love Paisa Dilli’ is inspired by Veteran filmmaker Manoj Kumar’s hit film, ‘Roti Kapada Aur Makaan’. “Title of a film is closest interpretation of the story as per the director. If Steven Soderbergh can keep abstract name like ‘Sex Lies and Video Tapes’, Dibanker Banerji as ‘Love Sex aur Dhoka’ or Director-actor Manoj Kumar as ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’ then why not ‘Kismet Love Paisa Dilli’. The thought that went into this title is actually inspired from ‘Roti Kapda aur Makan’ the three needs of a man which in modern day has changed Kismet, Love and Paisa,” says Sanjay.

Earlier the film was supposed to be titled Gyaara Chalis Ki Last Metro, but the title was later changed to KLPD. “Earlier the film was supposed to be titled Gyaara Chalis Ki Last Metro, mounted as a sequel to ‘Ek Chalis Ki Last Local’. But the distributors felt a little differently about the title and said that for a film that is more than triple the budget of Ek Chaalis… the title should be more impactful. Keeping their opinion in mind we looked at what we had in the film with us. We realised that the film is about destiny, it talks about money and love in Delhi. So Kismet Love Paisa Dilli fell in place. And the strong connect to the three needs of today’s time in a youth’s life,” explains Sanjay.
