Story of three guys stuck in 1999 - DK & Raj
The director duo said, “Our first Hollywood crossover project Flavors was received very well in USA among the Indian Diaspora. Our latest film is a Bollywood project titled 99. It is a smart comedy. Everybody from all age groups will connect with this movie. We titled it as 99 because the film is set in the year 1999. The events like y2K problem, Clinton’s India visit and the cricket scandals that rocked India will also play a role in this movie. Seeta Menon also one of the creative writers of the script. It took around eight months to script this movie. And we cast quite a few popular names from Bollywood. Mahesh Manjrekar said that he accepted the movie because he liked the grammar of the script.”
