Now when you know that this extraordinary director is pairing up with talented Abhishek and one of the most promising 2008 debutant Sonam Kapoor, you expect a wonderful movie that will both entertain you and leave you thinking.
That is exactly what Delhi-6 aims to do. Its about an American-born Indian returning to his roots in Chandni Chowk, Delhi. The movie's storyline seems different and unique. Afterall, post Swades, we have not seen many moving storylines about NRI's returning to their roots.
Abhishek Bachchan has recently started to shine through his acting abilities. Meanwhile, Sonam did a decent job with her debut, Saawariya. Senior actors such as Om Puri, Rishi Kapoor and Waheeda Rehman are also set to appear in the movie along with younger stars like Divya Dutta.
