After helming issue-based films like I Am Kalam and Jalpari: The Desert Mermaid, Nila Madhab Panda is ready for his first commercial outing, Love Is Not Mathematics.
The film begins in Delhi and has the lead protagonist, Sahil Anand (of Student Of The Year fame) travel to Manali with friends, truck drivers, sex workers and an older couple (played by Parvin Dabas and Oriya actress Anu Choudhary), who rekindle his passion for life and love. Keeping the subject of a road journey in mind, the makers intend to shoot the film on Delhi-Manali highway and the Himachal in the next two months.
Panda says, "I chose Manali as a location because I wanted to capture the snow clad landscape." He adds further, "Love Is Not Mathematics is my coming of age film. The idea is to find our own love story lying dormant in each one of us."
Apart from Anand, this film also stars Erica Fernandes and Preet Kamal and the story is penned by Sanjay Chouhan. Since it is a musical, this film will feature six songs penned by lyricist Protiqe Mojoomdar (I am Kalam, Jalpari...) and debutant music directors Bishakh-Kanish.
