Ishq Vishk: Rebound will explore instances of contemporary love
Titled Ishq Vishk Rebound, the film will reportedly take on love the contemporary way, with relatable instances of online dating. Adding to this, Tips Official’s announcement stated, “When relationships can be found on apps, and lost over a chat, you know that love needs an upgrade.”
The sequel marks the debut of Pashmina Roshan, daughter of Rajesh Roshan and cousin to Hrithik Roshan. Reflecting on this, she took to Instagram to say, “It feels like years of austerity and hard work is finally bearing fruits. I’m extremely excited, nervous and elated to bring to you my first experience on screen.”
Sharing the screen with her are Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham child actor Jibraan Khan as well as Mismatched star Rohit Saraf and Thappad actress Nailaa Grewal. Each took to social media to express their excitement. “I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everybody feels this- but It’s almost bittersweet when you actualise a dream you’ve seen for years. Today, for me it is. A huge part of who I am, and have been for as long as I can remember being, was this dream,” Saraf stated. “Dreams do come true,” Khan added.
This reboot will release 20 years after the first Ishq Vishq released.
