After "Rang De Basanti," director Rakeysh Mehra is back with a movie reportedly inspired from his childhood growing up in the Chandni Chowk area of Old Delhi. Abhishek Bachchan plays the American-born Roshan, who brings his ailing grandmother played by Waheeda Rahman back to India. Expecting a quick trip, Roshan doesn't realize it will soon turn into his longest journey ever. Featuring an ensemble cast, the makers haven't released many details of the story but you can expect the ancient walled city known as Chandni Chawk to be a central character. The title is inspired from the pin code of that area in Delhi. The director considers Delhi a microcosm of India. After a successful debut with "Sawariya," Sonam Kapoor stars as the female lead. Rishi Kapoor plays a wealthy Nawab-type character who befriends Roshan. Also paramount is the film's music, yet another brilliant offering from maestro A.R. Rahman.
