Talking about the World Television premiere, Jackie Shroff said, “I walked into this project with a clean slate, I let the director and producer chalk out my character the way they had visualised it to be. All I knew was that I wanted to be a part of this fresh story. So many years of my life I have done action, drama and now I want to make people laugh with my comedy. Hello Charlie is a light-hearted, fun and de-stressing film that you can enjoy with a tub of popcorn and your whole family. Now with the World Television Premiere of Hello Charlie on Zee Cinema, this mad comedy will be available to the entire nation”
Excited about the World Television premiere, Aadar Jain said, “I’m thrilled that my film, Hello Charlie is premiering this Independence Day, the 15th of August on Zee Cinema. It’s a madcap entertainer with a very special and unique concept of a boy and a gorilla on a fun filled road trip. I had a blast working on the film, it was masti every day on the sets with Jackie sir, Rajpal sir, Shlokka and the entire cast&crew. The film is made for families & children and I’m sure it’ll make the audiences laugh so don’t forget to catch it!”
Thrilled about the World Television premiere, Shlokka Pandit said, “I always wanted to be a part of this industry and I couldn’t have asked for a better debut film and team. It was such an enriching experience to be a part of a story that appeals to everyone and has fun elements that stay with you. Hello Charlie is an out-and-outcomedy with some of the laughter kings of the industry, a great director and the super talented Aadar. It was like a dream come true for me. The film entails craziness, drama and entertainment. I am sure everyone will love watching it, especially the kids. Tune in to Zee Cinema for the World Television Premiere of Hello Charlie.”
Talking about the film, Pankaj Saraswat said, “Toto, the Gorilla is the reason why I was so kicked about making this film. From day one, I was very clear that the Gorilla should look believable and it should be appealing to the audience. Given the tough year we all have had, we wanted this film to be a breath of fresh air and enjoyable light entertainment. With Hello Charlie we aimed to make a situational comedy that entirely relies on the innate sense of humour and comic timing of the actors. And it was great that we got the legendary Jackie Shroff, Rajpal Yadav and talented Aadar Jain to helm the movie and conveyed the kind of comedy we were looking for, so effortlessly. Hello Charlie is a film that has something for everyone and I’m really looking forward to the World Television Premiere on Zee Cinema”
The story of Hello Charlie revolves around a simpleton, Charlie who keeps trying and failing to earn honest money, and a business tycoon MD Makwana, who is running from the law while looking to flee the country by disguising himself as Toto, a gorilla. The story takes a turn when Charlie, unaware of the Toto’s real identity, greedily takes on a task to deliver it from Mumbai to Diu for a circus. The comedy mayhem begins when Toto is mistaken for the actual Gorilla on the loose. What follows is a string of comical errors, hysterical fixes and great fun.
