Jemima Khan is one of the most loved former bhabhis of Pakistan and if Pakistanis can stan a cross-cultural union in marriage, a cinematic view of that is something to look forward to. Directed by Shekhar Kapur and written by Khan, What's Love Got to Do With It? may be out in 2022 but its first look is out now.

Studiocanal and Working Title released the first look of the cross-cultural British rom-com on December 9 and it showcases aspects of cultural mixing with a man in kurta and a woman in a leather jacket standing in what appears to be the inside of a desi wedding hall.

The film has a diverse cast as well — it includes Pakistani actor Sajal Aly from Mom and Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hay, English actor Lily James from Baby Driver and Darkest Hour, Oscar winner Emma Thompson from Beauty and the Beast and Bridget Jones's Baby and British actor Shazad Latif from Star Trek: Discovery among others.

The rom-com follows a filmmaker Zoe (James) and juxtaposes her journey to love (swiping on dating apps and bad dates) with that of her close friend Kazim's (Latif) who decides to opt for an arranged marriage. She records his journey from London to Lahore as he sets off to marry a stranger and starts questioning her own ideas of love.

The soundtrack for the film features British-Pakistani record producer and musician Naughty Boy of 'Lalala' fame and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, a maestro of qawaali, has also recorded two songs and will appear in the film.

The movie is set to release in cinemas worldwide in 2022.

Was calling her Jemima Khan a typo? Aren't they divorced?

@NYS if her husband does not mind why should you question?
Glen D'Abreo Dec 12, 2021 03:12pm
@A. Mohd there is no law that says Jemima cannot use her married lst name. After all she and Mr. Khan are parents of their sons.
