Bebo teams up with Imran Khan for the first time, for yet another KJo's romantic flick. It will be really interesting for the viewers to watch both of them and the chemistry as predecessors of each of them also used to rock the silver screen  when paired together, remember 'Raja Hindustani'.

Earlier the movie was titled as Short Term Shaadi, but now it is 'Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu'.

Says Karan, "Short Term Shaadi was just a working title that attached itself to this film through the making. Neither Shakun Batra (who makes his directorial debut here) nor I were happy with it from the start, so we went title hunting. Just recently, we settled on Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, but there was a process attached to getting it, hence the delayed announcement.''

KJo adds that the new title fits this rom-com perfectly well. He says, "Short Term Shaadi wasn't giving the right vibe. This story is about the conversational chemistry between these two very beautiful people - Imran and Kareena. EMAET is a witty, feel-good, slice-of-life comedy and it conveys the energies of this couple.''

Revealing a secret, Karan says, "Imran is a self-confessed Kareena fan. When I saw these two together in one frame at the photo shoot, I realised that they were a smashing couple. Casting them together was a wise decision. It is amazing that Kareena is romancing Aamir in one film and then his nephew Imran in another. Getting Bebo and Imran together is a coup of sorts.''

Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu will release on February 10 and KJo recommends it as the perfect Valentine's Day flick. Says he, "You can watch it with your friend or with your date.''

He also feels that this could well be Dharma Productions' hat-trick in the romcom genre; the earlier two being Wake Up Sid and I Hate Luv Storys.

"Shakun and Imran are close friends. And this film also shows their comfort level as an actor-director team,'' he says, adding, "Kareena hasn't done a romcom in a while; Imran has made a perfect place for himself in this genre. As I said earlier, this film has captured the conversational chemistry of these two perfectly. And though Imran has acted with several other leading ladies, the USP of Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu is seeing Bebo and him together for the first time."
