Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap says that his upcoming production "Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana" reminded him of Hrishikesh Mukherjee kind of cinema, which is no longer made.

"After a long time I read a script which I found was in a zone that we no longer remember. You see 'Little Miss Sunshine', 'Juno', then there were Basu Chatterjee and Hrishikesh Mukherjee films, this is like those gentle comedies," the 40-year-told reporters at an event here.

"People have stopped writing such films and somewhere I got a similar feel from the film," he added.

The film revolves around the hunt for a secret recipe - Chicken Khurana - that had made the Khurana Dhaba famous.

Lead actor of the film Kunal Kapoor says that the dish is used as a metaphor in the film.

"The name is Chicken Khurana but it could have been Paneer Khurana or Aaloo Khurana, the dish is not important. What is more important is what the dish represents," Kunal said.

"It is a metaphor for many things in the film, be it romance or family, there are a lot of things that the dish connects to," he added.

Directed by Sameer Sharma, "Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana" also stars Huma Qureshi and is slated for a Nov 2 release.
