Mumbai: Dancing diva Madhuri Dixit unveiled the first look of Bela Bhansali Sehgal`s directorial debut ‘Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi’ and says the film`s story is different and that it will do well.

"It is such a pleasure to be here today. My association with Sanjayji (Sanjay Leela Bhansali) goes back to `Devdas`. I have interacted with Belaji too. It is such an unusual story. When you think of Shirin and Farhad, you think of a classic love story. But here they are two very cute characters and I think it will do really well. I wish it all the best," Madhuri, who Wednesday unveiled the first look of the film, told reporters.

Co-produced by Eros International and Bhansali Productions, the film will see Farah Khan and Boman Irani as the lead pair.

"I want to wish Farah and Bomanji all the best. I had interacted with Farah during my film ‘Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam’. She was the choreographer. She is fun to work with and I really love her work," said Madhuri.

Eros International and Bhansali Productions have co-produced the film, which is Bela`s first film as a director and it also marks Farah`s acting debut.

Bhansali said: "I want to thank Madhuri for being here. It is a very special gesture. It is very difficult to make Madhuri Dixit to say yes. I know because I have gone through it. It is a very special moment for me."
