New Delhi: Media mogul Ekta Kapoor is teaming up with Bejoy Nambiar for their upcoming production `Kuku Mathur Ki Jhand Ho Gayi`, a comedy to be set in the by-lanes of Delhi.

The film`s quirky title has been chosen through a survey by the youth of Delhi.

"`Kuku Mathur Ki Jhand Ho Gayi` has a quintessential Delhi flavor. While deciding on its title, we took inputs from Delhi students from various colleges.

"We zeroed in on the word `jhand`, which is very popular in the city. The word describes the hilarious crisis situation that the actor is in," Nambiar said in a statement.

It will be directed by newbie filmmaker Aman Sachdeva.

"The film is about a fun, quirky and no-holds barred friendship that turns crazy when competition seeps in," Sachdeva said.

The film features former Miss India Simran Kaur and newcomer Siddharth Gupta in prominent roles.
