Helmed R Balki, Cheeni Kum is available for streaming on ZEE5. The film's narrative revolves around diner Nina Verma (Tabu) and a restaurateur in London Buddhadev Gupta (Amitabh Bachchan) who grow close after an early argument over the caliber of his meal. They fall for each other even when he is in his 60s and Nina is in her 30s. They both then go through family difficulties as their age difference becomes a problem for everyone. 


Besides Amitabh Bachchan and Tabu, the film also featured Zohra Sehgal, and Swini Khara in important roles and was praised for its direction, story, screenplay, dialogues, soundtrack, and performances of the cast. Directed and written by R Balki, the film was produced by Sunil Manchanda. 

Earlier, at a masterclass session at the recent Ajanta Ellora International Film Festival, filmmaker R Balki spoke about the film and revealed Big B's reaction after he narrated the script of Cheeni Kum. He said, that when he completed the narration of the film, the megastar neither laughed nor enjoyed one joke in the script. Further citing the reason behind the same, he said, “I looked up, and he had this absolutely cold expression. Then I suddenly realized why he was looking at me like that. I was reading the whole script to him in his voice. I was imitating him. To behave like Bachchan to Bachchan is the biggest embarrassment in the world."
