Mumbai, 3rd May 2012: The music launch of the English anti ageing comedy movie Love Wrinkle Free saw the complete starcast of the movie as well as a plethora of stars grace the event. A romantic comedy movie, it stars famous standup comedian Ash Chandler and accomplished actress Shernaz Patel in the lead roles. The film also stars actors Seema Rehmani and Ashwin Mushran playing important characters.

The Music Launch saw a splendid performance by Tenzin Jigme who has also lent his voice to the movie. Also enthralling the audience with their sizzling and hot dance performance were Vineet and Sahiba from Dance Factory.

Set in Goa, “Love, Wrinkle-Free” is a story about SAVIO, a 38 year old Senior Area Sales manager who works in an innerwear company. Savio’s mundane life is thrown out of gear with the unplanned pregnancy of his 46 year old religious wife ANNIE. Complicating matters further is how their adopted teenage daughter RUTH (with Asian/North East Indian features), reacts to this pregnancy, and a chance meeting Savio has with a sensual traveling photographer NATALIE, who wants him to do something “unique” for her.

At its heart, “Love, wrinkle-free” is an off-beat, light-hearted story about love going beyond cosmetic barriers – a universal theme that finds resonance across the world.
