Gippi film is directed by Sonam Nair and produced by Karan Johar. It features by newcomer Riya Vij and Taaha Shah in lead roles. Gippi is a plump pre-teen plagued with problems of Pre PMS and confused about her springing adolescence. Until a competition to win the title of the school 'Head Girl' changes it all. She's a typical 14-year-old, hungering for junk food and caring-a-damn about her unwaxed legs and unplucked eyebrows. She's no topper. Far from a head-turner. She's Gippi (Riya), a gregarious, gol-matol gal. The bindaas backbencher, who doesn't sweat over low scores in class, or being overweight with mass. Damn the parlours, beauty queens, gossip gals and fashion magazines, these aren't her favourite subjects. There's lot more going on in her small world of 'heavy-weight' teenage troubles. Overall, a simple story that stays pre-pubescent and doesn't quite grow into the high-school of stories. The film was released on 10 May 2013.
