Mumbai: Saurabh Shukla's next film "I am 24" is a story of a balding writer and the actor-director says it is inspired by his own life. The story revolves around the writer, who falls in love with a woman over internet and their meeting thereafter.

Shukla said that he too had a pen-friend while he was pursuing theatre in Delhi. Once the girl dropped in the city and called him to meet and she was in shock to see a bald man.

"I lost my hair when I was quite young and I had a pen friend who never saw me. The premise of my film is very much similar. On the brighter side, my experience gave me a lot to write," Shukla said in a statement.

"We all have different kinds of inferiority complexes — ome economic and some physical. Most of the time, we end up lying because of it. We start hiding them and it sets out a chain of events. My film is about truth and love. Besides, baldness doesn't matter. Otherwise, all bald guys would have stayed unmarried," he added.

"I am 24" stars Rajat Kapoor, Ranvir Shorey, Neha Dhupia and Manjari Phadnis and will hit theatres on August 31.
