What’s Love Got To Do With It? is a new adorable rom-com coming to theaters this May! The film stars Lily James (Downton Abbey) as Zoe, and Shazad Latif (Picard) as her best friend Kaz.

So, Zoe is a documentary maker. When Kaz is set up with an assisted marriage she sees an incredible opportunity. So she decides to film a documentary about his experience. But, the movie isn’t all about him. Throughout the film, Zoe begins to wonder if she has something to learn about love from this different approach.

So, I had a chance to sit down with Shazad Latif to talk about his new movie and why everyone should run to the theaters and see it!



How do you find lasting love in today’s world? For documentary-maker and dating app addict Zoe (Lily James), swiping right has only delivered an endless stream of Mr. Wrongs, to her eccentric mother Cath’s (Emma Thompson) dismay. For Zoe’s childhood friend and neighbor Kaz (Shazad Latif), the answer is to follow his parents’ example and opt for an arranged (or “assisted”) marriage to a bright and beautiful bride from Pakistan. As Zoe films his hopeful journey from London to Lahore to marry a stranger, chosen by his parents, she begins to wonder if she might have something to learn from a profoundly different approach to finding love.

The film stars Emmy® Award nominee Lily James (Pam & Tommy), Shazad Latif (Star Trek: Discovery), Shabana Azmi (Halo), Academy Award® and BAFTA winner Emma Thompson (Matilda), Sajal Aly (Yakeen Ka Safar), Asim Chaudhry (Black Mirror: Bandersnatch), Jeff Mirza (Eternals), as well as Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan as himself.  

What’s Love Got To Do With It opens in theaters nationwide on May 5, 2023!
