To which Jamel Debbouze replied:Well yes, of course. When I learned that I was going to be a father, I almost took off. We are always afraid. We find ourselves faced with an immense responsibility and then, we fantasize about it, it overwhelms us.

When we find ourselves faced with this deadline of becoming responsible, this period did not appeal to me at all. I was really scared. I questioned myself, even maybe a little too much (…) VSIt’s interesting in this film to see how this child leads me to become responsible and how Samy, my character, brings a little more life into his own. There is an exchange of good practices“.

In September 2011, the couple had little Lila, thus expanding their family.
