Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya, take that for a title. Definately, quite the quintessential Bollywood romantic masala, the movie promises to be one of a kind. Produced under the Dharma banner, the film has been helmed by debutant director Shashank Khaitan. The movie stars Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles, with the effervescent Ashutosh Rana also playing a pivotal character. Recently Varun and Alia were seen promoting the film on the Indian Premier League talk show, Extra Innings.
The trailer of the movie, which released on the 26th of May, 2014 has already garnered positive reviews with more than 13,00,800 views on Youtube, in less than two days. The movie will also pen the start of TV heart-throb Siddharth Shukla’s bollywood innings. He was earlier the part of a reality dance show Jhalak Dhikhla Jaa, where the producer of the film, Karan Johar, was one of the judges.
The two minute thirty-four second long video, gives an idea of what fun the movie has in store for the audiences. Shot in New Delhi, Mumbai and Punjab, it revolves around the love story of a cricket fanatic, played by Varun and a die-hard Kareena Kapoor fan picturized on Alia. The music of this eccentric story has been scored by Sachin-Jigar. Saturday Saturday, the peppy and already famous party anthem, performed by Indeep Bakshi and Badshah, has also been picturized in the film and can be heard in the trailer.
Humpty Sharma ki Dulhaniya releases on the 11th of July, 2014.
