Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan were present at the trailer launch of their upcoming film ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’, directed by Karan Johar.
While Alia plays a bratty girl from Ambala, obsessed with Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor, Varun plays a Punjabi from Delhi, who is a cricket obsessed guy looking for a bride.
After Student of the Year, Varun and Alia are back together in their mentor Karan Johar’s production for the second time. The trailer sees a scene from one of the greatest love stories ever, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge.
Karan told reporters at the film’s trailer launch: “I have a lot of memories of ‘DDLJ’. I started my career from there… It is and will be the largest part of my career. The film with its epic love story and innocence had set the barometer.”
“After this, a lot of love stories were made but nobody could touch that bar. It is the pillar of love stories,” he added.
Playing a tribute to DDLJ, karan said: “Our film (‘Humpty Sharma..) is an ode to ‘DDLJ’. One will see glimpses of ‘DDLJ’ but the love story is different from ‘DDLJ’. We have made this film with honesty, integrity (and) with an intention to entertain people.”
‘Humpty Sharma…’ starring Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan is directed by newcomer Shashank Khaitan.
