Starring the creme de la creme of Bollywood, the film shows us what happens when a dysfunctional Punjabi family travels through Europe. When secrets come out and dirty laundry is aired, everything takes a turn. For the better or for the worse? We’ll find out this weekend, and we can’t wait! If you’re one of the few people who’s not sure about the film, it’s time to look at the facts and figures. Here are 4 reasons why Dil Dhadakne Do is going to be a blockbuster:
1. Few siblings have enjoyed as much critically acclaim in Bollywood as Farhan and Zoya Akhtar. The duo have worked together on Luck By Chance and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, the latter of which was also a blockbuster. If Dil Dhadakne Do follows the pattern, we have a truly spectacular film in store for us!
Luck By Chance (2009)
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011)
Filmfare Award for Best Director
IIFA Award for Best Director
Zee Cine Award for Best Director
Apsara Award for Best Director
2. The most successful films in Farhan Akhtar‘s acting career have been ensemble films. Between Bombay Talkies, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Luck By Chance; we’ve seen enough to know that Dil Dhadakne Do will be a hit at the box office as well!
3. Prior to Dil Dhadakne Do, Zoya Akhtar has only penned the story for Luck By Chance, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Talaash. As we’ve seen above, Luck By Chance and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara were smash hits. At over INR 100 crore, it’s safe to say that Talaash did well at the box office too!
4. Anushka is all set to share screen space with another leading lady, Priyanka Chopra. Prior to this, she has only co-starred with one other leading lady – Parineeti Chopra in Ladies vs Ricky Bahl. Her first time working with a Chopra sister was a success, and it looks like the second one will be too!
