The Shaandaar trailer is out and we now have an idea how Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt look together onscreen. It starts with a modern recreation of the famous Romeo-Juliet‘s balcony scene. The lovely Alia is standing on the balcony of a stone-bungalow looking at Shahid. And just when Alia and you are made to think this is going to be a run-of-the-mill romantic tale, Shahid plays spoilsport saying, “Aisa kuch nahi hone wala hai”. You then know for sure this is going to be the ultimate Bollywood romcom that will attempt to steal your heart.
Shaandaar is India’s first destination wedding film produced by Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane and the trailer tells you no expense was spared here. Jagjinder Joginder or JJ played by Shahid Kapoor is a wedding planner who promises to treat us to some hearty laughs. Pankaj Kapur plays a character that looks like someone who is going to make life difficult for JJ. It will be really interesting to see the real life father-son share screen space. The sparkling chemistry between the lead pair cannot be ignored. We are also introduced to the rest of the cast like actress Sushma Seth who plays the matriarch – an elegant lady dressed in all-white and diamonds. The other family, the Fandwanis are all about the bling and all kind of Bappi Lahiri imagery flashes by.
‘Shanatics’ all over the world have been keenly waiting for this trailer and we are sure they weren’t disappointed. With the trailer launch, it seems the buzz generated by the movie is totally justified. Shaandaar releases this October 22nd. This one certainly looks shaandaar.
