Humpty Sharma and Kavya Pratap Singh aka Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt launched the trailer of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania earlier today. While I’m not surprised at how entertaining it is, the way Varun and Alia perfectly fit their characters is commendable! Watch the trailer first, though.
Produced by Dharma Productions and AA Films, HSKD also marks director Shashank Khaitan’s directorial debut. It is a super filmy story between Humpty, a formerly fat kid, hence the name, and Kavya, the girl who will not get married without a Kareena Kapoor lehenga. Adding to the mix is Siddharth Shukla of Balika Vadhu fame, who is making his debut on the big screen as the ‘other man’, not a villain but a hero. Here sets off another love story, full of colour, Alia’s perky style and Varun’s Main Tera Hero kind of charm.
Even though it may not seem very original or new, from the trailer, the film promises to be a fun ride.
In fact, if you noticed the poster that was released yesterday during the IPL Xtra Innings T20, it is called a ‘Humphie’. That was something Alia came up with and suggested to the film’s marketing team as a promotional strategy. It is a special selfie released as a poster. Also, have you added Humpty Sharma on Whatsapp yet?
