The trailer of the Alia Bhatt-Varun Dhawan starrer Badrinath Ki Dulhania released today and I really enjoyed it. The trailer launch was obviously lots of fun, given the leads of the movie and producer Karan Johar were at the event. Director Shashank Khaitan and Fox Star India CEO Vijay Singh were also present.
Side note: Shashank looked quite hot, don’t you think?
Badrinath Ki Dulhania is the second film in “Dharma’s love franchise” starring Alia and Varun – Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania being the first one.
The event started with a cutesy performance by Varun and Alia on the title track of the movie and even though it is too soon to say anything – the music is going to be a huge success, because everyone was humming the Chalat Musafir Moh Liya Re-inspired title track.
Karan: Varun is literally bursting out of his pants right now!
I mean, we can believe that *batting eyelids*
Karan: I told him, I’ll look like the Air India Maharaj!
Vijay: Shashank has his finger in the belly button of India…
Varun: This is the first Dharma film that’s been shot in Kota and Jhansi!
And then duly went and hugged Karan. Aw :)
Varun: Alia will make a good bahu.
He also went on to say that he doesn’t know how she’ll be as a wife because they’ve never played a married couple in a film. Of course, Alia (like all of us present) wanted to know how the hell Varun’s come to that conclusion.
Karan: “Uh, NO!”
He added that as a producer and filmmaker, his aim is to optimize numbers and the only time he’ll arrive on Eid is if he’s doing a film with Salman Khan. #SalmansEid
Alia: We aren’t trying to recreate the song. We are so happy this song exists!
Varun: Tamma Tamma is my jam! I’ve actually had the good fortune of working out with Sanjay Dutt in the gym on this song.
Just look at Sanju Baba dance, man!
Varun: My best friend Kavish actually calls me Badri. He says it’s because he believes that if I wasn’t a Bollywood hero, I’d definitely be a Bhojpuri hero.
Fun fact: Varun’s best friend Kavish is the guy who played young Hrithik Roshan aka Ladoo.
Alia Is baar pehen ke aayi hoon main Manish Malhotra ka lehenga!
