It’s been long time since Karan Johar sat in the director’s chair for a film and being a fan of his cinema and the world that he creates on screen, I had been waiting eagerly for his next directorial. So, when he announced his return to the romcom genre with Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, I was ecstatic. What added to the excitement was the highly successful lead pair of Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, and now there’s more reason to celebrate as we have a date for the release of the film.
Here’s the release date announcement:
The film also boasts a highly acclaimed and iconic supporting cast that includes veterans like Jaya Bachchan, Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi. Karan announced the release date for the film to be February 10, 2023, with a video from behind the scenes of the film’s shoot and I have to say that all the actors’ look from the film has me awestricken.
While Jaya Bachchan is seen doing an aarti in one of the scenes, reminding of her iconic scene from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, it’s Alia’s glamorous look in these beautiful sarees that has all my heart. I am sure Manish Malhotra has yet again created a memorable look for his actress. The set just speaks grandeur, which is what Karan is known for and seeing him get back to that familial ground, has me got all excited for the film.
Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani also has Farah Khan Kunder as the choreographer while Saif Ali Khan’s eldest son Ibrahim Ali Khan is an assistant director on the film. The film has been on the floors for about 50 days in Delhi and with the names attached to it, it seems like Karan has got the dream team together and the project has already been a much-awaited one. For me, the whole fun vibe that I get from this announcement video and especially Alia’s look, has just got me eagerly waiting for the film’s release now.
