The first trailer of Karan Johar‘s production venture Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, staring Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles, was unveiled recently.
The entire team including Karan Johar, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Shukla attended the launch event.
Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt arrived like their respective characters in the film, sporting sunglasses, much like in the posters. Both even lifted each other, like in the posters, while posing for the shutterbugs. The actors also shared their experiences from the shoot.
Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania is a tribute to the 1995 hit Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, of which Karan Johar was an assistant director.
“I was the assistant director with Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. I have the best memories with this film. Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania is an epic love story and it’s not a copy of that film. It’s a different film and I feel every filmmaker wants to have at least one frame in their film from the beautiful film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge,” stated Karan Johar at the trailer launch of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania.
Directed by debutant Shashank Khaitan, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania is set to hit the silver screen on July 11, 2014.
