On his 51st birthday, filmmaker Karan Johar dropped first-look posters of his upcoming romantic comedy, Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani. The film was originally slated for a February 10 release, but has now been pushed to July 28. On Thursday, fans got new looks at both Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh as their characters in the film, Rani and Rocky, as well as their ‘parivaar’.
Sharing new posters of Rocky, Karan wrote on Instagram, “An absolute ‘heartthrob’, who wears his own heart on his sleeve – meet Rocky!🤟🏻”. The posters show a bare-chested and bronzed Ranveer delivering his most over-the-top pose, as his hair flies in the breeze. He’s also wearing a large chain, and a gold, animal-printed shirt. The second poster shows Ranveer pulling his large sunglasses down, as he poses in a studded leather jacket.
Sharing Alia’s posters, Karan wrote, “Ladies & gentlemen, the queen is here to steal your hearts – meet Rani! 💕”. Rani seems like a more reserved character, going by her attire. She’s wearing saris in both posters, and isn’t posing outrageously. “A film by Karan Johar, in his 25th anniversary year,” reads the text below each of the posters. Karan made his debut with 1998’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, and has since become synonymous with opulent romantic dramas.
In another post, Karan wrote, “It’s Rocky & Rani’s world & you’re about to live in it!😍 BUT stay tuned, because you’re about to meet their parivaar too!”
Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani is headlined by Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh. Dharmendra, Shabana Azmi, Jaya Bachchan and Churni Ganguly are also part of the movie.
