Filmmaker Karan Johar picks up his director’s hat again after seven years for a joyous Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani. Starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles, the filmmaker took to social media on May 25, to unveil the first look posters of the new generation romantic pair. While the teaser is likely to be out on June 20, the trailer will be released in July.
As per a report by Pinkvilla, the length of the teaser is 1 minute 16 seconds. While we’ve already seen the colourful character posters of Ranveer’s Rocky and Alia’s Rani, along with their characters’ respective family portraits, the teaser will further set the tone of the family comedy.
“Karan Johar and team is all set to launch the Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani teaser on June 20, with which, he will set the tone of expectations right. It’s a proper family comedy with all members in ensemble getting their moment to shine, and the teaser is more of an introduction to the film’s tone as also the quirky characters,” revealed a source close to the development.
Rocky Aur Rani is Karan’s seventh directorial, following Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (his directorial debut, that’ll complete 25 years on October 16), Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001), Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006), Student of the Year (2012) and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016).
The promotional campaign for Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani started on May 25, Karan’s 51st birthday.
