Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani is Bollywood’s one of the most anticipated films. The Karan Johar directorial stars Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the lead. veterinary actors Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi will also be a part of the film. Talking about the project filmmaker Karan has revealed that it is not a ‘romantic-comedy but a ‘family dramedy.’
The filmmaker who is returning to director’s chair after 2016 shared his excitement about directing a film. Karan said, “It’s a family dramedy. It’s not a rom-com. Quintessentially, at heart, it is a family dramedy. It’s got comedy, love, but it’s a family movie. It’s a film about their grandparents, their parents and themselves. It is of course Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani but it’s also about Rocky Aur Rani’s grandparents, it’s also about Rocky Aur Rani’s parents. There’s a lot of interplay of relationships in the film.”
He also expressed his excitement about working with senior stars Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi. He said, “I’m really excited to work with cinema veterans. There’s Dharamji, Shabana Ji and Jaya Ji all together. I have never worked with Dharamji and Shabana Ji ever, nor has the company and I’m vastly excited to actually be able to direct them. Many many ticks on my bucket list. With Jaya aunty, of course, I’ve done a lot of work before and I’m excited to be back with her on set. More than anything else, I’m excited to be back on set. Excited to be directing a feature film.”
The announcement of the film was made this year on Ranveer Singh’s birthday. A poster along with a video announcement was shared on social media along with cast reveal. The film’s shoot has already started. The film is slated for release in 2022.
