The much awaited ‘Bareilly ki Barfi’ starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajkumar Rao and Kriti Sanon has come out with a new and very interesting poster to mark the countdown to its August 18 release. The official Twitter page of the movie posted the new poster showing the ‘Trapped’ star Rajkumar wrapped in a blue saree, as Ayushmann and Kriti look on perplexed. The post is captioned, “Chirag hai pyar ki khoj main, Bitti apni hi soch main aur Pritam Vidrohi in a saree bina petticoat main. New poster from #BareillyBarfi.”
Rajkumar, who has played a breadth of characters in his short career, spoke about the unique characters and story line of the movie recently and expressed excitement for the movie that has vowed audiences with its out-of-the-box trailers and posters. The trailer, released earlier, revealed that Rajkumar’s character, Pritam Vidrohi, is a salesman at a store for sarees in a very small town in North India. The leading girl, Bitti (played by Kriti Sanon) is peppy and bold and is looking for a guy to marry on her own, beating those small-town stereotypes. The film focusses on the hilarious but involving efforts of Pritam and Chirag(played by Ayushmann) to win over the charming Bitti’s heart.
The romantic comedy has been directed by Ashwany Tiwari, and written by Nitesh Tiwari and Shreyas Jain. The film will be released under the banner of Junglee Pictures and BR Studios and will hit the theatres on Independence Day weekend, 18th July 2017.
