BOLLYWOOD: Love stories have alway been a hit among audiences but looks like this one’s going to be quite out of the box and make huge noise, when it releases next year. Starring Sonam Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Juhi Chawla, the trailer that has just hit the web is so heart-warming that it not only promises to bring back the old world charm of romance; but also stays relevant to the current times and reminds you that you need to stop being judgemental about one’s ‘love interest’ .
It starts with Sonam dreaming about her own fairytale love story and how even she’ll fall in love with someone who will sweep her off her feet one day. But soon comes a point where her family misunderstands her ‘friendship’ with Rajkummar Rao as ‘love’ and decides to get them married. That’s when Sonam makes a revelation about her preference in love, leaving her father (played by Anil Kapoor) in a state of shock as he looks down upon her and says, ‘I didn’t expect this from you’. However, during this emotional encounter, Sonam too doesn’t hesitate from giving it back to her dad saying, ‘Even I didn’t expect this from you’. Why did her father get upset on hearing her preference in love? Is it a story of an inter-caste love story or does it go beyond that?
In case you still haven’t got the gist of the film then well, #LetLoveBe, as the hashtag of the film goes is asking you to stop discriminating love on the basis of caste, creed, sex. Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga majorly revolves around a girl falling in love with another girl – the first film, a bold move indeed, after the Supreme Court decriminalised homosexuality by ruling out Section 377.
