Romance seems to be the hit genre this year. With movies fast adopting the famous rom-com genre, everything looks rose-tinted. Another romantic flick with loads of witty punches releasing this year is the screen adaptation 2 States. It is based on a book written by Chetan Bhagat with the same name. Filmmakers Sajid Nadiadwala and Karan Johar are co-producing the film, which stars newbie actors Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. While Arjun plays the role of a North Indian guy Krish Malhotra, Alia will be seen as a South Indian girl Ananya Swaminathan. The two meet at IIM Ahmedabad and fall in love with each other. The story of the film is about the ways that they put to practise in order to convince their respective parents for their marriage.
The trailer of this Sajid Nadiadwala and Karan Johar co-produced film is already out and has been winning hearts. People are madly in love with the way the trailer has come out. In fact, it has got more than 6 million hits so far. Talking about why he believes that the trailer works, Sajid said, “I feel the trailer works as it gives you the story of the film, which is a bit of comedy and a bit of romance. The film is balanced for both, the youth and the family audiences, and has thus helped it connect with a larger audience. The book is widely read and that too helps in enhanced viewing. Despite not having your quintessential big stars, the number of views is the best compliment to the trailer. My brief from Karan Johar was to have it instantly connect. Now, I just hope that the trailer viewing converts into box office numbers.”
So, are you eagerly waiting for this beautiful film to hit the theatres soon? Sajid Nadiadwala and Karan Johar release 2 States on 18th April this year!
