The teaser released at the same time as Veere Di Wedding (which was also produced by Ekta Kapoor.) Despite the teaser giving us quite a clear indication of what the story is going to be, the cast of Laila Majnu is still under tight wraps. For a story as old as the ages, the eccentric director presents the modern day rendition of this film in a rather unique way. Check out the beautiful teaser for the film here!
While Imtiaz has co-written the story with Sajid, the film has been produced by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures and PI Films. Imtiaz’s last direction was Jab Harry Met Sejal, featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma in key roles. The film had opened to a mixed bag of reviews and Imtiaz was subjected to criticism as many fans felt that the filmmaker continues to process similar stories in different packaging. Armed with a yet to be revealed cast, Laila Majnu is scheduled to hit the screens on 24 August, 2018.
