Bollywood’s ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ Trailer Launched

Ahead of Abhishek Kapoor’s Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’s December 10 release, a trailer has dropped showing a passionate couple, played by Ayushmann Khurrana (Badhaai Ho) and Vaani Kapoor (Bell Bottom), whose lives change after the main character hints at a gender-related issue with his partner. With Khurrana stepping into the shoes of a fitness enthusiast, Kapoor could reportedly play a transgender character in the pic. “It’s not just any love story but one that’s uniquely mind-bending and yet universal in its appeal. I have always believed in curating stories that are intricately woven and characters that resonate with people,” said director Kapoor. Gulshan Kumar of T-Series and Pragya Kapoor (under Abhishek’s Guy In The Sky Pictures banner) are on board as producers.
