The trailer for Shimla Mirchi just dropped. The film stars Rajkummar Rao, Rakul Preet Singh and Hema Malini. It is directed by Ramesh Sippy.

A love story at heart, Shimla Mirchi follows the lives of Avi (Rajkummar Rao) and Naina (Rakul Preet Singh). Avi generally has trouble expressing his feelings; however, after falling in love with Naina, he decides to confess his feelings through a love letter. But that’s when the comedy takes an unexpected turn as the letter finds itself in the wrongful hands of Naina’s mother, played by Hema Malini. Now, Hema Malini has fallen for Avi; the latter however has trouble communicating the truth.

Watch the trailer here:

The romantic-comedy is set to hit theatres on 3 January 2020.

Rajkummar Rao recently finished filming for the film adaptation The White Tiger, which also stars Priyanka Chopra. She took to Instagram to write a long note about the “hardworking crew” and “delightful cast” she has worked with.

Priyanka began with, “Happy tired.. but so excited to have wrapped #TheWhiteTiger. It was such a pleasure to work with the best in the business in every department. The most hard working crew.. and such a delightful cast. Thank you for all your brilliance. I can’t wait to see the finished product and share it with the world...”
