Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon star in ‘Raabta‘ – the directorial debut of Dinesh Vijan, producer of films such as Love Aaj Kal, Cocktail and Badlapur – out on 9th June 2017. Set against the beautiful backdrop of Budapest, Raabta stars Sushant Singh Rajput, who shot to fame as legendary cricketer in MS Dhoni: An Untold Story. The film also starts Kriti Sanon of Dilwale fame. Kriti spoke about her character in Raabta. “My character believes in reincarnation. When we meet someone we either get a good or bad vibe and that is maybe because there is some connection and I do believe in this.”
Meet Shiv (Sushant Singh Rajput) and Saira (Kriti Sanon), two seemingly ordinary individuals, going about their lives until their paths cross and they realise that they belong to one another. Unaware of a connection that was forged over several hundred years ago, Shiv and Saira are inexplicably drawn to each other and have a beautiful and hilarious relationship in a short space of time.
Shiv is a laugh a minute and unknowingly brings so much sunshine into her life that Saira feels this is too good to be true. Until, of course, the third angle to their relationship emerges in the form of Zakir Merchant, a billionaire who goes all out to woo the beautiful yet strikingly down-to-earth Saira. From this point on, her life takes a turn that changes everything about her destiny. A prophecy looms large over the destinies of Shiv, Zak and Saira in this life too.
The film’s songs have already proved incredibly popular, with the song ‘Ik Vaari’ and the title song ‘Raabta’, which features the stunning Deepika Padukone, gaining more than 20 million views on YouTube. Produced by Homi Adajania, Bhushan Kumar and Dinesh Vijan, Raabta is distributed internationally by Coconut Movies and releases nationwide on 9th June 2017.
