Imtiaz Ali is back with another love story in the mountains — ‘Laila Majnu’

New Delhi: The trailer of Laila Majnu, Imtiaz Ali’s latest film has been released on Youtube. The trailer of Laila Majnu portrays a world of love, anxiety, violence and madness.

Set in Kashmir, the story revolves around Kais (Avinash Tiwary) and Laila (Tripti Dimri) whose journey of love is filled with insurmountable obstacles. Ali has himself given the legendary tale a contemporary twist.

The film’s producer Ekta Kapoor tweeted the trailer, and wrote, “He was mad. She was crazy. Togetherness was the eternity they lived for! Meet them in #LailaMajnuTrailer. Releasing 7th Sept’18. #PyaarMeinPagal”

While Kais is a flirt, Laila has her own way of dealing with such men. With their unique charming qualities, they meet each other and fall in love. But like every love story, misery strikes, as violence takes over separating the lovers, probably to never meet again.

Like all other Imtiaz Ali films, the trailer boasts of beautiful locations, bright and colourfull scenery, and the Himalayas. Presented by Imtiaz Ali and directed by Sajid Ali the film is set to release on September 7.
