Varun & Alia in Badrinath Ki Dulhania

MUMBAI (Diya TV) — Badrinath Ki Dulhania, a desi-pan with a little “hatke” defines the film. Directed and written by Shashank Khaitan, the film is a love franchise produced by Dharma Productions. The movie pretty much looks like a sequel of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania with same star cast with Varun & Alia have masochistic U.P. style (aka Uttar Pradesh, one of the states in India) love story.

Badrinath Bansal is a small town boy from Jhansi who is very decent and meets his Dulhania (bride) Alia Bhatt who plays Vaidehi Trivedi. Badri proposes marriage to Vaidehi but both of them have diametrically opposite opinions on everything. Despite having differences in their opinions and ideologies, Varun & Alia go on a sweet journey of love in the film.

Movie plot aside, Varun & Alia have set a new trend in film promotions, from Alia’s acapella stints on Twitter & Instagram to the duo’s in character blurbs on instagram.

Recently Varun & Alia  were spotted in Jaipur interacting with their fans and performing dance numbers. And while we are on that topic, let us see what these two have got for us. Yes, if you have heard it right then it is ‘Tamma Tamma Again’. This song was first featured by Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt which was one of the best known dance numbers in Madhuri’s film career and again, Varun & Alia’s are coming up with a 2017 version. Ah… I’ve always wondered what would it be like if Madhuri Dixit taught these dance steps, checkout this amazing video where Varun & Alia are learning to dance for this song. 

With a successful promotional wrap in Jaipur, Badrinathi Ki Dulhani’s team is all set to hit the capital city this week. Varun Dhawan all excited with his film promotions tweeted saying…

Along with these promotions, Varun & Alia appeared on Karan Johar’s hit talk show ‘Koffee with Karan‘, where they talked about the usual movie set pranks and the making of the film. When asked about their relationship, Alia said they fight like siblings but there is nothing more than that between them. The duo, who is famously called ‘Varia’ by their fans, have certainly seemed to have mastered the art of social media promotion. The film comes out March 10th, here’s a sneak peek:

Three people are in custody for the carnage, including a 28-year-old Australian self-proclaimed racist man who livestreamed the bloodshed.

The Bangladesh cricket team was visiting one of the mosques at the time of the attack and escaped through a park.

Director Ayan Mukerji, Alia Bhatt & Ranbir Kapoor at the Kumbh Mela for the logo launch of their new film Brahmastra

SAN FRANCISCO (Diya TV) —   When it comes to Bollywood, the marketing stunts pulled by the movie business are next to none. Fox Star Hindi’s latest release, ‘Brahmastra‘, starring Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor showed up at the largest religious pilgrimage in India, known as the Kumbh Mela. While marketers have long promoted their client’s brands at the Kumbh Melas to reach vast audiences from the remotest parts of India at one central location, ‘Brahmastra’ became the first film ever to unveil its logo at the Mela. A centuries old tradition, said to be dating back to 644 CE, The Mela brings together millions who come to take a dip in the holy waters.

And even though the movie is months away from release, the clever marketing stunt makes all the sense, given the 2019 Kumbh Mela attracted over 220 million people from all over India & the world. The stars along with director Ayan Mukerji were on hand for the exclusive reveal. A hundred and fifty drones lit up the night sky to premiere the logo for the magnum opus which also stars legendary actor, Amitabh Bachchan. The film, set to be part of an epic trilogy will release in theaters across North America this Christmas.
