Almost Pyaar With DJ Mohabbat: Anurag Kashyap presents a Gen Z love story featuring Alaya F and debutant Karan Mehta. Watch the trailer below.
The trailer of Anurag Kashyap's next Almost Pyaar With DJ Mohabbat was released by the makers on Thursday, January 19. The romantic drama features Alaya F, daughter of Pooja Bedi and her ex-husband Farhan Ebrahim Furniturewala, and debutant Karan Mehta in lead roles.
The trailer shows Anurag Kashyap's take on the Gen Z relationships with Alaya F and Karan playing dual characters, with one pair in Dalhousie and another in London. The story, set in a small town in India, touches upon the aspects of the young generation's aspirations and religion, while nothing much is revealed about the other story set abroad. Amidst all this, there is a DJ named DJ Mohabbat who seems to be the uniting factor between the two tales.
This will be the third film and second theatrical release for Alaya F after her debut Jawaani Jaaneman was released in 2020 and her second film was the romantic thriller Freddy, which was released directly on Disney+ Hotstar in December last year. On the other hand, Karan Mehta marks his debut with the upcoming romantic drama. He is the son of Rakesh Mehta, a famous director in Punjabi cinema who has helmed Pollywood films such as Rang Punjab, Ik Sandhu Hunda Si, and Yaara Ve among others.
