2 States first look poster

Just when Alia Bhatt is riding high on the Highway wave, the first look poster of her new film with Dharma Productions, 2 States, is out. Filmmaker Karan Johar had, in fact, tweeted about Alia’s performance in Highway, saying he felt like a “proud father” upon seeing her performance in the film. Karan had given Alia her first break in his production Student Of The Year along with two other newbies, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra. And now she stars in 2 States.

What do we think of the 2 States poster?

We’ve read the book and we’ve seen on-location images of Alia and her co-star Arjun Kapoor sometime back. So we expected more out of the first poster of 2 States. But we still like what we see. Although the faces of Alia and Arjun are not visible fully, it’s funky the way India’s map has been shown with Arjun the North Indian trying to catch Alia the South Indian’s hand. Do you like it?

2 States is based on Chetan Bhagat’s novella and produced by Karan Johar‘s Dharma Productions. It’s being directed by Abhishek Verman and the story and screenplay are written by Bhagat. 2 States releases on April 18, 2014.
