Abhay Deol has been away from the big screen since 2016 when Happy Bhag Jayegi released. Barring his controversial tweet last year where he took on celebrities like Sonam Kapoor, Shah Rukh Khan and more for endorsing fairness creams, the actor has maintained a low profile. And now, he is finally back to regale us with his performance in Nanu Ki Jaanu. The film has finally got a release date and will hit screens on 20th April, 2018.

The film pairs Abhay up with Patralekha, the svelte beauty whom we saw in Citylights with Rajkummar Rao. She has also been in news for dating the Newton actor. Presented by Inbox Pictures Pvt Ltd, Nanu Ki Jaanu is produced by Sajid Qureshi, Co-Produced by Mahipal Karan Rathore and directed by Faraz Haider.

The film is a supernatural love story and a dark comedy, a genre that Abhay Deol has confessed to be in love with. It also stars Bigg Boss 11 fame Sapna Chaudhary in a cameo. While the Nanu Ki Jaanu title had fans in anticipation for what it will be all about, we are sure that the title of a film like Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, which has become the second highest grosser of 2018 after Padmaavat, will only make things a little easier for Abhay and Patralekha’s film.

However, it should be noted that the film belongs to a lesser explored genre and therefore Abhay and Patralekha will have to try really hard to impress the audience. We will know more about what to expect when the teaser and trailer releases by the end of this month.
