The movie was Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt’s third film together and was the second installment of a franchise that began with the 2014 film Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. Directed by Shashank Khaitan and produced by Dharma Productions, it revolved around the love story between Badrinath Bansal (Varun) and Vaidehi Trivedi (Alia).
The audience gave dicey reviews as on the one hand the lead actors’ performances were appreciated but the plot and theme entirely did not get a definite thumbs up. Nevertheless, the footfalls in the theatres proved that Varun and Alia have turned into the bankable stars who can pull their fans irrespective of not-so-favourable reviews.
