The makers of Bareilly Ki Barfi have left audiences intrigued with its exuberant posters, refreshing trailer and a slice of life story line. Now, they have come up with a new poster which features Rajkummar Rao in a saree. Yes, you read it right! The actor who is known to experiment with his looks for the diverse characters that he plays on screen is seen wearing a blue floral saree with a shirt as a blouse. What’s amusing about the poster, apart from Rajkummar of course, is the expression of each of them. While Kriti Sanon looks confused, Rajkummar looks naive and demure in a saree and Ayushmann Khurrana looks scared and helpless all at once in the poster. Together, they look hilarious, to say the least.

The trailer revealed that Rajkummar’s onscreen character, Pritam Vidrohi, is a salesman at a saree store and the quirky poster re-emphasizes just that. It would be a lot of fun to watch this slice-of-life love story. For the uninitiated, Bareily Ki Barfi is a story of a small town girl, Bitti (Kriti) who is the life of every social gathering and loves to dream big. She is bold and peppy and is on the lookout for a groom for her self. Both Chirag (Ayushmann) and Pritam aka Rajkumar are outdoing one another to win over her heart.
