The trailer of Zoya Akhtar's much-awaited film Dil Dhadakne Do, which was unveiled last night, has been lauded by several Bollywood celebrities like Rishi Kapoor, Karan Johar and Sridevi. The first look was viewed over one million times on YouTube in less than 24 hours of its release online, and the numbers are only growing.
The film stars an ensemble cast of Anushka Sharma, Ranveer Singh, Shefali Shah, Anil Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar and tells the story of a dysfunctional Punjabi family on a cruise trip.
In the trailer, Kamal Mehra (Anil) and Neelam Mehra (Shefali) are seen worrying about their two children played by Ranveer and Priyanka.
Anushka plays Ranveer's love interest, while Farhan is seen wooing Priyanka.
