- Manmarziyaan has been shot extensively in Punjab
- Taapsee Pannu plays Rumi
- Manmarziyaan releases on September 7
Abhishek Bachchan is back. He's back with Anurag Kashyap's Manmarziyaan, which also stars Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal. The trailer of the film released on Thursday morning. Manmarziyaan is a love story. Rumi (Taapsee) and Vicky (Vicky Kaushal) love each other but she gets married to Robbie (Abhishek). Vicky plays a happy-go-lucky man who does love Rumi but is afraid to accept the responsibilities that come with marriage. Robbie is well-settled and Rumi's parents choose him as her life partner. Love doesn't take over between Robbie and Rumi after their wedding. Will Rumi and Vicky reunite? Will Robbie help the two? These are some of the questions that come up at the end. Otherwise, Manmarziyaan, shot in extensively in Punjab, looks colourful. The dialogues are catchy and Vicky Kaushal, whom we have seen in serious roles so far, is playing completely the opposite.

Manmarziyaan is Abhishek's first film in two years. 2016's Housefull 3 was his last film. Abhishek shared experience of shooting the film in a lengthy note posted on Instagram and also thanked Anurag Kashyap.
