The trailer of Shashank Khaitan's upcoming romantic comedy, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, is making waves on social media. Produced under Karan Johar's banner Dharma Productions, the film is the sequel to Khaitan's directorial debut, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, that released three years ago to massive success at the box office.

The sequel stars Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt in lead roles along with Gauhar Khan and Girish Karnad in supporting roles. The trailer, highlighted by the sizzling chemistry between the lead pair, teases a wholesome commercial potboiler on March 10, days before Holi.

The trailer was launched at a grand event in Mumbai on 2 February, where the lead pair were seen shaking a leg on the title song of the film. It received a commendable response on YouTube as it crossed 5 million views just overnight. No brownie points for guessing why. But if you are still wondering, check out the trailer review by Firstpost here.

The Hindi film fraternity congratulated the cast and crew on their trailer and expressed their excitement of watching the film next month. Among those who retweeted the trailer were many of Bhatt and Varun's contemporaries and co-stars.

Jacqueline Fernandez, who shared the screen space with Varun in his brother Rohit Dhawan’s action comedy Dishoom last year, wished the lead pair luck for the film. Similarly, Kriti Sanon, who starred opposite Varun in Rohit Shetty’s 2015 family drama Dilwale, also claimed that she cannot contain her excitement to watch the film when it releases.

Then, Shraddha Kapoor also joined the club when she retweeted the trailer, accompanied by a congratulatory message, for Bhatt and Varun, with whom she collaborated in another sequel, Remo D’Souza’s 2015 dance drama ABCD 2.

Among other stars who wished the film well were actors Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal, Sushant Singh Rajput, Ayushmann Khurrana and film producer Sahil Sangha.
