The trailer of Kiara Advani's upcoming Netflix Original Guilty has been debuted by Dharma Productions' digital content arm Dharmatic. Directed by Ruchi Narain, the trailer arrives a day after the first official poster.

Guilty explores the nebulous nature of truth, victim-blaming, and class conflicts. The story follows a small-town girl who accuses the college heartthrob of sexual assault. Seen through the eyes of a musician, Guilty intends to make the audience question who is truly 'guilty' in such circumstances.

Kiara Advani plays Nanki, an upwardly mobile, "wild," pot-smoking college student and musician. Her "tribe" consists of her boyfriend VJ, and friends Tashi and Hardy. All goes well until a girl named Tanu Kumar accuses VJ of raping her on Valentine's Day. As the news becomes viral, testimonies become ambiguous, and friendships begin to fray.
