An adaptation to the classic fable of the star-crossed lovers Laila and Majnu, this film is jointly presented by Ekta Kapoor and Imtiaz Ali. The film stars newbies Avinash Tiwary and Tripti Dimri in the lead roles.
While the trailer of the film was scheduled to release on 25 July, it will also now release sometime later. Speaking about this delay, Imtiaz said in a statement, "It takes the whole village to raise a child! (African proverb). And it takes a big team to raise a film and bring it to the world. And while I’m excited to show you the trailer of Laila Majnu as soon as possible, the wait will be a slightly more. My friends in the distribution team urged me to look at releasing the film on 7 September and I see their point that it would be better for Laila Majnu to be released on that date. I’ve been told the trailer comes out about four to five weeks before the film and not any earlier. So guys... a little longer wait, we shall put the trailer out soon.. Thanks for the overwhelming response on the posters and videos of Laila Majnu, keep sending us your love ... love is worth the wait! Laila Majnu to release on 7 September," as quoted by Hindustan Times.
The story of this adaptation is set in Kashmir and will see the star-crossed lovers revel in the newfound love in their otherwise morbid, lonely lives.
