The first trailer of Ekta Kapoor and Imtiaz Ali's upcoming film, Laila Majnu, has been released. Written and directed by Imtiaz's brother Sajid Ali, the project is a modern retelling of the legendary love story.

The trailer starts with the lead actor talking about how love is not love as long as there is no madness to it. The lead actress is introduced as a 'big flirt' and the actor as a 'rich spoilt brat' who loves women and drinking. The two are shown falling in love gradually, before everything stars to fall apart.
