Producer Karan Johar on Wednesday unveiled the film’s first official look. It features Shahid, looking smart in a leather jacket and a beard, while holding the quirkily dressed Alia, who is seen planting a kiss on her co-star’s cheek. Shahid is all smiles in the poster of the film, which is directed by Vikas Bahl of “Queen” fame.
Karan tweeted: “And here it is!!!!! #Shaandaarfirstlook @shahidkapoor and @aliaa08 like never before!!!”
Even the newly married Shahid shared: “And the Shaandaar journey begins….#Shaandaarfirstlook”, while Alia shared: “AND we are up!!!!This Dussehra make it SHAANDAAR !! @shahidkapoor #ShaandaarFirstLook #SHAANDAARonDUSSEHRA.”
Just a day before, the filmmaker had shared a teaser poster, featuring Shahid and Alia against the backdrop of a romantic view. While Alia was seen sleeping on a wooden bench, Shahid is leaning his head on her elbow. An airplane is seen leaving a vapour trail depicting two hearts.
The two hearts are also seen in the first look, suggesting that the movie will be truly a romantic one at heart.
Its trailer will be out on August 11.
