Nawabzaade trailer packs a punch

After the stupendous response to the recreated version of Guru Randhawa’s High Rated Gabru, picturised on Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor in Nawabzaade, expectations have naturally risen for the unveiling of the trailer of Nawabzaade.

From the trailer, it is evident that Nawabzaade is a vibrant, romantic comedy about three male friends who try to woo the same girl, often giving rise to hilarious situations.

The film directed by Jayesh Pradhan is produced by Lizelle D’souza and Mayur K Barot. It stars actors from ABCD 2 — Dharmesh Yelande, Raghav Juyal and Punit J Pathak. Debutante Isha Rikhi plays the female lead in the film. Senior actors Vijay Raaz and Mukesh Tiwari support the main cast in adding a mean twist to the plot. Actor Zakir Hussain would also be seen in an important role in the film.

The trailer also gives you a sufficient glimpse of the excellent chemistry shared by the film’s lead cast, the main reason why debutant director Pradhan felt he could pull off this romantic comedy.

What also cannot be missed in the trailer is the rumbustious musical score as already witnessed through the High Rated Gabru song. A somewhat passing peek of Mummy Kasam also promises that this song too has got chartbuster written all over it.

Director Jayesh Pradhan says, “I am excited but also a bit nervous as this is my first film. I was about to start my directorial journey with a short film. It was Remo sir who gave me the confidence and encouraged me to take the leap with a full length feature film. I have been assisting Remo D’Souza for a long time. I have known the three boys from the time they were working on Dance India Dance. I felt that doing a romantic comedy with them would be the right thing because I was confident that they would be able to take it to another level.”

Producer Lizelle adds, “Nawabzaade, my first film as a producer has shaped up really well. The chemistry between the film’s lead players is electrifying and you will see that in the trailer also. It’s a fun film which youngsters will love.”

T-Series’ High Rated Gabru, picturised on Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor is out

After Suit Suit (Hindi Medium), Banja tu raani (Tumhari Sulu) and Patola (Blackmail), viewers will get to see T-Series artist Guru Randhawa’s song in the forthcoming film Nawabzaade, directed by Jayesh Pradhan. The film’s cast includes the actors from ABCD 2, Dharmesh Yelande, Raghav Juyal and Punit Pathak.

Grooving to the popular Punjabi track will be young heartthrob Varun Dhawan and the beautiful Shraddha Kapoor, who we had last seen together in ABCD 2. The song which has been shot in a Mumbai studio has been choreographed by Remo D’Souza.
The original song by Guru has already crossed more than 400 million views on YouTube and is expected to soar further with its presence in a Bollywood film.

Speaking about being part of this special song, Varun informs, “Having worked with Raghav, Punit and Dharmesh, I know them to be very talented boys. When I heard Remo sir was doing a film with them I knew I had to be part of it in some way. So when this song came up, Shraddha and I decided to feature in this special video.” He adds, “It was a lot of fun, sharing screen space with Shraddha again. We are very comfortable with each other and High Rated Gabru is already a chartbuster.”

Shraddha says she too did not want to miss the opportunity of re-uniting with the ABCD 2 team. “I was all charged to work again with Remo sir, Varun and a few others from the ABCD 2 gang. When I got to know that we are going to be shooting a video for High Rated Gabru, I got even more excited because the song is fantastic and so loved. The whole experience of shooting it was fun. I felt nostalgic,” Shraddha chirps unable to hold back her excitement.

Bhushan Kumar of T-Series adds, “I am sure this song is now going to go on a different level. Varun and Shraddha had developed a fantastic camaraderie with the actors of ABCD 2. So it was not surprising that they agreed to be part of this video.”
Remo D’souza who has choreographed the special video maintains, “It was heartening to see that, Varun and Shraddha were so accommodating to give what it takes to make this number extraordinary. I am glad we could do this for my protégés from ABCD2. It will help to create a buzz around Nawabzaade.”

On his song being included in a Bollywood film Guru adds, “This is my third song being picked for a Bollywood film after songs in ‘Hindi Medium’ and ‘Tumhari Sulu’. It’s an exciting period for me as I am getting to work with a lot of new people. Varun Paji has been very fond of my original song and he suggested the same to the makers. I was all charged when I heard that we are recreating the song with Varun Paji, I’ve always been waiting for that. We have tried to maintain the vibe of the song with a few improvisations. I’m thankful to Bhushanji, Varun, Shraddha for such an amazing experience. I hope this version of High Rated Gabru with Shraddha and Varun’s power-packed dance moves receives as much love from the audience as the original track did.”

The song has released on YouTube today.
