Movie trailers are usually meant to create a buzz and set expectations among audiences high. But the promo for Arjun Rampal and Chitrangda Singh’s next film, Inkaar, has ended up going through more than four additional cuts, thanks to the sizzling on-screen chemistry between the two.
Inkaar, which is about sexual harassment at the workplace, will see Arjun and Chitrangda battle it out in a war of the sexes. A source close to the film says, “Played as a courtroom drama, the content of Inkaar is bold and controversial. The theatrical trailer of the film has gone through four revisions as the team feels that the content is too steamy. They want the revisions to be honest so that the film doesn’t look cheap.” The source further adds, “This is an intelligent film and therefore the team wants the target audience to be communicated correctly.”
Chitrangada Singh was last seen in films like Ye Saali Zindagi and Desi Boyz.
The trailer of the movie was originally supposed to be played with this week’s release, the Aamir Khan-starrer Talaash. However, it got delayed as the required approvals couldn’t be obtained. “It will now come out this Friday, but we couldn’t attach it to Khiladi 786,” says the source. “The trailer will be ready only by today, and the film has already gone into print. There was no way they could be released together,” the source adds.
Inkaar, which is being directed by Sudhir Mishra, has already faced issues with its promos and teasers. Recently, the makers decided to cut a few dialogues from the main trailer and release them online instead, due to their explicit content.
