The first trailer for A Gentleman, the new film starring Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez, was released online on Monday.

Malhotra plays Gaurav, a ‘sundar, susheel’ sort of man, deemed too ‘safe’ by his fiance, played by Jacqueline. He has his life sorted, and can’t wait to settle down.

But beneath his squeaky clean surface, lies a secret. He is some sort of spy/assassin, and a gang of criminals, led by Suniel Shetty, is after him.

The trailer soon reveals another major plot twist, that Jacqueline, too, has been blessed with super-skills. The film, meanwhile, looks to be inspired by many Hollywood movies, most notably Tom Cruise’s Knight & Day, which has already been remade in India with Hrithik Roshan’s Bang Bang, and American Ultra, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart.

Getting Suniel Shetty to play the villain against an undercover spy also brings to mind Shah Rukh Khan’s Main Hoon Na.

A Gentleman, directed by Raj & DK (Go Goa Gone) is scheduled for release on 25 August.
