The trailer features Rajkummar as the narrator of a play. He recites the story of the time he fell in love with a girl, played by Sonam. Her family is looking for a suitable match for her and while there are several good options, she isn’t ready to say yes to any of them. She says she has a secret, something that causes her parents to turn against her. Bits from the trailer, like showing two women being torn apart by a mob, hint that she has fallen in love with a girl.

The trailer looks colourful and full of life and just might be the ‘unexpected love story’ it promises to be.
