A new poster of Kedarnath, the new film by director Abishek Kapoor, starring Sushant Singh Rajput and debutante Sara Ali Khan, has been released. The image, posted on social media by the star and director, was released on Tuesday. Filming for the film has just begun, so we don’t get to see either of the stars featured on the poster - it’s mostly a mock-up of various images - but we do get a sense of what the film will be about.

Sharing the poster, Sushant wrote, “A journey of faith...and love !!Come join us with #KedarnathFirstLook #SaraAliKhan @Abhishekapoor @Kriarj @balajimotionpic @TSeries.” The film’s logline goes ‘Love is a pilgrimage’.

We see mountains, a temple, a statue of Lord Shiva, and in the corner, a man (it’s unclear if he is Sushant’s character) on what appears to be a pilgrimage - at least if the film’s tagline (love is a pilgrimage) were taken as a clue. There is also a silhouette of a man and a woman.

The film will reportedly have Sushant playing a ‘pitthoo’ -- people who ferry pilgrims on their backs to the shrine. The actor is already training hard for the role. The film is also the Bollywood debut of Sara Ali Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter.

According to early buzz, the film will revolve around the Uttarakhand floods of 2013 and how the human spirit persisted in the face of tragedy. Ekta Kapoor, the co-producer of Kedarnath, had earlier said, “When we heard the story, we knew this was it. It’s Sara’s debut opposite Sushant. That makes it a fresh pair and adds an edge to the project. Kedarnath is an emotional and riveting tale that blends India’s beauty with a love story from the heartland.”

The lead pair visited the Kedarnath temple on the eve of the film’s shooting. Pictures from their visit were shared online.

Kedarnath is a reunion of star and director. Sushant Singh Rajput and Abhishek Kapoor worked together in the actor’s debut film, Kai Po Che! Produced by Balaji Telefilms and KriArj Entertainment, the movie is scheduled to hit the theatres in June 2018.

Previously on August 19, Kapoor had also shared the first, 18 second, motion poster with a caption, "To new beginings #kedarnath #kedarnathmotionposter @itsSSR #saraalikhan @kriarj #jaibholenath @Gitspictures."
