Malaal trailer: Meezaan and Sharmin Segal’s love-hate relationship transforms into a tragedy. Watch here
The trailer of Malaal, a film that marks the debut of Javed Jaffrey’s son Meezaan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s niece Sharmin Segal is out. It shows their intense love story that begins with a love-hate relationship but goes through a tragic struggle.
Set in the heart of Maharashtra, the film’s trailer shows Meezaan and Sharmin as residents of a crowded slum in Mumbai. The curly-haired, salwar-kameez clad Sharmin seems to be an outsider and faces a lot of opposition from the slum’s popular lad, played by Meezaan. His dialogue, “Humare logo ko hata ke har cheez pe kabza kar rahe hain ye. Indian ho to India me jaake raho na, Mumbai me kaahe ko aaya hai (These people are encroaching on everything by removing our people. If you are an Indian then go and live in India, why have you come to Mumbai,” invites attention.
Complete with song and dance sequences in traditional getups, a Ganpati festival in the background and Marathi dialogues, the film reminds us of recent drama, Dhadak that marked the Bollywood debut of Janhvi Kapoor opposite Ishaan Khatter.
The first look of the film was revealed a day before, showing Sharmin Segal seated in front of Meezaan on a bike with her back to the road. Directed by Directed by Mangesh Hadawale, the film is produced by Bhansali along with Bhushan Kumar, Mahaveer Jain and Krishan Kumar. It is set to hit theatres on June 28.
While Meezaan was a in a black Indo-western outfit, Sharmin donned a pastel green suit for the event. All from Javed to Bhansali were present at the trailer launch of the film which proved to be a family affair. Bhansali’s mother Leela Bhansali also attended the event.
Bhansali’s next directorial is titled Inshallah and stars Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt in lead roles. The film had made headlines for its unusual casting due to the huge age difference between the two actors. His last film Padmaavat, starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, had collected over Rs 300 crore at the box office.
