The trailer of Anurag Kashyap’s next Almost Pyaar With DJ Mohabbat was released by the makers on Thursday, January 19. The romantic drama stars Alaya F, daughter of Pooja Bedi and her ex-husband Farhan Ebrahim Furniturewala, and debutant Karan Mehta.
The trailer shows Anurag Kashyap’s take on the Gen Z relationships with Alaya F and Karan playing dual characters, with a pair in Dalhousie and another in London. Set in a small town in India, the story touches on the aspects of the young generation’s aspirations and religion, while not much is revealed about the other story set abroad. In the midst of all this, there is a DJ named DJ Mohabbat who seems to be the connecting factor between the two stories.
This will be the third film and second theatrical release for Alaya F after her debut Jawaani Jaaneman came out in 2020 and her second film was the romantic thriller Freddy which was released directly on Disney+ Hotstar last December. On the other hand, Karan Mehta marks his debut with the upcoming romantic drama. He is the son of Rakesh Mehta, a famous director in Punjabi cinema who has directed Pollywood films like Rang Punjab, Ik Sandhu Hunda Si and Yaara Ve, among others.
