The film revolves around a star-crossed couple Kartika (Radhika Madan) and Jaggi (Sunny Kaushal), where the former is engaged to someone else before falling for Jaggi. The trailer- 2:15 minutes long - starts with Kartika saving Jaggi from drowning and giving him CPR, which the latter considers a kiss. He overtly expresses his feeling for her.
“Friends tu apne mangetar ko bana na (Go make your fiancé your friend), I toh love you,” Jaggi is seen telling her.
The likes of Mohit Raina and Diana Penty also make appearances in the film.
Talking about the film, producer Dinesh Vijan said, “As a genre, love stories are timeless, they have always been embraced by audiences. An emotion each and every one of us has felt, the agony, the ecstasy, the whole grandeur of romance is what we have tried to capture in Shiddat.”
Radhika and Sunny shared their trailer on their social media pages.
“Shiddat trailer! Feel the power of love with #ShiddatTrailer, out now. #Shiddat releasing on 1st October on @disneyplushotstar #DisneyPlusHotstarMultiplex,” their Instagram caption read.
Shiddat has been directed by Kunal Deshmukh. It was shot in Mumbai, London, Paris and Glasgow. Its release was pushed from September last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
