Whereas, Sonam Kapoor’s Sweety in her childhood dreams about how she’ll fall in love with someone and get married one day. As she grows old, Sweety’s parents start looking for suitable guy for her. But turns out she has a secret which is stopping her from saying yes to any of the men.

It tells the story of a secret lesbian woman coming out to her traditional Punjabi family.
“True love ke raaste mein, koi na koi siyaapa hota hi hota hai. Agar na ho, toh love story mein feel kaisi aayegi?” Sonam says in the end of the trailer which has a tagline of “the most unexpected romance of the year.”
The film directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar and produced by Vidu Vinod Chopra also highlights the coming together of the electrifying chemistry of Anil Kapoor and Juhi Chawla after a decade. The trailer also spots a scene where Kapoor is seen asking the actress “Aap mere naal partnership karoge?’ to which she replies, “Kis type ki partnership, professional ya personal?” reminding us of movies like Deewana Mastana and Jhooth Bole Kauwa Kaate.
The movie also features Regina Cassandra (love interest of Sweety Kapoor) and Madhumalti Kapoor. Let’s wait and watch whether her family will allow to #LetLoveBe ?
Produced by Vinod Chopra Films and Fox Star Studios the movie will be released on February 1, 2019. The movie’s title comes from a hit song of the same name from a 1994 period drama 1942: A Love Story, which starred Anil Kapoor. A reworked version of the song is also being featured in the trailer.
