Taking to his Instagram account, Karan Johar shared the motion poster of Jigra with a heartfelt caption. “The return of…my #Jigra, @aliaabhatt once again on this exceptional story helmed by @vasanbala. A story of unbreakable love & unshakable courage!” the filmmaker wrote in the caption of his post. Watch:
The motion poster hinted at the story of Jigra to be a tale of a sister’s love for her brother and how she would leave no stone unturned to protect her sibling. The video shows an artwork of Alia in a shirt and trousers with a backpack. The actor can be seen standing on the streets surrounded by neon lights and hoardings. While Alia’s face is not shown in the poster, her voiceover can be heard in the background. The actor can be heard saying “Dekh mujhe. Meri rakhi pehenta haina tu? Tu mere protection mein hai. Tujhe main kuch bhi hone nahi dungi. Kabhi bhi.” (Look at me. You wear my rakhi right? You are under my protection. I won’t let anything happen to you. Ever).
Starring Alia Bhatt in the lead role, the film marks her first time onscreen collaboration with Vasan Bala. The film will also mark Alia’s first time collaborating with Karan Johar for a production. Reacting to the same, Alia took to her Instagram account and wrote, “From debuting in a Dharma production to now producing a film with them, in many ways, it feels like coming full circle from where I started.” Jigra is slated for a theatrical release on September 27, 2024.
Meanwhile, Alia will also be seen in Jee Le Zara with Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra. The actor will reportedly star in YRF’s first ever female-led spy film with Sharvari Wagh.
