In one of the funniest spoofs of the year so far, Bollywood’s new boy-on-the-block Varun Dhawan has released a heartfelt plea to find a bride (‘Dulhania’). The 51 second rib-tickling ‘lonely heart’ YouTube advert is a promotion teaser video for Varun and starlet Alia Bhatt’s forthcoming rom-com Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, which is produced by Karan Johar’s production banner Dharma Productions on 11th July 2014. The film is directed by Shashank Khaitan.
In the clip, a despondent ‘Humpty’ (Varun Dhawan) appeals for ‘Miss Right’ to enter into his life soon. He begins by telling all the ladies watching not to laugh at his name, as it is not his fault that he bears the same moniker as a rotund nursery rhyme character. In a further bungled attempt to woo his soul mate, ‘Humpty’ says that his ideal match would be Bollywood beauties Deepika Padukone or Katrina Kaif, but that in life things aren’t often perfect, and so he’s willing to settle for second best if she comes along!
The hilarious monologue concludes with ‘Humpty’ desperately asking women to ‘What’s App’ him to show their interest in becoming his wife. Well Ranbir looks like he’s taking all your women! Guess one can fantasize!
Turning up an Indian masala feature, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania portrays the lead actors, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt, in young and vibrant avatars. Varun plays the titular middle class Delhi guy, Humpty Sharma, and Alia is the small town girl, Kavya Pratap Singh creating a deliciously romantic film, set in north India.
