&pictures to premiere ‘Laila Majnu’ on 14 Sep
MUMBAI: Hindi movie channel &pictures is all set to premiere ‘Laila Majnu’ under the property ‘Saturday Premiere Nights’. The film will premiere on 14th September at 8 pm.
Set against the picturesque backdrop of Kashmir, ‘Laila Majnu’ is a new age representation of the ancient Middle Eastern folklore of Majnu and Laila. Belonging to two feuding families, Laila and Majnu incidentally cross paths one night, and a deeply passionate love story unravels between them. Known for mesmerising the audience with romantic dramas, renowned filmmaker, Imtiaz Ali has written this eternal love saga leaving the viewers enchanted.
Directed by Imtiaz Ali’s brother, Sajid Ali, Laila Majnu features debutantes Avinash Tiwary and Tripti Dimri in the lead.
While there are many adaptations of Laila Majnu’s classic love story, the team of brothers Sajid and Imitiaz Ali give it a modern and contemporary spin. Laila (Tripti Dimri) lives in her own sweet world, dreaming of ‘the special one’ who will love her till death. On a quest to find the right one, she meets the handsome hunk, Qais (Avinash Tiwary).
The story proceeds to a romantic intimacy developing between the two, against the age-old contention between their families. Their crazy romance soon becomes the talk of the town, which eventually causes problems between Qais and Laila’s family leading to them getting separated.
