This is the first time the trio, Ayushmann Khurrana, Kriti Sanon and Rajkummar Rao are coming up together.
About the title:
Kapil Chopra from BR Studio said, “It’s a fun film. Kriti’s family owns a mithai shop and that’s where the story takes off and hence the title. I always say Kriti is my Bareily Ki Barfi in the film.”
The makers of ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ unveiled the first teaser poster of Kriti’s character named Bitti. The poster looks vibrant, full of colors and looks like a truck load of sweetness. It gives a hint of mystery.
But more than that, the way Ayushmann left her a message on Twitter, is making things just like icing on the cake.
Take a look:

‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ sees Ashwiny and her husband team up as director and writer, Nitesh Tiwari for the second time after ‘Nil Battey Sannata’. The script of the movie is adapted from a French novel ‘The Ingredients of Love’. The setting of the story has changed from France to Uttar Pradesh. The movie is Junglee Pictures and BR Studio’s production.
The three actors will be playing very different roles in the movie. Ayushmann owns a printing press, Rajkumar is an author and Kriti plays a liberal thinking modern UP girl. We are eager to see how this love triangle will work out in the movie.
Rooted in the sub-culture of young India’s rustic heartland- Uttar Pradesh, this story is a slice of life, quirky ride of unexpectedness where Bitti, Chirag and Vidhrohi’s ways intermingle in search of ‘true love’.
Ayushmaan Khurrana posted public reactions to ‘What is Bareilly Ki Barfi?‘ on Instagram. Here it is:
The trailer is expected to be released on 19th July. The movie is set to be released on 18th August 2017.
