The trailer begins with Manu (Ayushmann Khurrana) lifting a heavy barbell while talking about how he is a certified fitness with a justdial profile to boast of. As he drops the barbell, his mom yells at him about how the building is shaking because of him! And this sets the tone for the trailer of ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’, an upcoming Abhishek Kapoor directorial.
Within a few seconds of the trailer, we see Manu pulling a truck with his bare hands while others are asking him the purpose of this heavy training & strict diet. The only problem one can figure up till now is that Manu does not want to marry until he becomes someone capable.
The ‘Jumba wali bibi’ is on her way to rent out a space in Manu’s gym when she has a stinky first encounter with Manu. Maanvi Brar (Vaani Kapoor) is a zumba instructor. Manu starts noticing Maanvi in action carefully & of course falls in love with her.
Some Punjabi numbers are in the pipeline for the audience which makes it impossible to remain seated. As they get closer, Manu and Maanvi are seen getting more passionate with each other. “Tum kuch alag hi ho, menu na ishq ho gaya hai”, says Manu when he realizes how madly he is in love with Maanvi. On proposing to her, there is a twist in the trailer. “There’s something else” says Maanvi and this something else is the fact that she is a transgender.
There is a question that emerges in Manu’s mind along with anger. He realizes that she is not what he thought she is, making him feel betrayed by her. The discussion of this problem with his friends does not go very well either as they do not seem experienced in that area of life.
Manu’s family gives his advice, “Dil ek hone chahiye, duniya apne aap ek ho jaati hai”. Everyone in his family is forcing him to get married to Maanvi or at least settle with her in a live-in. To end this ‘siyappa’, Manu asks Maanvi to reject him and take all the blame on herself to which she categorically refuses. The movie promises a “mind-bending” love story filled with upbeat numbers & a social message in tow.
‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ is all set to release in theatres on 10th December.
