Actor and singer Diljit Dosanjh has shared the first trailer for his upcoming Punjabi comedy film Honsla Rakh.
Diljit Dosanjh stars in the film alongside Shehnaaz Gill and Sonam Bajwa.
The Punjabi singer plays an NRI in Canada while Shehnaaz plays his wife.
They go on a date and it results in an accidental pregnancy.
She then files for divorce and insists that Diljit should have custody of the unborn child.
Shinda Grewal, the son of actor Gippy Grewal, plays Diljit’s son.
In the trailer, we see Diljit develop as a single father and take care of his son.
As his son grows older, Diljit falls in love with another woman, played by Sonam.
He tries to woo her in a bid to have a mother figure for his son. However, things are turned upside down when his first wife returns.
The Honsla Rakh trailer was released on September 27, 2021.
Within a few hours, the trailer accumulated over a million views on YouTube.
The Punjabi film stars Diljit Dosanjh in the lead.
The film marks Shehnaaz’s first project since the tragic death of Sidharth Shukla. As a result, she has not taken part in any promotional content for the film.
Shehnaaz had travelled to Canada earlier in 2021, to shoot for the film. Filming wrapped up on April 1, 2021.
Diljit Thind, the producer of Honsla Rakh, recently said:
“We are waiting for her to recover and heal from the grave loss.
“We had originally planned to shoot the song on September 15 in London, but that couldn’t happen because of obvious reasons.
“We will finalise a new date soon and would want Shehnaaz to be a part of it, too, as she is an integral part of the film.
“I am in touch with her manager and hoping that she will contact us in a few days.”
The trailer led to netizens praising Shehnaaz for her look.
One person wrote: “First movie as lead actress with her dream co-star. I wish all the happiness and success to Shehnaaz Gill. I know ur gonna rock it baby.”
Another said: “Her eyes, expression and everything are so much on point. I mean Shehnaaz Gill, the actor has so much depth.”
The trailer comes after the Honsla Rakh promotional poster was released on September 25, 2021.
In the poster, Shehnaaz is seen holding toys, Diljit cradles the baby and Sonam holds baby food.
Honsla Rakh was directed by Amarjit Singh Saron and written by Rakesh Dhawan.
The film also marks the debut of Diljit as a producer.
The Punjabi comedy film will be released on October 15, 2021, to coincide with the Dussehra holidays in India.
