The Sardar ka Grandson trailer landed online Wednesday afternoon. The Netflix original also features Arjun Kapoor, Rakul Preet Singh, Aditi Rao Hydari and John Abraham in prominent roles. The film is directed by Kaashvie Nair. It is expected to land online on May 18.
The trailer opens with Arjun explaining the technical term of structural relocation, where a whole house is moved from one place to another. The change is compared to bringing a “container of ghee, from village to town”. When he is having fun, Arjun talks about the ‘great Punjabis’ who would like, as he says, “dry their towels on the moon, if given the chance”.
The story then shifts to Neena Gupta. Currently in Amritsar, she wants to visit Lahore and go to the home she had set up with her husband. Despite all efforts, she is refused permission. Arjun then decided to get her her house, if he can’t go to it. It turns out Aditi is playing a younger Neena, and John is her husband.
Calling it personal, and a “removable mix” of her attachment to her grandparents and childhood home, the director said in a press release, “It’s celebrating ‘ the unconditional love between grandparents and grandchildren. “
“This is the first time I’ve played a character like this. A lot of effort was made to demonstrate the way Sardar spoke, looked, and responded to situations. Sardar Ka Grandson is a joyful journey filled with mixed emotions that will make the audience smile, while also leaving a tear or two in their eyes. I wanted everyone to watch this movie with their family and have a great time, ”Neena had said.
Arjun also said, “Sardar Ka Grandson is an emotional film with a strong message. This will be a perfect family viewing experience – for everyone! Being part of the film with such an amazing ensemble cast was a very pleasant experience and shooting with them never felt like work. The experience constantly helped me learn and grow. I can’t wait for the audience to see this delicate relationship between a grandmother and her grandson, which was never portrayed in this way. ”
