Actor Vicky Kaushal is all set to play DJ Mohabbat in Anurag Kashyap’s upcoming movie ‘Almost Pyaar’ with the original DJ Mohobbat. The filmmaker took to Twitter over the weekend, to share a post and inform fans of the project. He also posted a motion poster showing Vicky as DJ Mohabbat. He also revealed that the film’s song ‘Mohabbat Se Kranti’ will be released soon. He captioned the post, “Dharti ka seena phaad ke, aasman ke baadal chhant ke… Aa gayi mohabbat… Jo jaayegi kranti! Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohobbat in cinemas on February 3…”
The official trailer of the upcoming romantic drama was unveiled earlier this month. Alaya F had shard the trailer on her Instagram, and captioned, “TRAILER IS HERE!!!!!! Mohabbat se hi toh Kranti aayegi…yeh hai uski ek jhalak! Picture aur kranti dono shuru Feb 3rd se! #AlmostPyaarWithDJMohabbat Trailer Out Now.”
Anurag had earlier said, “‘Almost Pyaar’ with DJ Mohabbat, is very close to my heart as it’s something which has taken shape over the years from my conversations with my daughter. It’s a true labour of love with some amazing young actors, great energy, great music by Amit Trivedi with the help of some amazing collaborators like my DP Sylvester and my PD Shazia plus everyone else.”
He added, “It's my going back to my constant exploration of relationships vis a vis the generation which actually defines us and is our future. It's about love and all kinds of prejudices that plagues it. I feel great to move to the next phase of my life with this film.”
‘Almost Pyaar’ with DJ Mohabbat is touted as an ode to modern love. It looks at modern-day young relationships, and their exploration in a world plagued with prejudices, predatory behaviour, and the unwillingness of older generations to accept.
