Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya poster: Did Alia Bhatt actually lift Varun Dhawan?

The Dharma Productions film poster has kept our attention grabbed after the trailer and got us waiting for the theatre release

The first poster of Alia Bhatt- Varun Dhawan starrer Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya is out and it has got us hooked to the film. The poster has the Highway actor lifting a puzzled looking Varun and the poster shares striking similarity with Yash Raj Films’ cult classic Dilwaale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge! Let us point out the similarities for you: firstly the meadows, they resemble the sarson ke khet Simran ran across to unite with Raj! Secondly, Alia is lifting Varun! How can the popular DDLJ poster not swim the length of your mind upon seeing this one! The only difference is that it is not the macho man carrying the gorgeous dame on his shoulder; they have reversed the convention for this poster! Also, unlike Kajol who was happily perched on Shahrukh’s shoulder, Varun isn’t too pleased with being lifted off the ground. Even the outfits the dhamakedar jodi is wearing is reminiscent of DDLJ!

We couldn’t help but think of the recent wardrobe malfunction the 2 States actor had to suffer because an overexcited Varun unthinkingly picked her off the ground. It would have made life so much easier for the sought-after duo had Alia done the lifting just like in the poster!

HSKD is said to be a rom-com and after drawing all the similarities between it and DDLJ we hope that the film lives up to the standard set by the cult classic! The film is about a typical Delhi University duo Humpty (Varun) and Kavya (Alia), who fall in love with each other a month and a half prior to Kavya’s wedding with Sidhharth Shukla! What ensues thereon looks like an enchanting comedy and a fresh love-story
