Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon's Raabta hits the screen today after winning the copyrights infringement case against Telugu film Magadheera. The makers of Magadheera withdrew their injunction plea a day before the film's release. Raabta like the S S Rajamouli-directed Magadheera is a love story with the theme of reincarnation. Magadheera producer Allu Aravind, like Twitter thought that Raabta was a copy of the film starring Ram Charan Teja. However, that chapter is now closed. Raabta, directed by Dinesh Vijan, is the story of two lovers - played by Sushant and Kriti - who are separated by death (thanks to a conniving villain, played by Jim Sarbh). They meet again centuries later but will their love story finally get a happy ending? The answer is out on screens.
Raabta is co-produced by Homi Adajania and T-Series' Bhushan Kumar. The film features Rajkummar Rao in cameo as a 327-year-old man (probably the only witness of Sushant and Kriti's love story). Actress Deepika Padukone, whom Homi Adajania considers his 'lucky charm,' has a special song appearance in the Raabta.
This week's other big release is Rajkummar Rao and Shruti Haasan's Behen Hogi Teri. It your mohalle-wali love story. Gattu (Rajkummar Rao) is in love with his neighbour Binny (Shruti Haasan), who has bro-zoned him because the locals perceive neighbours as brothers and sister. Will Gattu be able to convince Binny and others otherwise?
