Award-winning pop singer, composer and actor Ali Zafar follows up his popular hits Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Tere Bin Laden with the cross-continent romantic comedy LONDON PARIS NEW YORK starring opposite Aditi Rao Hydari (Rockstar) opening in North American theaters on March 2. Unlike most Bollywood films, LPNY features its multi-talented stars Zafar and Hydari singing their own songs on the soundtrack.
The love story spans three countries and eight years capturing the angst of the twenties – the most dramatic period of one’s life – when you have to find a career, you have your first significant relationship and most importantly form your identity in this world.
This is story about Lalitha, a middle class south Indian girl from Chembur (an eastern suburb in Mumbai) who is on her way to New York to study politics with full scholarship, and Nikhil, a Punjabi rich kid from Bandra (a posh western suburb of Mumbai) who is going to study Filmmaking in London on 100% dad’s money. They decide to hangout together one evening in London and find that they are completely drawn to each other even as their future lies on separate continents.
The film follows their personal journey and their love story as they meet in London, Paris and New York for a night each over eight years. The film is in three chapters and each chapter is shot in a manner that mirrors the mental state of Nikhil and Lalitha.
The brand new theatrical trailer has just premiered for LONDON PARIS NEW YORK.
