In Arjun Kapoor and Rakul Preet Singh starrer, there is a love story spanning three-generation, starting in 1947 and continuing till 2020. There is a parallel between Arjun and Rakul’s characters in the present day and the forced break-up between John and Aditi’s characters in 1947 following the Partition. He plays a Sardar for the first time. John Abraham in his Sikh avatar is powerful and lovable and his chemistry will light up the screen. “It’s a story of love, values, bonds and family over two different eras.
John and Aditi’s is an old-school love story while Arjun and Rakul are in a modern-day relationship,” says a source. John, who is producing the film with Nikkhil Advani and Bhushan Kumar says, “When I heard the script, I instantly knew that this would be a special part, and when Kaashvie suggested I play it, it was difficult to refuse.” Nikkhil concludes by saying the film will showcase love to a generation growing up on social media: “The idea is to realise true love through the story of a woman who’s been yearning for closure for 70 years.”
