Trailer: Raj Kapoor’s grandson Armaan in ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’

Armaan Jain, grandson of Bollywood legend Raj Kapoor is ready with his debut movie. The trailer of his film ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’ have come out yesterday. The romantic comedy film is being produced by Dinesh Vijan and Saif Ali Khan who is also Armaan’s brother-in law. Sunil Lulla of Eros is also involved with the project as co-producer. Apart from Armaan, there are two more debuts in the film. Armaan is paired with debutant Deeksha Singh. The film is also the directorial debut of Arif Ali, the brother of popular director Imtiaz Ali. The music for the film is created by music legend A.R. Rahman. The movie tell the tale of 2 friends who plan to get wedded and are faced with problems. The title of the film is taken from the super hit song ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’ from the 1970’s hit film ‘Yaadon Ki Baaraat’.

The trailer is nicely made and looks to showcase the theme of the film, the lead pair and their chemistry all at the same time. Set in the background of a catchy Rahman tune, it will help to raise some interest about the upcoming film which is scheduled to release on 4th July.  But often a film with a good trailer fails to make the same impact after the release; we will have to wait for two more months to know about the fate of ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’.

Armaan is the son of Reema Jain. Reema is the daughter of the late great Raj Kapoor and sister of Rishi and Randheer Kapoor. Armaan first came into limelight during his cousin sister Kareena’s wedding. So far everyone agrees that he has the ‘star look’ but does he have the ‘star skills’ like his star cousin Ranbeer? That remains to be seen. Before trying his hands at acting, Armaan first gathered experience by working as an assistant director. He even worked as the assistant of Karan Johar. His debut film was announced last year but for several months nothing much was heard about it. It even went without a title for six months. But things have picked up since and Saif Ali Khan officially announced his involvement with the project sometime back. It also took some time to finalize the lady opposite Armaan. Several newcomer names did the rounds before the makers finally decided on Deeksha. Now it is time to see how much their hard work will pay off.
