DIL DHADAKNE DO: The ‘IT’ Summer Flick of 2015

Prepare to have your jaws floored and hearts swooned as the beginning of summer could not be graced with more sunshine and butterflies! B-town’s most awaited and star studded affair of this year, Dil Dhadakne Do (DDD) is scheduled for release on June 5th, 2015. Directed by Zoya Akhtar, with a cast of the finest roster of talent in Bollywood including: Anil Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Anushka Sharma and Shefali Shah; DDD is sure to captivate and entertain all of us Bollywood muses through a beautiful journey which is entirely illustrated through a cruise trip.

DDD_FirstLookMark your calendar B-town mavens; the big reveal of the first theatrical trailer is NEXT WEEK; April 15th, 2015. A-list actors/actresses associated with the film have started their strong character introductions with a ‘fresh and good-looking’ campaign through all sources of social media! AND of course I have joined in on all the fun, living my fan girl Bollywood moment and jumping the gun rather too quickly to share with all of you why this little piggy simply can’t wait for DDD and why she thinks it will be the ‘IT’ summer flick of 2015. Shall we …

– The Mehra Family – 


After heating it up in Gunday together, it was a pleasant surprise to come across the fact that Ranveer Singh (Kabir) and Priyanka Chopra (Ayesha) are playing family nice in this film as brother and sister!! A little strange at first but slowly the remarkable gift of talent that both these actors encompass sank in and now I can barely contain my thrill to see the chemistry they share as familia. Just to spruce things up and perfect the family wheel, add in the equation of Papa bear; Anil Kapoor (Kamal) and Momma bear; Shefail Shah (Neelam). Anil Kapoor finally playing the role of a father? I thought the day would never come .. It’s A-ok AK you still look as golden as your one, two ka 4 days 😉

– Ranveer Singh + Anushka Sharma – 

After their iconic Bitto, Shrusti jodi in Band Baaja Bharat; the dynamic duo and real life ex-lovers are playing each others love interest in DDD. Will their chemistry live up to expectations of fans and their killer pairing in Band Baaja Bharat? Time will only tell …

– Director; Zoya Akhtar – 

She directed Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. I am sure many can agree to this film being one of the most beautiful and inspirational movies they have ever seen! Zoya managed to get Katrina Kaif to deliver possibly the best performance of her career; need I say more? Aside, from the fact that DDD is definitely in great hands.

– Behind the Scene Shenanigans – 


Several months ago whilst shooting for the film, the entire crew was actively posting their day-day ventures through their personal Twitter and Instagram accounts. From taking group shots + selfies, partying, relaxing on the beach, snaps of the beautiful scenery, fine dining and even tweeting each other back and forth although they were together.. the crew did it all like one big happy family! The absolute best and my personal favorite … Ranveer Singh’s travel diaries of random, filtered captures he took throughout Europe (Barcelona, Istanbul, Cappadocia and the list goes on …) Ready to pack up and take a spontaneous vacation yet?

– Cruise Ship Vibes – 

Bollywood has made its sad attempts with Humraaz and U, Me aur Hum to encapsulate the picture perfect, cruise ship vacation which translates into a ridiculous love story of some sort. AND as the story later progresses it keeps getting more terrifying and heart-breaking; I’m not too sure if a restoration of The Titanic was on the itinerary, but regardless it was a fail. Here’s to hoping this star stunner will go down in history as a classic and the cruise ship setting will leave a remarkable and strong imprint in all of our hearts. PS: I am totally taking a cruise ship getaway to Cantina Island next week and you all can best believe that I will be living the DDD dream with whatever bit I have been granted with so far …


There you have it lovelies … bright and early on this *fingers crossed* rain free Saturday morning! Who is team DDD?!?! AND who’s character are you most looking forward to? Let me know in the comments below and be sure to follow me on my social media platforms. Have a wonderful weekend! Xo.

  1. and music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy and lyrics by Javed Akhtar…I need to watch this movie sooooon. I have to admit I’m very judgmental about Bollywood Movies. The music previews have to be good or I’m not setting foot inside the cinema

  2. Sooo looking forward to this. I’m not the biggest fan of Priyanka, but love Farhan Akhtar and have been rewatching some of my fave old school Anil Kapoor movies so totally ready for this one.
    Can’t wait!
