Lead cast calls Karan Johar to come up with release date

Published

on

Bollywood actors Kiara Advani, Varun Dhawan, Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor, recently, sat on a video conference call and decided to confront ‘Jug Jugg Jeeyo’ director Karan Johar to come with a release date of the film. The shooting of the movie has been completed months ago but the release was still pending. It is obvious for the actors to be eager about their film hitting the big screen.

As Karan has been delaying the dates due to his busy schedule, looks like the lead cast of the movie just couldn’t wait no longer and decided to make a call to the director. Karan Johar later shared the clip from their video call on his Instagram account with the caption, “Never too busy for this mad bunch!! Neetu ji, poor connection has left the world on the edge! But shh, let this family only tell you when you will meet them. Stay tuned, announcement coming at 4pm!!”

In the video all four stars can be seen joking around with each other in a polite way. The clip opens up to Varun and Kiara extending calls to Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor and then moves on to greeting each other. Varun then says, “See, Anil sir sabse senior hai yahan pe (Anil sir is the senior most among us)” to which the actor replies, “Arey yaar, senior hoga tera baap yaar! (Your dad is a senior).” Varun then quickly points out that Anil Kapoor is playing the role of his father in the film and asks Anil to shout at Karan and ask him to come up with a release date for their movie “Jug Jugg Jeeyo.”

It seems like Anil Kapoor felt sorry for Karan, as he is busy in shoots that is why he said, “Arey, Karan busy hain na yaar. Woh kya hain na Rocky shocky [Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani] ki shooting kar raha hain Ranbir [Kapoor] ke sath. (Karan is busy these days. Right now, he is shooting Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani)” Neetu Kapoor suddenly corrects him and says ‘Ranveer [Singh]’ not ‘Ranbir [Kapoor].’

Finally when the four decided that Kiara would make the call, Neetu receives a message from Karan that reveals the date scheduled for the release of the movie.

The movie is then set to release on June 24, 2022. Karan Johar later in the evening made an official announcement on his Instagram account while sharing stills from the film.

Have a look:

Where Anil Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani are in the leads roles of this film, YouTuber Prajakta Koli and television host Manish Paul would also be seen in the film as supporting characters.

Cast, Plot, Trailer, Release Date

Cash cow Disney is combining American’s insatiable appetite for K-Pop with its newfound, equally insatiable appetite for Korean TV and movies (lest we forget that two months ago, you couldn’t go online without seeing the words Squid Game) with Snowdrop, a drama starring Kim Jisoo of BLACKPINK and Jung Hae-in about two college students in a romance in South Korea in 1987, a year when a mass pro-democracy movement rocked the country politically, forcing the country to hold elections. Jung Hae-in will play a graduate student with a secret past and Jisoo will play a college student. The series premieres on Disney+ on December 18 and will air on the weekends at 10:30 pm KST, which is 8:30 am EST, a gift for those whose New Year’s resolution is to get up earlier.

We don’t know much about the series yet — but based on the cast and promo art, we can safely assume it will rock streaming records and take over your Twitter feed in due time.

New ‘Snowdrop’ character posters deliver on the drama

New character posters of Josoo and Jung Hae-In were released on November 30, showing sultry photos of Jisoo and Hae-in behind what appears to be broken glass, conjuring images of big street protests.

JTBC, the series’ broadcasting company, also released a poster earlier this month, showing the two gazing lovingly — dare we say skeptically? — into each other’s eyes. Side note: We love the white collar and blush sweater.

It’s not Jisoo’s first foray into acting

Besides being a drama club kid in high school, the virtuoso Jisoo had cameos in the 2015 K-drama The Producers and 2019’s Arthdal Chronicles, though Snowdrop marks her first major step into acting.

It’s a romance amidst an intense political backdrop

According to NME, the plot of Snowdrop follows a graduate student who, after being attacked at a protest, hides out in a female dormitory at the Hosoo Women’s University, with the help of a student who finds him — eventually developing a romantic relationship.

Three teaser trailers have been released

You can watch the most recent one here, which combines dreamy piano, big 1980s sleeves, and gorgeous shots of the wind in Jisoo’s hair as she rides on the back of a bike with a bone-chilling, thriller moment where she’s pointing a weapon.

With 2021 coming to a close Netflix is looking ahead to 2022. The streamer announced new release dates for highly-anticipated shows like Vikings: Valhalla and revealed some more genre shows coming next year.

Vikings: Valhalla is a spinoff of History’s popular Vikings series. While streamers like Netflix are known for rescuing shows from cable, Vikings held a proper season finale in 2020 before planning a new spinoff at Netflix. Vikings: Valhalla will premiere on Netflix on February 25, and there are new photos from the show you can see in the gallery below.

Vikings: Valhalla is set 100 years after the end of the original series in the early 11th century. The series will follow famous Vikings like Leif Eriksson, his sister Freydis Eriksdotter, and a Nordic prince named Harald Sigurdsson. This is also a time where the Vikings and English royals will be at odds over supremacy.

Netflix also announced release dates for Archive 81 which will premiere on January 14, 2022, In From the Cold which will premiere on January 28, 2022, and Raising Dion Season 2 which will premiere on February 1, 2022.

Archive 81 follows an archivist named Dan Turner (Mamoudou Athie) whose job is to restore a collection of damaged videotapes from 1994. These tapes were created by a documentary filmmaker named Melody Pendras (Dina Shihabi) investigating a cult. As work on restoring the tapes continue, Dan believes he can rescue Pendras from her terrifying end 25 years ago.

In From the Cold stars Margarita Levieva as Jenny, an American woman and single mom with a dark history as a Russian spy with special abilities given to her by the KGB. She’s tasked by the CIA to solve the mystery behind a series of bloody incidents involving someone with her abilities.

Finally, Raising Dion is a continuation of Nicole and Dion who developers superhero-like abilities. Set two years after the defeat of the Crooked Man, Dion continues to develop his powers while meeting other superpowered students like Brayden.

These shows only cover Netflix’s first two months of 2022. Netflix announced a wider slate of genre shows coming out that year, but without release dates. They include previously announced shows like Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, The Sandman, and Resident Evil, as well as The Cuphead Show!, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, and a new Mike Flannigan horror series, The Midnight Club.

Meanwhile, Netflix is set to end 2021 with The Witcher season 2 coming in December. Netflix also recently released the live-action Cowboy Bebop which you can check out our review here.
