Release date of the film is getting closer
‘What’s Love Got To Do With It?’ is a Jemima Khan film that has been mentioned in the media for a few years. Now, the official release date of the film is getting closer. To whet our appetites until we can go to theatres and witness it for ourselves, the team released the official trailer.
On Wednesday, Sajal Aly posted the 2.5-minute trailer to her Instagram page with the question, “How can you find enduring love in today’s world?”
Khan also shared the trailer, asking, “Is it better to walk into love than to tumble into it?”
Arranged marriage with a woman
The official trailer establishes the plot of the movie, which centres on a Pakistani man (Shahzad Latif) living in the UK who consents to an arranged marriage with a woman from her country (Aly). His neighbour and childhood friend Lily James, who is a filmmaker, chooses to record the procedure. She challenges love and her approach to it on this voyage, learning more about herself.
The teaser, in typical rom-com style, teases humorous moments like James calling the idea of an arranged marriage “Stockholm Syndrome” when Latif answers her question about love by saying, “You come to love the person you’re with.”
STUDIOCANAL International and Working Title Films creation
The movie, a STUDIOCANAL International and Working Title Films creation, will open in theatres on January 27. The film was directed by Indian director Shekhar Kapur and co-written by Khan. Aly, James, Latif, Shabana Azmi, Asim Chaudhry, and Emma Thompson play prominent roles.
On September 10, the movie will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
