Karan Johar's multi-starrer 'Jug Jugg Jeeyo' gets a release date
After a long wait, Karan Johar announced the date of his Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani starrer, Jug Jugg Jeeyo. The project's filming began in Chandigarh last year, but it came to a screeching halt when its cast and crew members started testing COVID-19-positive. However, the film has now been completed and will hit theaters on June 24 next year. Here are more details.
Why does it matter?
- Dharma Productions' last two outings, Shershaah and Sooryavanshi, turned out to be huge hits. While the former got released on Amazon Prime Video and starred Sidharth Malhotra, the latter had Akshay Kumar in the lead.
- With this, the production house probably got the much-needed boost and started announcing new projects and release dates of others in waiting.
- Jug Jugg Jeeyo is one among them.
Releasing the Dharma project in June is a safe bet
Johar has played smartly while deciding the film's premiere date. For now, no big release is planned on the same date or even a week prior. Ek Villain Returns will hit the theaters two weeks later, so that won't impact Jug Jugg Jeeyo's overall collections.
'There's nothing like family and I always believe that'
While making the announcement, Johar also released a short video that showed an engagement ring broken into four parts. He captioned the post with, "There's nothing like family and I always believe - we must celebrate that. The feeling, the emotion...the togetherness! #JugJuggJeeyo is a celebration of FAMILY! Coming to cinemas near you on 24th June 2022." It has been helmed by Raj Mehta.

Plot: 'It's a tale of two couples from different generations'
A source close to the project had earlier revealed to a media portal that the film will showcase "a unique point of about love, but with ample of humor." "It's a tale of two couples from different generations, entangled around the issues post marriage. The premise beautifully merges the generation gap, and puts out a unique point of about love (sic)," they said.
Film is YouTuber Prajakta Koli's first film with popular actors
Apart from Dhawan and Advani, the movie also stars Neetu Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, and Maniesh Paul. Interestingly, this will be YouTube star Prajakta Koli's first film with popular actors. The venture marks yet another Advani-Dharma Productions collaboration after Mehta's Good Newwz, Shershaah, and Govinda Naam Mera. Johar also had directed Advani's portion in Lust Stories, which had her playing the wife of Vicky Kaushal.
