- The trailer of Chhalaang released on Saturday
- It features Rajkummar and Zeeshan as PT teachers
- The film has been directed by Hansal Mehta
The makers of Chhalaang dropped the trailer of the film on Saturday and it is all about Rajkummar Rao and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub’s fight for pride. The duo feature as PT teachers in the film that also stars Nushrat Bharucha. The first half of the trailer shows how Montu (Rajkummar Rao), a “typical PT Master for whom it’s just a job,” falls in love with fellow teacher at his school – Neelu (Nushrat Bharucha). However, his life takes a new turn after another PT teacher – Mr Singh (Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub) – arrives at the school and becomes the villain of Montu and Neelu’s love story. The second half of the trailer shows that Montu, who loves his job but cannot sacrifice his pride for it, is hell-bent on defeating his senior PT teacher and for that, he starts training his students for a tough competition – a competition for pride.
The trailer also features glimpses of Satish Kaushik, Ila Arun and Saurabh Shukla. Chhalaang has been directed by Hansal Mehta and co-produced by Ajay Devgn, Luv Ranjan and Ankur Garg.
Sharing the trailer on social media, the makers described the plot like this: “Chhalaang is a hilarious, yet inspirational journey of a PT Master from a semi government funded school in Northern India. Montu (Rajkummar Rao) is a typical PT Master for whom it’s just a job. When circumstances put everything that Montu cares for at stake, including Neelu (Nushrat Bharucha) who he loves, Montu is forced to do what he has never done – Teach. Through Montu’s journey, Chhalaang humorously addresses the value of Sports Education in school curriculum.”
