21st February 2019

The trailer of Tigmanshu Dhulia's much-awaited film 'Milan Talkies' is out now. The trailer launch event happened at Gaiety Galaxy theatre. It was attended by the star cast including Ali Fazal, Shraddha Srinath, Ashutosh Rana, and Sikander Kher along with the director.

The launch had a Desi Romantic set up with cycle rickshaw, dhol and typical desi style props. Ali entered the venue on a bike whereas Shraddha arrived in a decorated cycle rickshaw.

'Milan Talkies' is a love story set in Uttar Pradesh around 2010-2013 when single screen theatres were still prominent in smaller Indian towns and film print was still in circulation.

Trailer opens with Ali Fazal wanting to be a director and direct one of the best films of the era. Meanwhile, he also falls for debutant Shraddha Srinath and then what begins is a totally filmy love story with a daughter's strict father played by Ashutosh and villain Sikander creating a much wanted masala onscreen. 

Ali Fazal says, "Milan Talkies is a very special film for me. It was a great experience working on this film with Tigmanshu Sir and the entire team. The reaction for the trailer is overwhelming and I can't wait to show the film to the audience. I strongly believe that there is something very earnest and honest about the film. Eventually, it's the audiences who decide good and bad. Milan Talkies is a story about stories and told from the grassroots of a common projectionist in a single screen theatre."

Director Tigmanshu Dhulia shares, "The trailer reaction is overwhelming and I am glad that the audiences liked it. The entire journey of Milan Talkies has been a rollercoaster ride and it is a very emotional moment for the entire cast and crew of the film. I am sure that the audiences will like the film."   

Producer P S Chhatwal shares, "Tigmanshu Dhulia and the entire team of Milan Talkies have done a brilliant job. I am happy with the response the trailer is getting. I am really looking forward to the release."

The film also stars Sanjay Mishra and Reecha Sinha. Produced by Filmy Keeda Productions in association with Om Prakash Bhatt (Purple Bull Entertainment), the film is set to release on 15th March 2019.
