Laapataa Ladies Teaser
The teaser for Laapataa Ladies looks promising as it immerses us in the rural setting of India and offers glimpses of situational comedy. The film is set in 2001 and follows the humorous chaos that ensues when two brides go missing from a train. Nitanshi Goel, Pratibha Ranta, Sparsh Shrivastava, Chhaya Kadam, and Ravi Kishan star in the lead roles. The teaser features two men reporting their lost brides to the police, with Ravi Kishan’s character asking for a photo of the bride, only to be shown a picture of her in wedding attire with her face covered.
