Abhishek Dogra's directorial Fryday, starring Govinda and Varun Sharma (of Fukrey fame), is all set to cinemas on 12 October. The makers today have dropped the trailer. The trailer involves Govinda insulting his brother-in-law, played by Varun, in his usual comic style that he is best known for. And Varun, who has made audiences laugh in his previous outings, matches Govinda’s comic timing, beat by beat.
Taking to Instagram, Govinda shared Fryday trailer with a caption that read, "Sach se 100% dur, inke na taal mile na sur... milye is jija-saale ki jodi se jo aapko karenge hasne par majboor".
Fryday will mark Govinda's return to Bollywood after his last outing with Dipankar Senapati's Aa Gaya Hero. The film did not impress the critics or the audience and was unable to fare well at the box-office as well. He has also been a part of Kill Dil and Happy Ending, both of which also failed to make a mark.
The first look poster of the film was released in March featuring the tagline 'Jhooth Becho', hinting that the story could be about con, lies, and deceit.
Dogra has previously helmed the comedy Dolly Ki Doli with Sonam Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao.
During the trailer launch of Fryday, Govinda was asked if he would like to make a bio-pic on his life. Govinda told IANS, "I do not think that making a bio-pic on my life at this point of my career is a good idea - I am working on films. But I think starting from zero, in a film industry that does not give any newcomers a chance easily, to make it to the top is surely an interesting journey of my life; that is inspirational."
The film, produced by Sajid Qureshi of Inbox Pictures and co-produced by PVR Pictures, was earlier slated for release on 11 May but the makers did not want it to clash with Meghna Gulzar's spy thriller Raazi, writes Times of India. The date was postponed to 25 May, then June and now finally October as specified on the poster.
