Starring Varun Dhawan and Janhvi Kapoor, the romantic drama Bawaal produced by Sajid Nadiadwala of Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment in collaboration with Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and Nitesh Tiwari’s Earthsky Pictures, will have its exclusive global premiere on Prime Video in India and across 200 countries and territories on July 21.

On July 9, the producers launched the trailer of the film at a grand event held aboard the magnificent Queen Elizabeth II in Dubai. All five were present along with Wardha Nadiadwala and Manish Menghani, Director of Content Licensing, Prime Video India. They were all in the capital city to commence the international publicity for the timeless love story.

Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Bawaal revolves around Ajay Dixit, an ordinary albeit popular high-school history teacher, also known as Ajju bhaiya, who enjoys a kind of celebrity status in his town, courtesy the fake image he has built about himself. Circumstances compel him to embark on a World War II trail in Europe, and he is forced to take along his newlywed wife Nisha, with whom he shares a strained relationship. What follows is a series of events that test his marriage and force him to confront the biggest war of them all—the war within.

Shot in India and multiple international locales (Lucknow and Kanpur to Paris, Amsterdam, Serbia and countries like Poland and Germany), this love story has a meaningful message, which will resonate with audiences worldwide.

Manish Menghani, Director of Content Licensing, Prime Video India, said, “Bawaal is an exceptional film, that is truly meant for the global stage, and we’re taking it to an audience that spans across the globe by launching the trailer here in Dubai today, and premiering the film in over 200 countries and territories.”

Sajid said, “Bawaal is a story that will be regarded as an epic in the time to come.” Added Nitesh, “Great love stories deserve to be experienced and they always find a medium to reach an audience. Over the years, some of these stories have become true epics, not because of a grandiose scale, but because of the heart-stringing, gut-wrenching essence that makes the audience feel every emotion.”

He went on, “Bawaal is an Indian film that will appeal to audiences across the world. It will make you feel the jitters of nervousness, the joy of togetherness, the pain of separation, and so much more. Varun and Janhvi have brilliantly portrayed the roles of Ajju and Nisha, taking you on a journey from small-town India to Europe, which will leave an indelible mark on your hearts and mind.”

And Varun Dhawan declared, “A definitive landmark in my career, Bawaal has been a challenging journey for me, but it has also been one of the most exciting and an extremely rewarding one too. Despite his popularity, Ajju is constantly warring with circumstances beyond his control. A character so intricately woven but literally with a bawaal within and all around, that it will hold a special place in my heart. I just cannot wait for the audience from all across the globe to watch and experience this unconventionally beautiful romantic tale of Ajju and Nisha. Dubai is like a second home to me, and I couldn’t think of a better place to kick-start promotions for this global film with an Indian heart.”

Janhvi Kapoor added, “As actors we play roles that are either made for us, or ones to which we adapt. Rarely do we get the opportunity to embody a role so coveted that offers an actor more scope to perform. In this unique romantic tale, Nisha is seemingly a simple girl with hopes and dreams, but she is so endearing that she makes you want to feel every emotion that she is experiencing. Nisha is taking a journey that will make you look beyond the surface into her life, her love, and everything in between.”

She also said, “Working on the film was an unforgettable experience, and there was so much to learn. With such people, you start believing in yourself quite more, and such films make me think of the kind of person I want to be. Believe me, I as pinching myself every day to realize that I was working with this level of filmmakers—Sajid Nadiadwala-sir and Wardha (Nadiadwala) ma’am, Nitesh-sir and his wife Ashwiny-ma’am besides Varun.”
