Shahid & Kriti’s rom-com on Valentines Day 2024

According to sources close to the production house, the yet untitled film, touted to be ‘An Impossible Love Story’ will hit the big screen during the Valentines’ Day 2024 weekend. “It’s a decision taken in the best interest of the film. The makers are now looking to hit the big screen in the month of February – which is the month of love. The release period of Valentines’ Day is also in sync with the core plot of the film, appealing to the youth,” revealed a source close to the development.

The source further added the film rides on strong music and the makers will be capitalizing on the same through their promotional campaign. “The film has some peppy dance numbers and will feature Shahid and Kriti at their best showcasing their dancing skills. There is also a romantic number, which could catch up in a big way with the audience. The flavor of the story added with music will make it the perfect bet for Valentines' Day release for the young cine-going audience,” the source added.
