A new poster of Kedarnath, the new film by director Abishek Kapoor, starring Sushant Singh Rajput and debutante Sara Ali Khan, has been released. The image, placed on social mass media by the superstar and director, was released on Thursday. Filming for the film has just started, so we do not get to see either of the superstars included on the poster – it’s mostly a mock-up of various images – but we do get a feeling of what the film will be about.

We see mountains, a temple, a statue of Lord Shiva, and in the corner, a man (it’s unclear if he is Sushant’s persona) on what appears to be a pilgrimage – at least if the film’s tagline (love is a pilgrimage) were considered as a clue. There is also a silhouette of a man and a woman.
The film will reportedly have Sushant playing a ‘pitthoo’ — people who ferry pilgrims on their backs to the shrine. The professional has already been training hard for the role. The film is also the Bollywood debut of Sara Ali Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s little girl.
According to early excitement, the film will revolve around the Uttarakhand floods of 2013 and the way the human soul persisted in the face of tragedy. Ekta Kapoor, the co-producer of Kedarnath, got early said, “When we heard the storyline, we knew this is it. It’s Sara’s debut opposite Sushant. That makes it a fresh couple and adds an edge to the project. Kedarnath can be an psychological and riveting tale that blends India’s beauty with a love story from the heartland.”

Kedarnath is a reunion of legend and director. Sushant Singh Rajput and Abhishek Kapoor performed mutually in the actor’s debut film, Kai Po Che! Made by Balaji Telefilms and KriArj Entertainment, the movie is slated going to the theatres in June 2018.
