Shruti Haasan scores a double whammy this Friday

MUMBAI: Bollywood releases for this Friday, 19 July are - D-Day and Ramaiya Vastavaiya. D-Day is an intense action film, while Ramaiya Vastavaiya is a mix of romance and comedy.

Both movies feature Shruthi Haasan in the cast, which is a rare incidence in Bollywood by any standards. Shruti Haasan is playing a role of an ordinary village girl in Ramaiya Vastavaiya and a prostitute in D-Day.

Ramaiya Vastavaiya is a musical romance movie and a remake of Prabhu Deva‘s directorial debut Telugu blockbuster Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana. Directed by Prabhu Deva, the movie introduces Girish Kumar, son of producer Kumar Taurani and Shruti Haasan plays the lead lady opposite Girish.

Ramaiya Vastavaiya was also remade into Tamil with the title Something Something… Unakkum Enakkum and also in Bengali which was called I Love You; all of them were super hits in their respective regions.


Whereas, directed by Nikhil Advani, D-Day is an Indian crime-thriller starring Arjun Rampal, Shruti Haasan, Irrfan Khan and Huma Qureshi in pivotal roles.

D-Day is the story of four modest protagonists, all with varying background stories and a common mission that brings them together on foreign soil to execute one such mission.

With both films in different genres releasing on the same day, let us see on Friday how they are going to be received by the audience.
