Vicky Kaushal is set to star in another family drama after the success of Zara Hatke Zara Bachke. The Great Indian Family is produced by Yash Raj Films and stars Manushi Chillar in the lead role. The film, directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, will be released in theatres on September 22.
The first teaser for the film was released on Monday, providing a glimpse into the comedic family drama. The storyline, set in rural India, revolves around the chaos that unfolds within Vicky’s character’s family as a result of unexpected events beyond their control.
The actor passionately discusses the importance of family bonds in the teaser until he becomes emotional about his eccentric family members. He even refers to his family as a “snake” capable of destroying his dreams. Then, a chorus of voices accuses him of speaking negatively about his loved ones. He abruptly shifts his tone, stating that he wishes to warn the audience about “The Great Indian Family.”

Manushi expressed her delight, saying, “I’m super excited and thrilled that two of my films have been announced today. ‘Operation Valentine’ and ‘The Great Indian Family’. Two films on the very same day! Both dramatically different genres. ‘Operation Valentine’ is an action – drama, it’s an air force action which is very different from ‘The Great Indian Family’ which is a family entertainer, a very light hearted, sweet story. Two roles, two shades, two announcements – only Gratitude. In both the films people will get to see me in completely different roles. I have absolutely enjoyed shooting for both the films and I’m very excited for their release.”
Vicky Kaushal is set to star in Meghna Gulzar’s biopic about Sam Maneckshaw, which is set to be released in December. Manushi Chillar, the former Miss World, made her film debut in Akshay Kumar’s Prithviraj last year.
