Vidyut Jammwal and Shivaleeka Oberoi-starrer Khuda Haafiz will premiere on Disney+Hotstar on August 14. The trailer of the film was released today (July 25). The lead actor took to social media to announce the news. Directed by Faruk Kabir, the film revolves around a man on a mission to find his missing wife.
Khuda Haafiz is set against the backdrop of the 2008 recession and narrates the story of Sameer Choudhary, played by Vidyut Jammwal, who is on a search of his missing wife, Nargis (Shivaleeka Oberoi), in a foreign land. As there is a shortage of work, Nargis moves to Noman (a fictitious country in the Gulf) as she gets a good-paying job there. But soon, Sameer receives a call from his wife insinuating she is in danger. The protagonist then sets on a task to find his wife, which leads him to the murky world of international human trafficking.
Sharing the trailer, Vidyut Jammwal wrote, “Presenting to you the true story of a common man who takes an extraordinary journey to save his love (sic).”
Recently in a virtual press conference, Disney+Hotstar announced seven films to be released on the platform. The films include Laxmmi Bomb, Bhuj: The Pride of India, The Big Bull, Sadak 2, Khuda Haafiz, Lootcase and Sushant Singh Rajout’s Dil Bechara. However, it attracted a controversy when Vidyut Jammwal complained that he and his film was snubbed by the makers. The press conference was attended by stars like Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan and Alia Bhatt, who represented their respective film, while Varun Dhawan hosted it. Vidyut Jammwal and Kunal Kemmu were not invited to attend the online press meet to represent their respective films, Khuda Haafiz and Lootcase.
