Parineeti Chopra and Aditya Roy Kapur host Daawat-e-Iftaar

Parineeti Chopra and Aditya Roy Kapur kick-started the promotions of their upcoming film Daawat-e-Ishq in a delectable manner. Keeping up with the festive mood of Ramzan, the fresh new pair of Yash Raj Film’s unveiled the trailer of their film by hosting an Iftaar party.

Parineeti, who plays Hyderabadi girl Gulrez, and Aditya, as Lucknow boy Tariq, introduced their characters by serving some sumptuous Mughlai delicacies at the event in Mumbai. Since food seems to play an essential role in the film, it was only apt to serve various delicious dishes at the trailer launch.

Dressed in an off-white sequined gown by Diva’ni, Parineeti played a perfect host as she made paneer tikka on a barbeque while Aditya, who wore a black long kurta, prepared chicken tikka.


The trailer highlights the changing dynamics of love that gets spicy, bitter and sweet. Parineeti cheerfully gave details about the film and her spunky character. Her preparation for the film even involved learning the nuances of Hyderabadi language and, based on the trailer, she seems to have mastered it.

 The film, directed by National award-winning film-maker Habib Faisal (of Ishaqzaade fame), is about a show store sales girl who is disillusioned about love because of her encounters with dowry-seeking men. Aditya portrays a cook – a role he enjoyed playing – who can charm anybody with aroma and flavours.

Aditya was seen as a brooder in his previous films Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Ashiqui 2 but he is hopeful that his upcoming film will unveil his comic streak.

Daawat-e-Ishq is scheduled to release in theatres on September 5.
