I have worked with him in my first film and there are so many learning and memories I carry of the film.I immediately reached out to him."

We both had to do hours of makeup and I had some high action sequences which were very demanding.But, it just felt good to work with him again." “Raabta”… rooh jude toh judi reh jaaye (“An Unexplained Connection” …When two souls unite, they become one).Raabta is a modern-day story of two seemingly ordinary people who have the most extraordinary experience when they realize that they are connected through a past experience of unrequited love, passion, adventure and treachery.
Raabta, which is extensively shot in Budapest, Mauritius and Punjab, is a love story based on dreams, destiny and love.In the hip and thriving European city of Budapest, two strangers, Shiv (Sushant Singh Rajput) and Saira (Kriti Sanon) are mysteriously drawn to each other and have a whirlwind of a hysterical romance.
As they party through this bustling city, Saira questions the relationship more so because of how fast they have fallen so madly and deeply in love.Shiv is a laugh-a-minute and effortlessly brings so much sunshine into her life that Saira feels this is too good to be true.Until, of course, the third angle to their relationship emerges in the form of Zakir Merchant (Jim Sarbh), a billionaire playboy who goes all out to woo the beautiful yet strikingly down-to-earth Saira.
She’s floored by the attention and by Zak’s suaveness.But a prophecy from the past looms large over the destinies of Shiv, Zak and Saira in this life too.Will they manage to break this cursed cycle? Will destiny repeat itself? Will the lovers reunite or will they meet the same fate? Who does Saira belong to in this life? Zak or Shiv? Set against the vibrant and luscious backdrop of Europe and Mauritius, Raabta is a hysterical roller-coaster of contemporary relationships, love, intrigue, entertainment and life (twice over!).
