“Lights are off but the meter still running, hope you don’t get a shock!” You guessed it right! Shahid Kapoor, Shradhha Kapoor and Yami Gautam starrer Batti Gul, Meter Chalu is going to be all about power cuts and the country’s billing system. The Batti Gul Meter Chalu  trailer is out and has people talking about the issue that is never irrelevant.

This social comedy satire, directed by Shree Narayan Singh whose last successful project was ‘Toilet: ek prem katha’ starring Akshay Kumar, is back with another social topic issue which has been bothering the rural areas of the country.

As the 3-minute trailer begins, it gives out the feeling that it is going to be just another entertainer with colorful dance sequence with Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha having fun. However, it eventually turns serious as their lives get affected due to the huge electricity bills. Shahid plays the character of a pahadi who takes the matter in his hands after the character of Divyendu Sharma dies fighting for the cause. There is a courtroom scene where we get to see Yami Gautam.

The dialogues kind of rings a bell with the people facing these issues, especially in the rural areas.

Here’s the trailer :
