The trailer of Sonam Kapoor-starrer romantic drama, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is here to narrate a not-so-simple love story. The Bollywood film makes a brave attempt to bring forth a same-sex love story to the screens.
Although it isn’t the first film to deal with the LGBTQ theme, it certainly has a different approach.
The trailer of the film begins as a usual Bollywood romantic cinema. However, it takes an unexpected turn in the end. The clip starts off with Sweety’s (Sonam Kapoor) family on a lookout for a groom for her, unaware of the fact that she is actually in love with a girl. Expectedly, the family couldn’t accept it and turns against her. The multi-starrer film definitely looks promising and has already garnered huge appreciation on social media.
In a few hours of the release of the first trailer, it has taken over the internet and the social media users cannot hold it back from applauding the team for the new age cinema.
whoever thought of the title deserves a raise #EkLadkiKoDekhaTohAisaLaga

A *mainstream* lesbian romance is just what we needed to remind ourselves that for every #Thackeray, there will be an #EkLadkiKoDekhaTohAisaLaga , to help balance the rapidly skewing scales. @sonamakapoor‘s film choices of late have been quite something. ❤️

#EkLadkiKoDekhaTohAisaLaga is exactly what you would expect from @sonamakapoor after #VeereyDiWedding. She is definitely changing the paradigm of how leading ladies have always been portrayed in mainstream Hindi cinema. Watch out for d trailer of this not-so-normal family drama!

There’s something about the idea of #EkLadkiKoDekhaTohAisaLaga which I just can’t shake. A family drama centered on a lesbian love story, the very idea of it is so damn exciting and filled with hope but there’s also an underlying fear. Man they better bloody land this.
