Finally, it’s a wrap for the cast and crew of Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. On Monday, director-producer Karan Johar took to social media to share a video where he announced the wrap of his upcoming directorial Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
He called it a “talkie wrap”, and the team cut the cake, and KJo thanked his team and hugged each other. Present on the set were Ranveer Singh, Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi. Alia Bhatt, who’s busy with the promotions of her debut productions Darlings, joined in through a video call. “Yeh hain Rocky aur Rani. Virtual aur real ki prem kahani,” KJo said.
Posting an adorable video from the set, he wrote, “It’s a talkie wrap on a piece of my heart…a kahani that became a journey which I will hold close to me forever! I sat in the director chair after many years and it felt like coming home. We had legends and superstars on the set and in front of the camera – they were magic! Behind the camera, it was nothing short of magic either with my A-team, my pillars of strength. Thank you to everyone who worked tirelessly and passionately towards this kahani…I am forever grateful. #RockyAurRaniKiPremKahani coming soon in cinemas in 2023…”

Ranveer shared that he always wished to act in a Dharma movie. “Little did I know my first Dharma film would be directed by the man, the boss himself,” Ranveer said.
“We are blessed that he (Dharmendra) is in our movie,” Karan said in a video that the makers posted on social media.
KJo returns to direction after Ae Dil Hai Mushkil in 2016. In Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, he brings together Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh after the 2019 film Gully Boy. The film also stars Jaya Bachchan, and TV actors Arjun Bijlani and Shraddha Arya in cameos. The film will release in 2023.
