Karan Johar’s fam-com Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani is now streaming on Prime Video India. In order to announce its long-awaited OTT debut, lead actors Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt shared the screen space and faced the camera yet again. And like the film, they had an interesting ‘switch’ in store. (Also Read: Karan Johar says a scandal in his family inspired Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani: ‘I am so obsessed with infidelity’)
Ranveer and Alia in new promo
In the promo posted by Prime Video India on YouTube and its social media handles, Ranveer and Alia are seen promoting the OTT release of their film in the same old manner, before Ranveer suggests a ‘switch.’
Alia then turns into Rocky and starts talking in his West Delhi lingo. She repeats Rocky’s lines, “How’s you babes?” and “Aap toh mujhe total checkout maar rahe ho”. When Ranveer plays along, Alia adds, “Nahi nahi, maar lo, bahut mehnat se banayi hai.”
As Alia continues talking, Ranveer returns the favour by keeping a hand over Alia’s mouth and screaming Rani’s popular dialogue from the film, “Tu kisi aur ko bolne kyu nahi deta yar? Chup kar!”
Ranveer later signs off with another of Rani’s popular dialogues from the film, “Khela Hobe” (‘Let the game begin’ in Bengali). Alia also signs off with, her Rocky mimicry on point, “Bye babes.”
