When I first heard the title of the romcom, I too felt a little confused as I did not know how the word “lub” fit into the equation. But then Sana and Danish’s insane chemistry burned our TV and phone screen. The trailer yelled and begged to be played over and over like you would a hot filmy Bollywood song. As it turns out the movie is not just a simple romcom, but delivers an important social message as well. Set to release on Eid this year, the film promises to live up to the audience’s expectation
