Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon starrer Raabta finally hit screens today. Since it went on floors, this Dinesh Vijan directorial has been the centre of attention in telly town. From the trailer, it was confirmed that the movie traces the story of two lovers across two generations. It talks about the story of Shiv and Saira, who run into each other, who fail to understand why they felt this connected. What they could not decipher was a bond that went back ages. Apart from Sushant and Kriti, the movie also stars Jim Sarbh in the role of an antagonist, something that has piqued interests of many.
Ahead of its release, Raabta was locked in a legal battle with makers of Maghadheera. The makers of this SS Rajamouli blockbuster claimed that Raabta was a copy of their movie. They also stated the movie violated copyright norms, something that makers of Raabta kept denying. Yesterday, an out of court settlement put the matter to rest, allowing Raabta a smooth release.
Owing to the sizzling chemistry between Sushant and Kriti, Raabta has created a lot of buzz. It is left to be seen if the movie lives up to the expectations or not.
