The Raghava Lawrence starrer sees Nikki Galrani playing the female lead, while Lawrence essays the role of a police officer.

Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva is produced by BR Choudhary of Super Good Films. The music has been composed by Amresh Ganesh; Praveen K L has handled the editing.
Fun fact: ‘Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva’ is a ‘punch-line’ from Raghava Lawrence’s previous film, Muni 3: Ganga.
Badrinath Ki Dulhania:
Badrinath Ki Dulhania, starring Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt, is all set to hit the screens tomorrow. It is the second film from the Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania franchise – directed by Shashank Khaitan.
In an interview with IANS, Alia Bhatt said that her character is a feminist and is very driven in life. “Kavya [in the first film] is younger, more naive, and simple. She has one aim in life, to get married in a lehenga. Whereas Vaidehi [in Badrinath Ki Dulhania] is strong, mature, ambitious, and more of a feminist.”
On the other hand, Varun Dhawan, in an interview with the PTI, has said that “the things that Badri does makes him look like a chauvinist.”
Badrinath Ki Dulhania is produced by Karan Johar under his banner Dharma Productions. The movie also stars Guahar Khan, Mohit Marwah and Aakansha Singh.
