Disney+Hotstar has released the trailer for Vidyut Jammwal’s Khuda Hafiz, which is releasing on August 14.
The cinematography of the movie is done by Jitan Harmeet Singh and the movie is written by Zaheer Abass Qureshi. Apart from the lead star Vidyut Jammwat, Khuda Hafiz cast includes Shivaleeka Oberoi, Annu Kapoor, Shiv Pandit, and Aahana Kumara in lead roles.
“Khuda Hafiz is a romantic movie. It’s a true story of a man who is madly in love with his wife, and gets married in 2009 during the recession. They go abroad and get a job. (The story is about) how this girl gets picked up and how the guy gets her back. It’s a hardcore, true romantic movie with a little action,” Vidyut earlier told IANS.
When Sameer and Nargis decide to go work in a foreign land, things go wrong and Sameer, a common man, has to give it his all to make things better. The story is inspired by true events and the film is produced by Panorama Studios. The trailer is now streaming exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar.

The film was involved in a controversy after Disney+Hotstar invited none of its cast members in its grand announcement event, seemingly favouring star power. Vidyut had expressed his dismay in a tweet, and wrote, “A BIG announcement for sure!! 7 films scheduled for release but only 5 are deemed worthy of representation. 2 films, receive no invitation or intimation. It’s a long road ahead. THE CYCLE CONTINUES,” he wrote. The other film that was left out of the announcement was Kunal Kemmu’s Lootcase.
Aahana Kumra, who plays a supporting role in Khuda Hafiz, had told Mid-Day, “I found out about the press conference after seeing Vidyut’s tweet. I have not bothered asking why I wasn’t informed. I know it won’t lead to an answer. The OTT platforms I have worked with have been warm, professional and democratic in how they present you. They pride themselves in equal representation. This is the first time I have seen such behaviour.”
Khuda Hafiz is directed by Faruk Kabir and also stars Annu Kapoor. Vidyut will also be seen in the Zee5 film Yaara on Friday.
