  • Ileana D'Cruz plays the role of a girl with dark complexion facing rejections from suitors.

Ileana D’Cruz has been missing from the silver screen for a long time now. Tera Kya Hoga Lovely will be her comeback movie which also stars Randeep Hooda and Karan Kundrra. Based on India’s obsession with fair skin, the movie's trailer unveiled today shows the Barfi actress as a girl with a dark complexion. Directed by Balwinder Singh Janjua, Tera Kya Hoga Lovely appears to be a movie that may trigger some good debate on the web and social media platforms.

It seems to target two vices in the marriage market-the Indian dowry system and the obsession for fair skin. The major story revolves around Ileana D’Cruz who is young and struggling to stand on her own amid societal pressures to find a suitable groom which is so common in contemporary India. The journey of the protagonist played by Ileana unveils the severe realities of the Indian society where a girl of marriage age is judged solely based on her complexion.

The trailer shows that the director has effectively captured the protagonist's journey as the audience experiences her feelings after multiple rejections from potential suitors after they come to know about her real complexion as against the fair one that has been portrayed on the websites of matrimonial platforms.

While the protagonist is going through all these processes, she comes across Randeep Hooda who is a police officer. He is in search of thieves who stole the money of dowry. Slowly the dynamics between Hooda and D’Cruz start changing and the trailer hints at a possible connection blossoming between the two.

For Ileana D’Cruz Tera Kya Hoga Lovely is a significant movie as it is her first film after embracing motherhood. The film releases on International Women’s Day, March 8.
