Accompanied with an unusual title of 'Jalebi' the trailer released on Monday showed an unconventional love story as well, starring Varun Mitra and Rhea Chakraborty.

The trailer of Jalebi depicts it to be a typical love story, a vivacious Rhea from a well-to-do family arrives in Delhi as a tourist and falls in love with a not-so-well off Varun who works as a tour guide. The duo fall in love and get married.

While most love stories stop there, Jalebi continues and shows the difficulties they have in adjusting, and eventually Rhea decides to leave the joint family setup so she can pursue her career, and leaves behind Varun against his wishes. Years later, the Rhea and Varun bump into each other on a train, but by now, Varun has remarried.

The film Jalebi has been written by Kausar Munir, directed by debutant Pushpdeep Bhardhwaj and is backed by Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt's production house Vishesh Films. Earlier scheduled to release on August 31, Jalebi will now be releasing on October 12.

Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt in a statement with IANS said, "Jalebi tells you how to live in an age of bewilderment when the old stories have collapsed and no new story has yet emerged to replace them."
