The tale of Laila Majnu is a story that has been passed down for generations, however, when famous filmmaker Imtiaz Ali comes together with ace producer Ekta Kapoor, the resulting Laila Majnu film is a retelling of the story while retaining the passion of the original.

The trailer of Imtiaz Ali's Laila Majnu was released on Tuesday, exactly one month before the film's release on September 7. Set in Kashmir, and penned down by Imtiaz Ali, the film stars newcomers Avinash Tiwary who plays the role of Kais and Tripti Dimri who plays the role of Laila. Using new faces for the iconic characters, the filmmakers assure a new freshness to the movie amidst the beautiful backdrop of Kashmir.

In the Laila Majnu trailer, it is shown of how Kais and Laila meet, how their relationship develops into love and how they are forced to fight for their love. From an innocent beginning and even more innocent love, soon the love descends into madness as the world attempts to force them apart. With a tagline 'Love is Madness', from the trailer itself a glimpse is shown of a distraught Kais who is separated from Laila but fights to return.
