Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017)
(Released: Aug 18, 2017)
The film is all about a Bareilly based bubbly girl Bitti Mishra (Kriti Sanon) and her life. Despite being a girl, her parents raise her up as a son. That explains the reason as to why her parents are not surprised to know that her daughter smokes and even drinks. Even though Bitti Mishra meets many suitors for her marriage, she lands up getting rejected by everyone. That's why her marriage becomes the prime concern of her parents (Seema Pahwa and Pankaj Tripathi). One day, a chance reading about the central character of a book titled 'Bareilly Ki Barfi' not only changes her plans of running away from her parental home, but also, makes her feel special about the book's author, who, she thinks is the only person who has understood her completely.
When the book's printer Chirag Dubey (Ayushmann Khurrana) gets to know about Bitti Mishra's love for the book's author, he fabricates a story involving Pritam Vidrohi (Rajkummar Rao), whose name and photograph features as the book's author. What is the mystery behind the book's author, does Kriti Sanon get to know the real author of the book in the end and what connection does Ayushmann Khurrana has with the book, is what forms the film.
