It mirrors stories that are authentic, relatable, and the kind that ignite conversations, but most importantly, it’s entertaining! Coupled with the unwavering backing of Jyoti and Jio Studios, we want to make some magical films that are timeless for all ages. In a time when rom-coms aren't being made as often as we would like them to, we are delighted to bring to you the first look of Nakhrewaalii. The film will redefine rom-coms with its fresh storyline from the Hindi heartland.”

Talking about the poster, Rai further added, “With Nakhrewaalii we are most proud of our discovery of Ansh and Pragati, they are bundled with talent and freshness and I can't wait for the audience to experience this duo’s energy in theatres on Valentine’s Day 2025.”
