The story of the movie goes like this; Karan is told to marry a tree before his wife as he was born under unlucky stars. He agrees but later is shocked to find that he is now married to Shashi, a spirit who used to live in the tree. Now only Karan can help them both.
The trailer of the movie showered numerous complements for the film. A special screening for Anushka Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh of the film Phillauri was held in Mumbai and many stars came to attend it. The list included Shah Rukh Khan, Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra, Sonakshi Sinha, Shabana Azmi, Javed Akhtar, Dia Mirza, Rekha and Kriti Sanon among others.
All stars who arrived, seemed happy and gleeful. Alia and Sidharth came in the same car and Rekha wore a beautiful Kanjivaram saree.
SRK has specially been supportive of Anushka regarding the film. He has helped promote the movie through his twitter account. Ranveer Singh too tweeted for the movie.
