Kareena, who will be seen sharing the silver screen with Shahid, after 2007's Jab We Met told The New Indian Express, "I play a doctor in the film. It's [the role] very simple and nice, good Samaritan kind of a thing. But the whole atmosphere of the film is so nice and dark that the role is very different."

Kapoor also shared the film's first look on Twitter, with the caption "And it begins".

The movie is based on the issue of substance abuse in Punjab and is being co-produced by Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Motion Pictures.

Udta Punjab is set to hit theatres on 17 June.
