The trailer of Rajat Kapoor’s upcoming film RK/RKAY was unveiled on Thursday. The film is written and directed by Rajat, who is also playing the lead role. It also stars Mallika Sherawat, Kubbra Sait, Ranvir Shorey, Manu Rishi Chadha, Chandrachoor Rai, Abhijeet Deshpande, Abhishek Sharrma, Grace Girdhar, and Vaishali Malhara, in key roles.

The trailer tells the tale of RK (Rajat), an anxious director who has recently finished the shooting of his film. The narrative takes a turn when he gets a call from his editing department, stating that Mahboob, the protagonist of the film, is missing from the footage and the negatives. The story further goes into the behind the scenes world of the cinematic world where RK and his team go around trying to find the protagonist.

The official synopsis of the film, shared along with the trailer on YouTube, read, “Filmmaker RK stars as Mahboob in the latest film he is shooting. He gets an urgent call from his editor who explains that Mahboob is missing from both the rushes and the film negative. RK discovers Mahboob, who has entered the real world while running from a killer in the film, and brings him home. Unaware he is just a film character; Mahboob behaves like a real person. Can RK return Mahboob to his fictional world and complete his film?”

The film is set to release in theatres on July 22. It has been screened at several international festivals, including Shanghai International Film Festival, River to River Festival in Florence, Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival, Austin Film Festival, and Pune International Film Festival.

RK/ RKAY is produced by Priyanshi Films (Priyam Srivastava and Harshita Karkare).
