Bollywood’s Biggest Makeovers and Transformations


The hugely anticipated trailer for Kapoor and Sons-Since 1921 was released recently promising a rollercoaster ride of emotions, tension and some wholesome lovable moments in the film.

In the trailer, Rahul Kapoor (Fawad Khan) and Arjun Kapoor (Sidharth Malhotra) return to their childhood home after five years. The two brothers are seen to share a volatile relationship, bonding one moment and feuding the next.
