New Delhi: The Punjabi film 'Jatt & Juliet', the romantic story of a warring couple, has fared better than most Hindi films in the international markets, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
The story of Jatt, a mischievous guy and Juliet, a typical Punjabi girl, unfolds in Canada. Sparks fly when their paths cross due to their different outlook on life. Their differences are slowly ironed out and the hatred turns to friendship only when they part.
The film stars Diljit Dosanjh and Neeru Bajwa and is directed by Anurag Singh of 'Yaar Anmulle' fame. The screen play is by Dheeraj Rattan (Jihne Mera Dil Luteya, Dharti, Mel Karade Rabba, Taur Mittran Di) and has been produced by Darshan Grewal (Hero Hitler In Love and Dharti) and Gunbir Singh Sidhu.
"Punjabi film 'Jatt & Juliet' is bigger and better than most Hindi films in international markets," Adarsh tweeted.
