The film Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, directed by Abhishek Kapoor and starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Vaani Kapoor, has finally been released on OTT. The film has finally been released online after a huge box office hit in theatres. The movie is now available to watch on Netflix. Netflix India’s official Instagram page broke the news on January 7.
The film Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui stars Ayushmann Khurrana in the role of Manvinder Munjal, a cross-functional athlete who manages a gym. Until Vaani Kapoor (Maanvi) appears in the film, his company receives very little footfall. They both fall in love, and the plot twists when Munjal discovers the truth about Maanvi.
Despite receiving positive reviews from critics, the film failed to do well at the box office, grossing just Rs 36.44 crore in two weeks.

Vaani, who played a trans woman for the first time in a press release, spoke about working on the film and how she chose to take the part by believing the director’s vision.
“I was taken away by the screenplay when Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui came to me since it delicately spoke about the need for diversity while telling the tale in the most compelling way imaginable.” Hats off to Abhishek Kapoor for making a film that is accessible to everyone and appeals to people from all walks of life in India.
We must first entice people to view such films so that they may reflect on what we are trying to say, which, I believe, will help to change society as a whole.”
Ayushmann Khurrana, a well-known actor, has never shied away from playing characters and tales that deal with issues that are usually deemed taboo. From playing a sperm donor in Vicky Donor to portraying a homosexual guy in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan to presenting healthy physical ailments like erectile dysfunction in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, the actor has defied stereotypes to represent individuals on the big screen.
