Viewers were subjected to a guessing game all through the last week with a name ‘Gippi’. The main character named Gippi of Karan Johar’s next production of the same name, directed by Sonam Nair, was introduced by Dharma Productions in-house actors like Sidharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Parineeti Chopra, Arjun Kapoor & Imran Khan through promotional vidoes. The name of the character and movie caught the fancy of the audience for the same. Except the name nothing much was revealed about the movie until now.
Finally with the release of the trailer yesterday, it’s been revealed that it’s the name of the teenage character in the movie. As you can see she’s not the prettiest girl in the class and she’s bullied several times by her class mates for her weight. It looks like Karan Johar has made a movie based on his school days as the director had revealed once that he was bullied in school for the same. The debutante director Sonam Nair is the captain of the ship. Vishal Shekhar has composed the music. The movie stars Riya Vij, Divya Dutta, Doorva Tripathi, Arbaz Kadwani, Jayati Modi & Taaha Shah.
The story is told from the perspective of a teenage girl and it covers the simple joys, anxieties, insecurities, friendships and crushes that are part of the lives of every single girl of that age.
