MUMBAI, OCT 30: Arjun Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar are set to captivate audiences with their on-screen chemistry in the upcoming romantic thriller, “The Ladykiller.” Directed by Ajay Bahl, known for his work on “Blurr,” this film marks the first collaboration between Arjun and Bhumi. Movie enthusiasts can mark their calendars for the cinematic release of “The Ladykiller” on November 3.
The trailer provides a glimpse into the story, with Arjun Kapoor portraying an outsider who visits the picturesque region of Uttarakhand. Here, he becomes entranced by an enigmatic woman brought to life by Bhumi Pednekar.

Bhumi Pednekar’s character takes on a more complex shade, and the trailer hints at a palpable undercurrent of tension and mystery.

Arjun Kapoor’s last appearance was in Aasman Bhardwaj’s directorial debut, “Kuttey,” earlier this year, showcasing his versatility and commitment to diverse roles. Bhumi Pednekar, on the other hand, recently graced the screen in Karan Boolani’s sex comedy, “Thank You For Coming,” offering her signature charm and humor. Audiences can look forward to more of their on-screen chemistry, as Bhumi and Arjun reunite for “The Ladykiller.”
Beyond the silver screen, Bhumi Pednekar has taken on the role of Brand Ambassador for the Dimensions section of the ongoing Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival. It will conclude on November 5.
