The trailer for Anil Sharma’s upcoming Hindi film Genius was released on Tuesday. Starring the director’s son, Utkarsh Sharma, Ishita Chauhan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the trailer opens with the narrator listing the many definitions of the word genius: “Genius is one who shows character. He is one who can handle any ordeal he is put through and emerge triumphant.”

The viewers are soon introduced to the genius in question: Utkarsh Sharma. His character, we are told, is a man who has cracked the solution for the nation’s problems: love.

Bankrolled by Soham Rockstar Entertainment and Anil Sharma Productions, Genius will be released on August 24.

Anil Sharma’s filmography includes Gadar: Ek Prem Katha (2001), The Hero: Love Story of a Spy (2003) and Singh Saab The Great (2013).
