Rajkummar Rao and frequent contributor Hansal Mehta are back with their latest film, Chhalaang. The trailer for the film came out on Saturday. The actor plays a PT teacher who happily recedes into the background, while his fellow teachers give academics priority over sports. But will he be able to do his best when faced with a more qualified teacher played by Mohd Zeeshan Ayyub, as they both compete against each other for the same job?
The trailer features Rajkumar Montu, a low-skilled teacher at a government-funded school in Haryana, and Nushrat Barucha plays his computer teacher colleague Neelu. Things change for Montu when he is faced with a more qualified teacher who has everything he needs to take on his job. The story enters a small city school with prominent performances by Ila Arun as school principal and Satish Kaushik and Sudhir Mishra in supporting roles.

The film is an inspiring social comedy and Rajkumar’s fifth collaboration with director Hansal Mehta. The duo of actor and director has made four films together: CityLights, Shahid, Aligarh and Omerta. Chhalaang will release digitally on Amazon Prime Video on November 13th.
In the film’s new poster, Rajkumar is spotted crashing to the ground as he struggles to reach the finale, but is detained by Nushrat and other school children. Their other stars Ayyub, Satish Kaushik, Ila Arun and Yatin Sarna also take part in it.
Chhalaang was previously scheduled for release in March, but was delayed due to coronavirus blockade. It is presented by Bhushan Kumar and produced by Ajay Devgn, Luv Ranjan and Ankur Garg.

Earlier, Rajkummar had revealed that he needed to properly correct Haryanwi’s emphasis and learn about the fitness procedures taught to students. He had also talked about how he himself worked as a teacher at Gurugram and told Mumbai Mirror in an interview: “While I was in college, I taught dance and drama at DAV Public School in Gurgaon for a few hours in the morning before lectures. I was a friend of my students rather than a teacher because there was not much age difference. In fact, I was the youngest teacher in the school and I was enthusiastic about improving my acting skills as well as the extra money. I even directed the play Sikander during this three-month stay. It was a historical story and showed the battle between Alexander and Por. “
