Wedding Season is the latest summer romance film centered around that popular time of year where everyone seems to be getting married and follows an unlikely duo as they try to navigate this awkward period together.
With their friends and peers all tying the knot, Wedding Season tells the story of Asha and Ravi who are facing immense pressure from their families to find a spouse so they can have their own big weddings of their own, and neither are too happy about the constant barrage of questions.
As a result of this, the two pretend to be a couple to try and appease their parents but encounter some complications along the way when their feelings about each other start to change.
The film was directed by Failure to Launch's Tom Dey from a screenplay by Shiwani Srivastava, and stars Life of Pi's Suraj Sharma.
