Plot[edit] Naina (Deepika Padukone) is a bespectacled, repressed medical student. She studies constantly and always tops her classes. An encounter with an old classmate, Aditi (Kalki Koechlin), makes her realise that she wants more from life than high marks. She makes an impulsive decision to follow Aditi on a commercial trek into the Himalayas, up to Manali. On the trek, she renews her friendship with another former classmate, Kabir "Bunny" Thapar (Ranbir Kapoor). Bunny is a handsome charmer whose dream is to travel the world. He does not plan to marry or settle down. In the course of the trek, Bunny and Naina draw closer to each other. Bunny teaches Naina to laugh, to play, and to love. At the end of the trek, she is close to telling Bunny how she feels, but is interrupted by their friend Avi (Aditya Roy Kapur). He has searched Bunny's backpack and found a letter accepting Bunny to graduate school in journalism, at Northwestern University. Bunny explains that the trek is his last fling before he leaves. He will be sad to leave his friends, but happy to start a career that will lead to the travel of which he dreams. Naina realises that love and marriage form no part of Bunny's plans and remains silent about her feelings. Eight years pass. Naina finishes medical school and works in a clinic. Bunny works as a television cameraman for travel shows and roams the world, as he had planned. They meet again in Udaipur, for Aditi's lavish wedding to Taran (Kunaal Roy Kapur), an awkward but adoring engineer. Naina and Bunny are again strongly attracted to each other. Both resist love – Bunny because he does not want to give up a dream job he has been offered (as a travel show host), Naina because she fears that Bunny will break

her heart again. Will they find a way to be together? Spectacular dance numbers punctuate a rollercoaster romance. Only in the last few minutes of the film does love triumph.

Production[edit] The film was produced by Hiroo Yash Johar and Karan Johar under the banner of Dharma Productions. It was co-produced by Apoorva Mehta.

In December 2011, Pritam was chosen for first time to do the music for a Dharma Productions film, steering away from the usual Vishal-Shekhar and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, who had previous scored director Ayan Mukherjee's debut film, Wake Up Sid(2009).[11][12]

In May 2012, the cast filmed in Udaipur, where Kapoor and Padukone also shot a romantic song.[13] The unit then experienced a difficult shoot in Rajasthan due to the overwhelming heat.[14][15] Filming also took place in August 2012 in Rue Mouffetard,[16] a street market in the city. Other scenes were shot inFilmistan, Mumbai. On 26 January, the crew visited Kashmir to shoot a musical sequence and other scenes. They filmed in numerous locations such as Kongdori in Gulmarg, Pahalgam and Srinagar. [17]

Casting[edit] Ranbir Kapoor was the first to sign onto the film, and is under Ayan Mukerji's direction for the second time following Wake Up Sid.[18] Kapoor pierced his ears for his role in the film.[19] There was a lot of speculation as to who would play the female lead, with Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma all being considered for the role.[20]Eventually, Padukone was chosen in September 2011.[11][21] Aditya Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin were later signed on for pivotal roles.[22] Koechlin and Kapur play Aditi and Avi, respectively. Evelyn Sharma had confirmed that she will play a ditzy character.[23]
