The Plot of the Movie
After being bitten by a wolf, Bhaskar transforms into a Bhediya (also known as a werewolf) and quickly learns what it means to be one. Beginning with Bhaskar (Varun Dhawan) questioning why he was bitten by a wolf and ending with Bhaskar’s Doctor, Dr. Anita (Kriti Sanon), assuring him that he is the “chosen” one and must fulfill his responsibilities and do good in society.
The character’s newfound powers include hearing far-away voices and preferring foul smells over perfumes. The trailer also shows Varun’s CGI-powered transformation into a werewolf. It ends with a remix of the classic tune “Jungle Jungle Baat Chali Hai”.
