The film features newcomer Riya Vij as the main protagonist Gippi and also stars Taaha Shah. The story of the film revolves around an overweight 13-year-old girl, who hates the idea of dieting, but wants to look hot. She is neither good in studies nor in sports, and like every teenager, she is trying to cope with the change, curiosity and even embarrassment that come with her age.
Through the trailer of the film one can relive the precious moments of friendship, the crazy crushes, the best friends and the slim-trim good looking arch rivals, the awkwardness of growing up, and the effort to adjust to one’s changing body, and the joy of discovering the new you.
At the very first sight, the audiences will like Gippi, and the makers apparently held extensive auditions to find the Delhi-based 13-year-old Riya Vij for the title role in the film. Gippi has been shot in Mumbai and Shimla, and is directed by Sonam Nair.
Here’s the first trailer of the film, and do watch Parineeti Chopra, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Imran Khan, Arjun Kapoor and Siddharth Malhotra laying the pitch for an introduction to Gippi in the promotional videos of the film:
