- Lara stars as desperate single mom in need of love on the show
- Prateik Babbar plays his brother in the series
- Trailer chronicles messy, complicated and hilarious family dynamics
“Normal is so 2019”, says one of the characters of the next series Hiccups and hookups and the freshly released trailer for the series then proves it. The 2 minute 30 second video chronicles the messy, complicated and hilarious family dynamics and love lives of the members of the Rao family. So you have Vasu, a single mom played by a gorgeous Lara Dutta, who is dating after 20 years. You have his brother, Akhil played by Prateik Babbar who gives a mischievous charm to his character described as the “CEO of adventures”. .
The trailer describes the group as a “normally weird family” who are “perfectly imperfect.” The trailer shows that the series is a marked departure from the regular families we’re used to seeing onscreen. Members of the Rao family break stereotypes by discussing the intricacies of love, sex, and relationships as if they were discussing the weather. We see a scene where Prateik Babbar’s character helps his sister write her biography on a dating profile. He even jokes that his original bio reads like an FIR. We also have a friend who gives far-from-perfect dating advice, a pair of disgruntled parents, and a host of potential romantic partners for Vasu, Akhil, and Kay.
Sharing the trailer on Instagram, Lara Dutta said, “As promised, here it is. Trailer me filter koi nahi hai, family me kaise hoga? Ladhai me bhi aur razai me bhi, Raos are completely unfiltered (There is no filter on the trailer, so how will the family get one? In fights and under the sheets, Raos are completely unfiltered).

Prateik Babbar also shared the trailer on social media and wrote: “When it comes to insanity, The Rao family me uski na koi seeka hai, na koi rekha hai … na aarti hai … na pooja hai. (When it comes to madness, the Rao family has no limits) Oops..Did I just start telling you about Akhil Rao’s romantic relationships? ”
In addition to Lara Dutta, Prateik Babbar, and Shinnova, the series also stars Meera Chopra, Divya Seth Shah, and Meiyang Chang in the lead roles.
