Whereas the teaser gave us an ebullient Whitney Houston rehearsing with backup dancers and showcasing her trademark vocals, the trailer gets into the meat of the documentary with emotional recollections of the late singer. According to its synopsis, the film promises to be "an intimate, unflinching portrait of Houston and her family that probes beyond familiar tabloid headlines and sheds new light on the spellbinding trajectory of Houston's life".

Elsewhere, Houston criticizes fellow pop star Paula Abdul.

Talking about the film Harshvardhan said, "I think it's a dream come true for an actor to play a superhero on the big screen". Not just that, it has a greater audience potential and is a safe distance away from holdover Hindi and English releases.

Houston's brother Gary Garland says in the film that "There were always a lot of secrets". Another adds: "His heart was, he wanted to be on the stage".

"There were times when I'd look up to God and I'd go, 'Why is this happening to me?" she recalls in vintage footage. "And eventually, she (Houston) stepped down to lift him up".

We see famous faces like Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, Clive Davis, and L.A.

I said, 'Stop". "And then Nicole sent me this article about Whitney's rendition of 'The Star-Spangled Banner" and how that changed how the song has been understood and sung ever since", he said.
