The one-minute 39-second teaser begins with Alia watching a movie in a theatre when a voiceover starts to narrate a fable about a frog resting by a river, who happens to befriend a scorpion. Alia Bhatt and Vijay Varma are the metaphorical frog and scorpion, going by the narrative, but their roles are not defined. There are also a few scenes between Alia and Shefali in the film that are intriguing and mysterious. In one scene, Shefali Shah and Alia Bhatt are seen grinning, while Vijay Varma appears confused. Alia and Shefali are seen sitting in a police station, when Alia can be heard saying, "The killing was just in our imagination." The teaser also suggests that there is a murder angel involved in the film. The film's teaser features a super cast and humorous undertones in a very bleak environment.

‘Darlings’ teaser and glimpses of Alia’s performance have left fans excited. "Can’t wait," a social media user commented, while actor Rakul Preet Singh wrote, "Fabbbbb."
