Produced by Karan Johar and Fox Star Studios, ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ is billed as a romantic comedy drama.
The sequel to the vastly popular ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’, this new film is a hardcore “desi romance” which takes fans on a roller coaster ride of emotions from fun, love and laughter to heartbreak, angst and tears.
Starring India’s next-gen superstars Varun Dhawan as Badrinath Bansal and Alia Bhatt as Vaidehi Trivedi, who both belong to small towns; but their mindset about gender roles in society and about life in general are diametrically opposite.
There’s a clash of ideologies, a struggle to overcome circumstances and pressures of their small-town families.
Audiences will watch them lock horns and melt hearts in a film that is more than just your average ‘boy meets girl’ love story.
Actress Alia Bhatt got one advice from her "Dear Zindagi" co-star Shah Rukh Khan, and that is 'its good to be bad.
The actress talked about her personal equation with Shah Rukh during an episode of TV show ‘Yaar Mera Superstar’. Alia also confessed that SRK is her childhood crush.
In the trailer of ‘Dear Zindagi’, Shah Rukh is seen giving some deep, meaningful suggestions to Alia's character.
Alia’s admitted that Shah Rukh recently gave some real life advice to her. She said: "It's not like I have gone to him to take any advice in particular, but recently he told me that it's good to be bad.
“He said that I’m too good for the world sometimes, as I generally wear my heart on my sleeve and approach things with positive enthusiasm."
The film ‘Dear Zindagi’ is a slice-of-life film with Alia playing the protagonist - an aspiring filmmaker who is on the lookout for a lot of unanswered questions. Shah Rukh is essaying the role of a psychiatrist Jahangir Khan in the Gauri Shinde directorial.
It also features Ali Zafar, Aditya Roy Kapur, Kunal Kapoor and Angad Bedi.
If I say that I will ruin it for the film. You will have to watch it.
Q: How was your on-screen chemistry with Fawad?
Fawad is fantastic. He is a very talented actor. I was very surprised and happy with the spontaneity he and I managed to bring on screen in the scenes we have together. I know he is a big star and there have been several women who have come to me and said, ‘Oh, you are working with Fawad! It is so exciting!’ He is very down-to-earth and a very sweet guy.
Q: Tell us about your role in Kapoor & Sons?
I play the role of the audience in the film because it is about the relationships that they share with one another. But I also have my own problems and relationship traumas as a character from what I have been through. Tia is the lightness in the film, she is happy and always playing pranks on people, but there is also a lot of depth in her character coming from what she has been through and lived and learned from. It’s an ensemble cast so there is no main hero or heroine. Each and every character has a different story to tell.
Q: So, is the film a love triangle?
‘Kapoor & Sons’ isn’t a love triangle. It is more about family dynamics and different relationships and how they can take over. There is romance there, of course, but that isn’t the main storyline. My favourite love triangles are ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai’ and ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’.
Alia Bhatt admits she was "not happy" with how her last release "Shaandaar" fared at the box office (it was clearly a bit of a flop), but she says she doesn't regret doing the movie.
Asked about the failure of “Shaandaar”, Alia said here: “I was not happy, obviously. It was a clear no-show. If it’s not a good film, then it will not do well, I will not say we made a good film and it didn’t do well.”
“Yes, there were problems… but, I will not blame anyone either. I will take full responsibility for it. When I signed the film, I did it happily and I still have no regrets. Now it has happened, so it’s okay. Now I will work harder and move on.”
The film was directed by Vikas Bahl of “Queen” fame.
Now Alia will next be seen in Dharma Productions’s ‘Kapoor & Sons’ with Sidharth Malhotra.
“Working with Dharma Productions is like coming home. It’s like a family to me.
“Karan (Johar) is a very liberal father-figure… he is like my dad and he gives me a lot of space. When I worked with Sidharth earlier, I was a newcomer, so I was very nervous. This time we had a great time as I had a certain bond with him.”
Directed by Shakun Batra, ‘Kapoor & Sons’ also features Rishi Kapoor, Ratna Pathak Shah and Rajat Kapoor. The film is slated for release on 18th March.
So, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt are going to be sharing a screen together – for the first time EVER!
With Ranbir having a disastrous year in 2015 ,he has been advised by his closest friends and directors to choose sensible films. He is unlikely to do more films with Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, with whom he has done the majority of his films with.
Though Ranbir’s latest release ‘Tamasha’ has done well enough for its director Imtiaz Ali, who has apparently offered Ranbir for a third film (and sorry to bust your bubble - Deepika is not part of it).
However, a source close to Ranbir has stated that Alia Bhatt may be featuring in his next film, which is an impressive choice of pairing, don’t you think? Even so, Ranbir’s BFF Ayan Mukerji has also chosen Ranbir and Alia in a super-hero film.
It will be interesting to see these two together if it all goes to plan.
