"There was a time when people used to get uncomfortable during intimate scenes. Slowly they got used to it. And I believe people will start getting used to this as well. Audience loved the film and this is a welcoming note," said Fawad Khan. He added, "There should be nothing really shocking about homosexuality"
"Two years down the line, Alia has an amazing repertoire of films. I however apologise for Shaandaar. Besides that, she has had some amazing films like 2 States, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya and Kapoor And Sons. Alia is Dharma Production's proud girl and always the flagship girl of the company"
"It is a good looking pair and they should definitely do a film. I think Sid and Deepika will look amazing together. And every day there is a new rumour, Deepika with Sid and Deepika with Fawad (in a film), so I think this has to happen very soon," said Karan Johar, whose film Kapoor and Sons has struck gold at the box office
Kapoor And Sons, which released on March 18, narrates the journey of the members of Kapoor family. The film also stars Alia Bhatt, Fawad Khan and Sidharth Malhotra. The film, produced by filmmaker Karan Johar, also stars Rajat Kapoor and Ratna Pathak Shah
Neetu Kapoor shared a precious throwback picture from the Kapoor family album on Instagram which shows Rishi Kapoor posing with his siblings Randhir and Rajeev Kapoor, Reema Jain and Ritu Nanda. Rishi Kapoor was recently seen in Kapoor And Sons, directed by Shakun Batra
"A glorious rendition of Happy Birthday for @aliaabhatt by her dazzling grandparents! Naturally there was not a dry eye in the house. Not that there ever is a shortage of waterworks at a Bhatt family do but this one was truly special," Pooja Bhatt said as she shared the video on Instagram
"Rishi Kapoor is a living legend. Having worked with him is actually an opportunity to learn something," said Fawad Khan. He also added that Kapoor And Sons is "a celebration of family. As an actor I think it sort of takes into account and uses my abilities as an actor"
Shakun Batra, whose previous films include Ek Main aur Ekk Tu, has a naturalist's feel for character and situations that's unusual in mainstream Bollywood. Even though Kapoor & Sons goes from lightly comic to more darkly dramatic to pretty overtly melodramatic, it never loses its lived-in quality
In a three-hour film reel, photographs find a cameo role but their significance often outstrips the length of appearance. One such example Bollywood's latest offering, Kapoor And Sons. As Kapoor and sons and grandsons and Alia prep for a family picture, we take a look at the clicks which became game changers in film plots
"The USP is that it is a relatable family drama, it is a sweet and a heartfelt story, I feel that such kind of films are hardly made because it is very simple and made for the love of filmmaking. There was no need to plug in any unimportant element and no need to sprinkle any masala," said Fawad Khan
Directed by Shakun Batra and produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions, Kapoor And Sons features Rishi Kapoor, Fawad Khan, Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt in key roles. Sidharth and Fawad reportedly play estranged brothers who are forced to live under the same roof by cranky grandfather, played by Rishi Kapoor
Sidharth Malhotra said with a guffaw, "Since Alia and I had worked with him earlier too, it was ghar ki murgi daal barabar. But Fawad was Rishi sir's favourite. He is a true Punjabi, very hospitable, greets you with food and lassi. So he and Fawad bonded every evening over lassi after 8 pm"
