"I don't want to do things that actors used to do earlier. Initially, heroes played heroes only. I want to carve my own niche. I don't want to commit to one genre or style. It is not a norm (to stick to one genre) so it seems risky. But the endeavour is to do something new and not be the same in every film," said Sidharth Malhotra
With the release of Kapoor And Sons, it seems that the love lives of millennials follow pretty much the same triangulated patterns. Dharma Productions, the baap of complicated love polygons brings to you Kapoor And Sons,where the battle for ladki beautiful is within the family
"This film made me realise that true love is just not between a man or woman, but family as well. Earlier I did not give enough value to the support I get from my family," said Alia. Alia, who will soon be seen in Kapoor And Sons, is the daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and actress Soni Razdan
"I think it has a different perspective on family. Whoever you are, you will identify and see yourself in the film," said Karan Johar. The movie catches the on-and-off bond between characters played by Sidharth Malhotra and Fawad Khan, who are on screen siblings
When asked why Sidharth and Alia always have a third party whenever they romance on screen, Sidharth said, "It is just a coincidence that there is always another actor, whenever me and Alia are paired on screen. But to clear the air surrounding the film, it is not a love triangle"
Aashiqui, which released in 1990, starred Rahul Roy and Anu Aggarwal and was directed by Alia's father Mahesh Bhatt. Aashiqui 2, which released in 2013, featured Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor, and was directed by Mohit Suri. Meanwhile, Alia is gearing up for the release of Kapoor And Sons
Fawad Khan, who has featured in television serials like Zindagi Gulzar Hai and Humsafar, will soon be seen in Kapoor And Sons. Directed by Shakun Batra, Kapoor And Sons which also stars Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra will release on March 18
Alia told NDTV, "I don't take my decisions based on what people will think or may think or what they expect of me. In that case, I won't be able to take risks since I will be too conscious and if I won't have fun will die"
"My character has been able to succeed with his career a bit whereas his brother is still stuck in a struggling zone. In real life, I have three siblings in my family. My elder and younger sisters were probably allowed more freedom than I was. Because of the freedom, came more opportunities," said Fawad Khan
"When I was approached by the filmmaker, I completely lost my mind because I got such a good opportunity. But unfortunately I could not commit as I had already given my commitment to Kapoor And Sons," said Fawad Khan in an interview
"Dance is not really my forte, I have experienced difficulties in trying to learn how to dance, because Sidharth and Alia have already come in rhythm; after two or three days of rehearsals, they are all set to go," Fawad Khan said
"We take our family for granted and don't give them too much of time. I have not met my family for the longest time because of my hectic schedule. So, I feel this should not happen. This film is basically about a Kapoor family and I am not a part of that family in this film," said Alia Bhatt
