Arjun Kapoor: 'Ki & Ka' not preachy; working with Amitabh Bachchan was 'surreal'
Arjun Kapoor said Ki & Ka may have a message but it not meant to be preachy; adds that it was surreal working with legend like Amitabh Bachchan in the film
New Delhi: Actor Arjun Kapoor, who believes that cinema reflects what happens in the society, says his new movie Ki & Ka is not aimed at delivering a message but he feels it could start a discussion on the concept of house husbands.
"When we started with this film, we did not think of this as a documentary or we want to get a revolution... Cinema is not enough to bring that. Cinema shows what happens in a society. If there are little discussions that start happening on house husbands, then we will believe that something is happening," Arjun told reporters,while promoting the film in the capital on Monday.
The Ishaqzaade actor, who will be seen playing a house husband named Kabir to actress Kareena Kapoor Khan's character in the film, says they will consider it a success of sorts if the movie helps people to talk about lending a helping hand in the house.
"Men who share a helping hand at home feel embarrassed (to talk about it)... At least with this film, a discussion would start. But we have not made it for delivering a message, this is totally an entertainment based film," he added.
The 30-year-old actor says the film, which is directed by R Balki, will "have a positive influence".
"Our film is trying to say that we should not differentiate between gender," he added.
He also added that working with Amitabh Bachchan — who has a special role in the film — was a surreal experience.
On Monday, Arjun tweeted:
