Kartik Aaryan on Luka Chuppi: There's a funny quotient to the film's take on live-in relationships
Kartik says Luka Chuppi is different from all Bollywood films made on live-in relationships like Salaam Namaste, Cocktail, Shuddh Desi Romance primarily because it is 'live-in with family'
Mumbai: Kartik Aaryan says his upcoming film Luka Chuppi has a different, fun take on live-in relationships. The actor believes Indian society has become more realistic and being in live-in is no longer a big deal.
"Indian society today is more realistic... In a way it is good that our thinking is widening. People are open to thinking in a way which was not there earlier. We are in a good democratic situation where we are free to think, free to say and do things, which are not harming anyone else," Kartik told Press Trust of India.
Bollywood has made several movies on the theme of live-in relationship namely Salaam Namaste, Cocktail, Shuddh Desi Romance, Katti Batti among others, Kartik says Luka Chuppi is different from all them primarily because it is "live-in with family".
"This is the first film which is saying that come live-in with family. It is the funny quotient of the film. This has never happened. This is the unique and interesting aspect about the film. Luka Chuppi was one script that I really loved. It is content driven film which has commercial aspect to it. We are happy that the trailer has got good response and there is positivity around the film," he said.
Also starring Kriti Sanon, the film is set to release on 1 March.
Saif Ali Khan on replacing Abhishek Bachchan in Bunty Aur Babli 2: "I was told it is a different movie and it is not the same character (that Bachchan played). Aditya Chopra obviously knows what he is doing, so my character has been tweaked because I was playing it."
John Abraham, once an experimental actor and symbol of unassuming masculinity, reduced to a demolishing machine today
Ironically, John Abraham was a punch-up, anti-establishment emblem sex symbol in his prime. The most unobvious of male leads — handsome, and yet approaching something other than the sum of his handsomeness.
