Arjun Kapoor plays Kabir, an IIT graduate who wants to be a house husband as his wife climbs the corporate ladder. Kapoor said that the film was not made to give any message about gender roles. "But since people have appreciated this, we want it to reach to the audience. I don’t think one film is enough to bring any evolution." Sachin Gokhale/Firstpost


While Arjun Kapoor plays the house husband, Kareena Kapoor Khan essays the role of an ambitious, career woman named Kia. She said recently that gender bias is not an issue that is addressed openly. The challenge for her lay in making her character real and believable. Sachin Gokhale/Firstpost


In order to prepare for his role as a house husband who cooks, Arjun Kapoor took lessons from chef Rakhee Vaswani. The lessons paid off not only onscreen but off screen too. On Women's Day, Arjun cooked a meal for Kareena at a promotional event, impressing both the actress and their film's director, R Balki. Sachin Gokhale/Firstpost


Kareena Kapoor revealed recently that she was so impressed with the first half of Ki & Ka's script when R Balki narrated it to her that she agreed to do it even without hearing the second half. Sachin Gokhale/Firstpost
