WEB DESK: Bollywood budding stars Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra, lead pair of upcoming film “Kapoor & Sons”, have clarified that it is not a tale of love but story of a family, Indian Express reported.
They were asked why they always have a third party whenever they romance on-screen to which Sidharth replied, “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. We all are playing very small part in this ensemble. It is the story of a family. I am confident that people will relate to it.”
Alia added, “It is not a love triangle. It is about family, relationships, it is about a grandfather (Rishi Kapoor), who wants to bring his family together. There is a love angle but the plot of the film is about a family.”
Even the film’s director Shakun Bantra reiterated that the movie is beyond the tag of a love story with every character having its own tale and perspective.
The film also stars our very own heartthrob Fawad Khan in a lead role and all the three lead actors are nervous about the Friday release( March 18), but are not aiming to get into Rs 100 crore club.
“This is a very simple film. It does not have any action or major cast and big budget that we would pray for it to get into Rs 100 crore club. But yes we do want it to be successful. We want people to enjoy the film and relate with the characters and their stories,” Alia said.
Produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions “Kapoor & Sons” also stars Rishi Kapoor, Ratna Pathak Shah and Rajat Kapoor.
