New Delhi: Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra, lead pair of ‘Kapoor & Sons’, have clarified that it is not a tale of love but story of a family.
Asked why they 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. 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.”
His co-star 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.”
Film’s director Shakun Batra, who made his directorial debut with 2012 film ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’, said the movie is beyond the tag of a love story with every character having its own tale and perspective.
The film also stars Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan and all the three actors are nervous about the Friday release, 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.
