Janam janam tak saath nibhaunga: Vicky Kaushal
DECCAN CHRONICLE | Lipika Varma
Marriage was the natural topic of interest for the media while meeting Vicky Kaushal for the first time since his marriage to fellow actor Katrina Kaif. More so because the occasion was the screening of the trailer of Zara Hatke Zara Bachke, a film themed on marriage. The actor, who pairs up for the first time with Sara Ali Khan in the film directed by Laxman Utekar of Luka Chuppi and Mimi fame, fielded the questions with humour and candour. Excerpts from the interaction:
Taking the cue from the cross-culture marriage depicted in the trailer, Vicky was questioned on his real-life cross-culture union
"Ours was totally cross culture," he acknowledged. "We could make out who belonged to the boy’s family and who came from the girl’s family. The boy’s family was from Pind Punjab, while the other was from UK. While the Punjabis queued up in front of the food tables, their family queued up at the bar!
Asked if he was miserly, in the context of reports that during parties, he himself tends the bar setup!
Yeh itna mehenga tha ki meine usko kaha, main hi tray lekar khada ho jaunga. I was like, if we keep a bar arrangement so expensive I will not get a kick. I don’t like to spend unnecessarily.
On the eve of his wedding... One day prior to the marriage I was drunk, and the next day I was hungover.
On comments that he was finding it difficult to get along with his onscreen partners in most of his films.
God tries to maintain a balance in everyone’s life. My real life is so sorted, I have got Katrina; so in reel life there is gadbad.
How was he able to separate the real and the reel in this film on marriage?
I shot for this film ten days before marriage. I took leave for my marriage.
And after four days I went to Indore to Complete the rest of the shoot. There was the usual confusion during the marriage at our desi weddings. We party but we also face a lot of tension when things don’t go as expected. So I carried this feeling to the sets of the film.
Also, my real family is spread out in different parts of India, so when we meet for an occasion, sometimes ten of us are crowded into a room. We look forward to spending such time together. In the film too, a big family comes together for the wedding, and it was all very relatable.
Since Zara Hatke Zara Bachke also talks about divorce, the media representatives concluded the interaction by asking if Vicky would consider divorcing Katrina for another partner.
"I am just marred! Let me enjoy my marriage. Main janam janam ka saath nibhaunga with Katrina.
Zara Hatke, Zara Bachke features Vicky as Kapil and Sara as Somya, a married couple in a joint family. Will their marriage survive, or will it fizzle out? That’s the million dollar question. This is Laxman Utekar’s third outing with Dinesh Vijan. The film from the Maddock Films stable will be released on June 2.
