Exclusive: Kareena, Arjun Kapoor Promote ‘Ki and Ka’

Director R Balki’s films are keenly awaited for they are not only content-rich but also challenge the usual tropes of storytelling. From ‘Cheeni Kum’ to ‘Paa’ and ‘Shamitabh,’ he has dished out an assorted range of content in varied genres. In the romantic comedy ‘Ki and Ka,’ the director will relook at gender roles and how they tend to get stereotyped by our society. The film, which trails the story of a house-husband and an ambitious working woman, stars a fresh pair, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor.

At the promotions Arjun Kapoor said, the film doesn’t really have a message and is purely meant to entertain but questions why the concept of house-husbands is considered an embarrassing, looked-down upon idea and hopes that it might at least help trigger a conversation if not drastically change things at the ground level.

The trailer looks intriguing and the concept fresh but I hope ‘Ki and Ka’ doesn’t succumb to the very stereotypes it is trying to take on.

Amitabh Bachchan (Balki’s lucky charm who has appeared in every film of his so far) and Jaya Bachchan will also make a guest appearance in ‘Ki and Ka.’ They were last seen together in Karan Johar’s ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham,’ fifteen years ago. Jaya Bhaduri makes a comeback after eight long years. She was last seen in the very forgettable (I know I’m being kind) ‘Drona’ (2008).

Balki’s last film ‘Shamitabh’ received a tepid response from the audience and was a box-office turkey. ‘Ki and Ka’ should hopefully help him turn that around.

  1. Kareena Kapoor is hardy doing any good films these days. All she does is item numbers and small roles. Hopefully, she will have a meaty role to play in Veere Di Wedding.
