Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor plays the leading role in the much-awaited Dharma Production 2 States.
The 28-year-old actor plays the role of Krish Malhotra in the movie. Krish is a tall, erudite, Punjabi boy next door, aware of his reality, duty and ambition yet, lost in a distant world – as he hopes to become a writer someday. A writer, compassionate about the world around him… a world where he wants to make a difference with his words… without being preachy.
Raised by an overbearing Punjabi mother (Amrita Singh) and an alcoholic father(Ronit Roy), the only reason Krish is home, is for his mother. They find the solace of a family with each other. He would not do anything against her wishes or do something that would hurt her.
However, much to the chagrin of his mother, Krish falls in love with Ananya (Alia Bhatt), a Tamilian girl, whose nonchalance over his caste or community and encouragement to pursue his dream to become a writer, wins him over.
Krish knows his mother will not be happy with his choice of a “Madrasan” and that Ananya’s parents will not be forthcoming either. However insurmountable the task of overcoming the obstacles of the borders, states, communities and cultures… he will fight for his love… but will he succeed?
Experience Krish’s love story in UK cinemas on 18th April.
2 States is directed by Abhishek Varman and produced by Dharma Productions.
