Bollywood’s rising stars Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor together with award-winning author Chetan Bhagat wowed the media and their fans on Friday, 4th April when they flew into London for a set of exclusive events. They visited the capital city to promote their forthcoming film 2 States, which releases on 18th April 2014 through UTV Motion Pictures.

The celebrity trio attended a specially convened press junket at London’s five-star The Courthouse Hotel, where they met media and conducted a series of in-depth interviews. After a full day of press interactions, Alia Bhatt, Arjun Kapoor and Chetan Bhagat headed to the popular Cineworld multiplex in Feltham, south-west London, for a unique meet and greet with several thrilled fans. It was an extra special treat for a few fans in particular, as these lucky competition winners got up close and personal with their idols, when they met Alia and Arjun in person!

2 States is a stirring romantic comedy film about a young couple from different states in India (Punjab and Tamil Nadu), who meet at the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (India) and fall in love. However, their relationship is riddled with obstacles as they try to convince their traditional families to accept their relationship. The film stars Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor in lead roles. It is directed by Abhishek Varman and produced by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and Dharma Productions.

The film brings together some of Indian cinema’s most accomplished and talented actors from North and South. The lead stars are Arjun Kapoor, who plays the intelligent, dreamy, duty-bound Krish Malhotra, and Alia Bhatt, who plays the feisty and beautiful Ananya Swaminathan. Both are supported onscreen by a stellar cast, including, Amrita Singh (Aaina, Betaab), who plays the prejudiced, battleaxe Punjabi mother Kavita Malhotra and Ronit Roy (Midnight’s Children), who turns in an impressive performance as the alcoholic, down-trodden father Vikram Malhotra. There are also worthy performances by Revathy (Molly Aunty Rocks) and ShivKumar Subramaniam as the devoted but long-suffering Tamil-Brahmin parents.

2 States is the compelling, humourous and emotive story of young, contemporary love across the chasm of the community divide in India. Will Krish and Ananya overcome the odds and win their families’ approval for their relationship? Will their respective families attend their wedding? Watch 2 States to find out.

2 States releases worldwide through UTV Motion Pictures on 18th April 2014

Interview: Saif Ali Khan talks about ‘Race 2’

Saif Ali Khan  - London - Race 2 (1)Saif Ali Khan spoke to BollyNewsUK in London last week about his upcoming action packed thriller Race 2 – a film by Abbas-Mustan.

Khan will be seen reprising the role of Ranveer Singh in the sequel to UK hit Race (2008). The plot in the sequel moves at a reckless speed as friends turn foes at the drop of a hat, from one locale to another with unexpected twists and turns taking forward the legacy of Race.

In this candid quick chat, the 42-year-old actor talks about the year ahead, the ladies in Race 2 and much more…

How was your honeymoon with Kareena Kapoor Khan? You were in Gstaad (Switzerland) and then came to London.
It was very good. We were in Switzerland in Gstaad. It is a lovely place, like a fairy tale village. Kareena is very fond of it and I love it too. The air there is so clean and nice. We were waking up, exercising and then we went into an outdoor pool surrounded by the Alps, which looks absolutely stunning. Afterwards, we would go for a walk in town, take lots of DVD’s and watch some nice TV shows in the afternoon and get ready for the evening.  They have really quaint and beautiful restaurants with some amazing and healthy food. We did this for about two weeks, which was great. Then, we came to London where the drinking and eating has gotten a little bit out of hands (laughs). It’s time to get back on the wagon. We have fallen back a bit in London.


What are you expecting from the year ahead?

I have a good film (Race 2) releasing in the beginning of the year. I am starting work and shooting for Bullet Raja, which I am feeling very happy about. I am feeling quite confident professionally. I am working in films that I enjoy and I am in an environment that I enjoy. I love my job and love the fact that you have to behave, be spartan in your diet and look after yourself. I am also very much looking forward to doing up our new apartment in Mumbai. It will be a real labour of love for me to set up that house. I would also like to renovate our family home in Pataudi this year.

 

Saif Ali Khan  - London - Race 2 (5)Tell me about working with the actresses in Race 2.

Ameesha..
Ameesha and I did not really have much to do. She has played a cute kind of role in the film. It is a bit of a difficult role because you have to be ditzy and charming but at the same time quite sexy. She has to wear high heels, short skirts like a classic blonde except that she is not blonde (laughs). She is brilliant though and it was great fun.

Jacqueline Fernandez..
Jacqueline, I think, is playing a star making role. I hope I am right in thinking so. Like what happened to Katrina Kaif after Race. I don’t know if it will happen to her. Kaif’s song (Zara Zara Touch Me) was something else and she knew it. I remember she bought this dress and said I just want to kill it. Jacqueline has also been given the same platform. She has killed it as well. Let’s see what happens.

Deepika Padukone..
It is not the first time that I am working with Deepika Padukone. It was fun. She looked a little shell-shocked sometimes because Abbas-Mustan have a unique way of communicating and speak very slowly and softly. They don’t say too much. I have seen her with Homi and Imtiaz, who are more like friends and will talk a lot and hold your hand and teach you how it should be done. Whereas, Abbas-Mustan will say ‘Thoda Aur Sexy Karo’ (Do it sexier [while directing a scene]) (laughs). I would laugh and would say go for it. But again, she approached it right and added some complexity and depth to her character, which is why I say that she will go very far. It is almost a negative role but she has given it sympathy. I was happy to have shared this with her as well.

 

Saif Ali Khan  - London - Race 2 (4)

There were reports that you ignored Deepika after she had left Race 2 due to date issues.
No! What rubbish! It is none of my business. You know, there are some things that irritate me that won’t irritate other people, but this is not one of them. I would never get irritated if a co-star had their own reasons for doing whatever want to do. It is nothing personal. It has to do with the director and the production. I am happy she did it. If she had not done it, someone else would have done Race 2 but maybe not someone as good as her.

A lot of people did not really like your dance moves in ‘Lat Lag Gayee’. Were you a bit apprehensive while doing them?
I was very much so. I did not really think that it was part of the character. I think they should just cut me out of it because Jacqueline looks great. But YouTube and these guys, they bitch out almost anything. I think most of them have no lives apart from sitting there and commenting. It’s a bit too much sometimes. But it is always great to get feedback and I have a healthy relationship with the internet. I don’t take it too seriously but at the same time I do think maybe I should sharpen up my steps.

Produced by Tips Films, an Abbas-Mustan directorial, Race 2, starring Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor and Ameesha Patel releases in UK cinemas on 25th January 2013.

‘Student Of The Year’ at Cineworld, Feltham (London)

Indian film director and producer Karan Johar  introduced the leading actors of Student Of The Year to British fans at Cineworld, Feltham on Tuesday, 2nd October 2012.

The My Name Is Khan director attended a well-organised meet and greet with debutants Sidharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt at the cinema in west-London.

Johar and the cast were greeted by hundreds of fans, who were eager to catch a glimpse of them. Earlier on, we caught up with the cast and director who asked for some tips and about what they should do during their promotional visit to Feltham.

We told them to take as many photographs and give as many autographs  as they can and drive the crowd crazy and they exactly just did that.

Varun Dhawan, Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt were mobbed by screaming fans who wanted photographs with them and the actors happily posed away. 

Addressing the crowd at the cinema, director Karan Johar said: “Thank you all for coming out to see us tonight and for all your love and I only have more love to give back to you. Make sure you come and give our  movie love on 19th  of October. If you are young, you will love it and if you are not young, it will make you feel young.” 

Varun, who has spent most of his childhood in London and has studied at Nottingham University, said that it feels special to be in London and thanked fans for their love and support. 

Not many people know but Alia Bhatt is a British citizen and said that London is special to her just like her first feature film as a leading actress, Student Of The Year

Sidharth, Varun and Alia also performed on The Disco Song from the film with fans singing along and cheering the newcomers. 

A lucky fan girl from London also had the chance to dance with Sidharth and Varun on Ishq Wala Love while Alia grooved to Radha with a fan from Bradford. 

Johar also gave out exclusive merchandise to fans and participated along with the cast of the film in a Q&A session. 

Eros International will release Dharma Productions’ Student Of The Year in UK cinemas on 19th October 2012.
