In no less than a week, Farhan Aakhtar’s much awaited Shaadi Ke Side Effects is going to be making a grand release and the actor who looks fabulous as the quirky newly married husband in the movie talks about how Shaadi Ke Side Effects has no similarity to his life and how he loved acting with Vidya Balan, also comparing the movie to his previous movie, Bhaag Milka Bhaag.
Talking about how Shhadi Ke Side Effects os so very different from Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, here’s what Farhan has got to say, “Oh absolutely. And you can see the difference in the way I promote the two films. A certain mood of fun and dance has crept into the promotion of SKSE. Of course, we danced while promoting BMB, but it would been unfair and disrespectful to make light of Milkha Singh-ji’s life and struggle during the marketing of BMB. SKSE is a more fun-oriented film.”
And does he find it embarrassing that the media connects the movie to his real life? ” It isn’t an embarrassment. But it is unnecessary. I am playing a role in SKSE. I am playing a character in the film. There is no similarity with my real life” says Farhan.
He was also extremely happy that the talented Vidya Balan is going to be his co-star in Shaadi Ke Side Effects, and can’t stop talking about it, “To begin with, she’s a tremendous actress. So natural, grounded and so uncomplicated. It was a pleasure to be around her. It was a true joy to work with her. We had optimum time together since most of the screen time is shared between us. I’d say we’ve developed a friendship during the course of the shooting.”
Vidya Balan’s infectious laughter was what he liked most about her, he added, “The first thing I noticed about Vidya was that she laughed a lot. She has an infectious laughter. When she laughs, you feel like laughing along. Then we started hanging out together. We shared quite a few laughs. Within the first two days, we began feeling comfortable with one another.”
