Yaami Gautam’s mom was impressed by Ali Zafar on the sets of Total Siyapaa!

Though Ali Zafar had to go through a lot of trouble to please Yaami Gautam’s on-screen mother (played by Kirron Kher) in the movie Total Siyapaa, the actress revealed that her real mother is mighty impressed with the singer-actor. Yaami tells us, “My mom keeps asking me, ‘Have you learnt something from Ali? He is such an intelligent, multi-talented guy!’ I say, ‘What do I learn in a month? Singing? Painting? Acting? What else do I need to learn?’

So, did Ali give her any classes at all on the sets? “She didn’t need any, to be honest,” says a blushing Ali, and a laughing Yaami adds, “I was already a fabulous painter, singer, and actor!

Yaami says, “It delivers a message without being preachy.” Adds Ali, “It’s special to me because of the perception one has to face if they’re from Pakistan, albeit in a very humourous way.

The stars hope the film encourages more cross-border marriages. But what if it ends up being chaotic? “No situation can be more chaotic than Total Siyapaa. Men about to meet prospective in-laws would gain confidence after watching the film,” affirms Yaami.

Ali does know some real-life Indo-Pak couples. “Two of my Indian friends are married to Pakistani girls, and they are facing visa problems because rules allow the girl to go back only twice a year.

Produced by Friday Filmworks, Reliance Entertainment and ZEEL, Total Siyapaa releases today.
