R Balki’s upcoming film ‘Ki & Ka’ starring the gorgeous begum Kareena Kapoor Khan and the handsome Arjun Kapoor is a rom-com of two individuals who tie the knot. Kareena plays the role of an independent corporate honcho while Arjun is a stay-at-home husband.
The film began its production on 3rd August and since then the cast has been filming for a month all over Mumbai. A source revealed, “Kareena’s look will instantly remind you of Vidya Balan in those cotton sarees in Balki’s Paa. And the wedding set-up can be compared to that seen in Shaad Ali’s Saathiya when Vivek Oberoi and Rani Mukerji eloped to get married.”
The film derives its title from linguistic gender division in the Hindi language found in the words ‘ladki and ladka’ and its derivations – iska iski… uska uski.
Writer-producer-director Balki said, “In Hindi, not just human beings but also nonliving objects have gender. Everybody and everything is categorized. But this film, like the couple’s marriage, underlines the fact that ‘Ki’ & ‘Ka’ as genders don’t matter. The film is all about breaking gender stereotypes.”
