Fardeen, Genelia talk marriage
Love is in the air. Fardeen Khan and Genelia D'souza
Again! If some recent films gave the audience a ringside view of contemporary relationships, Abbas Mustan and Studio 18’s Life Partner, which releases on August 14, is all set to take love to the next level... with an insight into romance and marriage, and the change in a relationship after the knot has been tied, taking two couples as case studies.
One that goes in for the tried and tested arranged marriage, the other that follows the dictates of the heart and rushes headlong into a love marriage
Fardeen Khan, who returns to the screen looking like a fresh and young Feroze Khan of the 1970s, says, “Director and writer Rumi Jaffery has pulled it off really well. The film is a strong comment on marriage, but the beauty is that it doesn’t preach.’’
Whereas Genelia D’Souza, whose second film this is, says with characteristic effervescence, “When I heard the script, I was on the floor laughing. The film is a comedy, but it is not slapstick...’’
She accepted the role because her character, the spoilt rich girl with a heart of gold, is an antithesis to what she is like in real life.
“Though I’m an actress, I’m not entirely pampered, so I enjoyed playing my character,’’ admits Genelia. While Fardeen adds, “Everyone who is married, or wishes to get married, will identify with the film. It has got something for everyone in a meaningful relationship.’’
He’s had a love marriage himself, in real life, so he knows what he’s talking about. But Genelia doesn’t necessarily advocate love marriages. She says, “I’m game for an arranged marriage also.
While love marriages have their share of magic, arranged marriages allow for a degree of mystery and romance as well.’’ Fardeen, who is blessed to have found his soulmate in wife Natasha, cautions, “Marriage is a constant work in progress.’’
Both actors agree that whether on screen or in real life, every couple has its own issues. Interestingly, the other couple in the film, that has an arranged marriage, is played by Tusshar Kapoor and Prachi Desai. “Life Partner is a film that tells people how to chip off the rough edges from their marriages... and learn to settle down,” says Fardeen.
And Genelia adds sweetly, “Happily ever after...”
