Dulhania Related News Love tends to overlook ideologies relationships don’t and that’s why the idea of people who have polar opposite belief system coming together doesn’t seem plausible But this is exactly what director Shashank Khaitan has attempted to explore with his second film Badrinath ki Dulhania The director says that he has seen many relationship conflicts over opposing beliefs around him and that compelled him to write the film starring Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt in lead roles “The core is man and woman love and respect and the role of that in a relationship I have always seen around me and I have been judgmental about it I have tried to be neutral about it and also tried to have no opinion about it Today especially there is so much talk around man woman the role of women feminist chauvinist and as a story-teller I questioned myself How can I bring this out in the most normal way without judging either side It is easy to point fingers at everybody but it is tough to tell a neutral story and then let people decide what is right and wrong” Shashank said in an interview Watch | 5 Reasons To Watch Alia Bhatt And Varun Dhawan Starrer Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya “I have had the good fortune of having great strong women in my life and sometimes when I see the other side I feel why can’t these women be treated the same way the women are treated in my house You realise circumstances over there are different their upbringing is different and education is different So I have tried to use whatever limited understanding I have of that life of what I have seen around me and then tell this story of two characters — Badri and Vaidehi” added the director-writer Badrinath ki Dulhania is the sequel to highly successful romantic comedy Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania which was also helmed by Shashank Even though the nature of the latest film is different from Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania Shashank maintained the story is treated in the same light-hearted fashion as the first movie was 2 days for #BadrinathKiDulhania pictwittercom/FfdnjjQSzv — Varun Badri Dhawan (@Varun_dvn) March 8 2017 “Badri is the one we love to hate the chauvinist and Vaidehi is also one whom we love to hate who is apparently a feminist and then try to get them on the same level for love How can these two characters ever fall in love How can they ever try to lead a simple life That’s been the journey That’s done in the most commercial way I could By telling the story not with sorrow but with joy” With the success of Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania the thought of turning it into a franchise shouldn’t have been unusual but Shashank revealed that initially there were no plans for building a film series until producer Karan Johar heard the script of Badrinath ki Dulhania “When I wrote this film it wasn’t for the franchise I wrote it as my second independent film After hearing the narration Karan said ‘I really like the name Badrinath Bansal and as this story also deals with love and marriage it would be interesting if we design a franchise around it so that anyone who wants to tell the story with love and shaadi he or she can use it as a part of the Dulhania series’ It was just an idea we thought about it for a week and suddenly we were all excited about it” Shashank said Varun and Alia individually and as an on-screen couple were loved in the first film Shashank who is close friends with both the actors said the three of them were conscious about not collaborating again for the sake of their equation “I didn’t custom-make the script for Varun and Alia but by the time I finished writing it I was sure that they could really pull it off and they would be the best choice After Humpty was over we three chatted After a successful film there is always this discussion where people are excited and think ‘We will work together again’ But we had decided that we would not take emotional decisions If we take decisions for friendship’s sake and if the film flops we will start blaming each other” Also read |Badrinath Ki Dulhania: Alia Bhatt’s Vaidehi represents inequality between men and women says MaheshBhatt The director said that the demarcation
