[tps_footer]Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan gave a twist to the promotions of their film Shaadi Ke Side Effects they went atop a hot air balloon. In the film too, the two are in a hot air balloon when Farhan proposes to Vidya and that was the reason did this jig.
Vidya Balan is known for delivering stellar performances in films such as Paa, Ishqiya, The Dirty Picture and Kahaani. Year 2013 proved to be a dry one for her, with Ghanchakkar as her only release but then things changed when Vidya Balan was recently awarded the Padma Shri.
In Shaadi Ke Side Effects, she will, once again, be seen sporting dresses. Except that, this time, she exudes confidence. The look is for the character of a contemporary, urban and independent married woman, whose life takes a turn when she becomes pregnant.
Vidya Balan stated that her role in Shaadi Ke Side Effects required her to approach it from a fresh perspective. “Trisha is an independent, working woman in a two-income household. She and her husband are enjoying their lives when she gets pregnant and the situation seems to spiral out of control as the couple attempts to hold it all together, including their relationship,” informed a beaming Vidya.
For Shaadi Ke Side Effects, she was not tempted to borrow from her real life and experiences of her married life with husband Siddharth Roy Kapur. Instead, she relied on the basic man-woman instinct.
The film, directed by Saket Chaudhary who made Pyaar Ke Side Effects, uses the man-woman stereotypes and plays them out, although in a subtle manner.
“Saket has allowed Farhan and me to interpret the scenes and play them out as we would like to, letting us find our own ground in the space our characters share,” she says.
Coming to Farhan Akhtar, he too is very upbeat about the film and has tried a new singing style for it. “It’s a new kind of singing style for me, which made it challenging and exciting. I love the fact that it’s not a typical sad song and yet, Pritam has evoked those emotions with his chord progression and Swanand’s lyrics have given it a lot of heart.” informed Farhan.
Farhan has sung two songs in the film, which he recorded over a couple of hours in the presence of both Pritam and Saket. “Both the songs are beautiful and emotional and they convey feelings that the character Sid would never be able to voice otherwise.” informed Farhan.
Shaadi Ke Side Effects is all set to release on February 28, 2014.[/tps_footer]
