FRESH IN: ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects’ With Vidya Balan


MUMBAI: Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan are all set to debut as a married couple, in Balaji Motion Pictures and Pritish Nandy Communications’ ‘Shaadi Ke Side/Effects’.

For the very first time, audiences will get to see the fresh new pairing of the quirky star Farhan and the super-successful Vidya ‘Midas Touch’ Balan in ‘Shaadi Ke Side/ Effects’. The film is the sequel to PNC’s 2006 fun film ‘Pyaar Ke Side/ Effects’, which had seen yet another unconventional jodi in the form of the intellectual star Rahul Bose and the masala queen Mallika Sherawat.

Reportedly, ‘Shaadi Ke Side/Effects’ will see a bigger star cast, including TV’s blue-eyed boy Ram Kapoor, stand-up comedian Vir Das, singers Ila Arun and Hariharan. The plot of the film revolves around ‘Sid’ and ‘Trisha’, who’ve now entered this sequel as husband and wife. Sid has finally beat his fear of marriage and Trisha has thereby gotten her vows said for the third time round.

Says Pritish Nandy, of the fresh new pairing of Farhan-Vidya: “We have the hottest stars of 2013 with us, Farhan after ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ and the star of the upcoming ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and Vidya after ‘The Dirty Picture’ and ‘Kahaani’ together for the first time on screen. They make the perfect Sid and Trisha, each fighting for space in their marriage.”

TV Czarina Ekta Kapoor, adds, “Vidya Balan is an actress par excellence and my personal favorite.”

‘Shaadi Ke Side/ Effects’ reportedly goes on floors this week, and will release in December 2013.
