There were reports that Aditya Roy Kapur and Alia Bhatt have been finalised for Karan Johar’s much-anticipated remake of Hollywood film The Fault In Our Stars. However, Aditya has refuted all the speculations around the movie that have been doing the rounds in the tinsel town.
"No. I haven't been approached for anything of that sort. But sounds good," Aditya Roy Kapur told Filmipop.com at the press conference of his upcoming film OK Jaanu held in New Delhi when we asked him how much truth is there in these reports.
Aditya has been playing the boy-next-door for a couple of films now after his superhit film Aashiqui 2 and has build a lover boy image for himself. But the actor says it is merely a coincidence that he has worked back-to-back in the romantic genre and would like to experiment with other genres too in the future.
"It's actually I can say is that it is a coincidence that I have done back-to-back romantic films and that I have like so far. It's not that it's a conscious decision that I only want to do romantic films. I love all kinds of genre, I like watching them as well. I grew up watching action movies and I would love to do action film actually. It would be great fun. But it just happened that I connected with these scripts. Maybe the action films that I haven't benn offered enough and the ones been offered, didn't really connect with me. So it's a coincidence that this is how it has turned out but definitely I would like to experiment and I am looking for different genres to do now," Aditya said.
Aditya, who has teamed up for the second time with his Aashiqui 2 co-star Shraddha Kapoor in this film which tells a story of a couple in live-in relationships, hopes that the film would be an eye opener not only for the youngsters but also for parents who deal with relationship and their problems.
"Whenever you make a film you hope that something people will take away from it. Hopefully it will be an eye opener both for the parents and the youngsters. To look at both size of the arguments, to both size of the equations. And hopefully it sheds light on both of their situations," Aditya told Filmipop.com when asked if it will impact the minds of today's audiences.
Directed by Shaad Ali, OK Jaanu is the official remake of filmmaker Mani Ratnam's superhit romantic Tamil film O Kadhal Kanmani and is slated to release on January 13. It is also the first film of the year which with no other major release at the box office.
