Karan Johar, Sajid Nadiadwala
When modern day films are still based around marriage and the approval of parents surrounding issues like inter-caste marriage, we wonder if we will find the story relevant, if at all. But 2 States, the book, was loved by all. Why wouldn’t the film be just as successful as Chetan Bhagat’s novel?
2 States, directed by Abhishek Varman, stars Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor is the title roles. Alia Bhatt plays the role of Ananya, the South Indian girl, and Arjun Kapoor plays the role of Krish, the Punjabi boy. They meet in college, fall in love, engage in romance, and realize they are serious about each other. Now comes the difficult part – convincing the parents. The initial meeting is not what either of them expected. From then on in, both Krish and Ananya struggle through the entire process of going from proposal to the actual wedding.
