Speculation surrounding the title of R Balki’s next starring Arjun Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan can stop after the name was officially confirmed.
The name of the movie has been revealed as ‘Ki and Ka’. Khan will play the role of Ki and Arjun as Ka. Apparently, the name is derived from common Hindi words which define gender eg, uski, uska, iski and iska. A source told Mumbai Mirror, “In Hindi not just human beings but also nonliving objects have gender. Everybody and everything is categorised. But this film, like the couple’s marriage, underlines the fact fact that Ki and Ka as genders don’t matter,” he explains. “Bebo and Arjun play a Delhibased couple. The film is all about breaking gender stereotypes.”
On his official Twitter handle, ‘@arjunk26’, Kapoor wrote, “An amazingly ambitious LadKI meets a uniquely fascinating ladKA!!! Balki Kareena and I bring u the Love Story of Ki and Ka Summer 2016!!!”
‘Ki and Ka’ goes on the floors on 3rd August in Mumbai. R. Balki has given us beloved films like, ‘Paa’ (2009) and ‘Cheeni Kum’ (2007) with as unique titles and characters. ‘Ki and Ka’ is slated for a summer 2016 release.
