I’ve written a few pieces around a film, Dilwale (the good hearted), and its lead actors Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Kriti Sanon, and Varun Dhawan.
In amongst the conversations and media encounters we had with the cast of the film, one theme emerged that I haven’t looked at yet.
It was how each of the females that took main roles in the film; one, veteran Kajol, the other, newcomer Kriti, was feeling about her acting work.
Kajol is an actor who has worked in Bollywood film for 23 years.
The Dilwale story is about the children of two competing families who meet after a 15-year separation. Shah Rukh Khan plays a charming car modifier. Varun Dhawan is his younger brother who ends up falling for the character played by Kriti Sanon. When SRK meets Kajol’s character, whom he loved and got separated from, his past comes back to disrupt his present.
The film was directed and produced by Rohit Shetty.
Live meets for the media and screenings for fans took place around the world prior to the film’s opening.
