'Stepmoms not always wicked'

Stereotypical

'Stepmoms not always wicked'

 “It's the children who suffer. You will see what happens to children and that’s the message we are going to give through the film. The film is about the whole dynamics of relationship,” said Arjun, who himself comes from a broken family. “The film breaks the mould of a stereotype that stepmoms are like wicked witch, the way it has been portrayed on the silver screen so far. The film is not about that; it's about the crisis and how love prevails over everything and finally new relationships could also be made and I think that's the beauty of the film. I come from a broken home; so I work much harder to make my marriage work. I have been, by the grace of god, very happy. I have a very nice family,” said Arjun.

Scheduled for a September 2 release, the film has been produced by Karan Johar, who went through the right channel to get the rights to remake it in Hindi. “The stories are needed to be told. It’s better to take it and be noble enough to say this is what we are adapting from, rather calling it an original idea. But working on an original subject is a lot more exciting. I think adaptation is tougher because once you do it, immediately comparisons are drawn,” said Arjun.
