Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor Interview
Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha KapoorYou were strangers before shooting for a love story as intense as Aashiqui 2. Was it difficult to break the ice?
Aditya Roy Kapoor : We had a workshop before we started shooting, so that broke the ice. People tell me we have good chemistry, so I think it was a good thing that we got to know each other beforehand.
Shraddha Kapoor: Yes, we rehearsed a lot before shooting and were in sync with each other's style of working. We were comfortable with each other.
And you bonded over...?
Shraddha: I love to sing,to the sets and we would sing together.
Aditya: I liked the fact that Shraddha is very committed, focussed and wasn't worried only about herself.
Choose three adjectives that are most descriptive of your co-star.
Shraddha: Handsome, creative, spontaneous.
Aditya: Honest, punctual, large-hearted.
And what would you say is your co-star's most annoying habit?
Shraddha: We both irritate each other. I have seen so many of his moods. Sometimes, I think he can be quite lazy.
Aditya: Shraddha takes her time to be annoying. She is forgetful and tends to procrastinate, which she is very conscious about.
What is the weirdest thing you two have done?
Shraddha: We are both pranksters and there wasn't a single moment of boredom on the sets. Once, while we were rehearsing for one of the shots, he tried to trip me over, hoping I would fall flat on my face. But that didn't happen--I almost fell but saved myself at the last moment. He got punched very hard in the bargain.
Aditya: We are slapping buddies. I have given her many fatkas but she has never shouted at me.
Shraddha: We are actually like Timon and Pumbaa (the meerkat and warthog from The Lion King). He calls me Pumba. I am so much smaller than him -- he is 6'2" and I am barely 5'6". When he slaps me on my back, I stagger four-five steps ahead. I am ahead of him all the time.
Aditya: She eats ridiculously slowly. Though it is good for health, Shraddha is still chewing away long after everyone at the table has finished.
