Sara Ali Khan and Vicky Kaushal are on a whirlwind tour of the country, promoting their upcoming film Zara Hatke Zara Bachke. As part of the promotions, the stars also sat down for a conversation with one another for IMDb. As part of their free-wheeling conversation, Vicky Kaushal asks Sara Ali Khan – with whom he is collaborating for the first time in this film – her first impression of him. “That you are very very tall. That was my first impression of you I remember,” Sara Ali Khan said promptly. However, Vicky Kaushal was far from impressed. He said, “You have to answer something different. I get to hear the same thing from the vegetable vendor — that I am so tall.”
Following this, Sara Ali Khan had a very interesting observation. She said, “But when we did the look test it looked like we are relatives. Remember I always used to say we look like relatives; we look like relatives.” To this, Vicky Kaushal said that Sara would even say this before romantic scenes.
After further back and forth on the subject, Vicky Kaushal said, “Let’s stick to being tall.” “He’s my tall relative. And he is also relatively tall. Get it?” joked Sara Ali Khan.
Meanwhile, in the same interaction, Vicky Kaushal confessed that one of his favourite films, which he can watch “all the time”, is Lagaan. Sara Ali Khan, on the other hand, said that Dum Laga Ke Haisha was the film that inspired her the most.
Vicky Kaushal also cited Atul Kulkarni’s character from Natarang, as an example of the type of character he would like to portray on-screen and also named Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham… as a Kaushal family favourite.
The duo’s upcoming film is set in Indore and follows a married couple, Kapil (Vicky Kaushal) and Soumya (Sara Ali Khan). They two are madly in love and desperately want a divorce. Confused much? Well, the trailer of the film promises a fun ride with a fair share of family drama and romance with a comedy of errors thrown in the mix.
