It’s been the case for years that it’s the upperclass types who get the film launches.
And it’s also been the case for years that the upperclasses tend to look down on mainstream Hindi films.
To show a man and a woman who really are just friends.
And it’s good for their careers too, at least Aditya Roy Kapur’s.
They are sort of under the glass ceiling, close enough to the real power to be able to see it, but cut off.
Which is what they kind of acknowledge when Karan asks what it’s like having an “equation” with both Ranbir and Katrina, and Parineeti and Aditya both say that everyone is fine on the surface, but it’s like there are “vibes” no one talks about going on underneath.
In the Ranveer-Ranbir episode, Karan got the elephant out of the room right away by asking about Deepika. No, they aren’t even that scandalous or interesting. I guess this is what makes Karan’s show so different from other celebrity talk shows?
Because I do really believe they are friends after seeing this.
Oh, and do you think it is because they didn’t grow up in the industry that they are terrible with Hindi film history?
Karan accused both of them of this, but through out the show it was clear that Parineeti was a little better, while Aditya was just hopeless.
But some kind of girlfriend thing where he is unavailable but also not giving us a perfect marriage fantasy, that’s THE WORST.
So until Aditya is officially married and posting sappy selfies of himself and his wife and their perfect home, going with “chillin”, as in “you can pretend that if I met you in real life we might have a magical one night stand”, that is optimal career-wise.
