New Delhi, Jan 11 (IANS) Actors Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor say they are open to the idea of live-in relationships, but with the right person at the right time.

Aditya and Shraddha were here on Wednesday to promote their forthcoming film “OK Jaanu” directed by Shaad Ali. The film is about a couple living in together.

Asked about her opinion on the concept, Shraddha said: “I am open minded (to the idea of a live-in) but I think it will be a little difficult because I stay with my parents… But it also depends on if I get that partner with whom I feel like living-in and if there’s a future… then I am open to the idea.”

Aditya, who will be seen sharing screen space with Shraddha for the second time after “Aashiqui 2”, added: “I am definitely open about it too… I have never been in an live-in relationship before. But it should be with the right person and at the right time. Also, I wouldn’t want to do something my parents aren’t happy with.”

The film, which is a Hindi remake of Mani Ratnam’s “O Kadhal Kanmani”, is slated to release on Friday.

Pros-cons of arrange marriage and live-in relationship: See what Aditya, Shraddha feel

Arrange marriage vs Love marriage- an age old debate that has no end to it!

Now, a third vertical to this can be a live-in relationship, which sometimes ends up into a love marriage.

But what does such couple feel about the concept of arrange marriage?

Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor, who are portraying a couple in a live-in relationship, in their upcoming flick Ok Jaanu, weigh in to this discussion.

During an interview with ANI, the Ok Jaanu stars shared their thoughts on what can be the possible pros and cons in an arrange marriage.

Sharddha said, “For pro in an arrange marriage is, sometimes the parents judgment on things can be really helpful; their advise on someone might work out well. For me, the con is that you dont know each other from before.”

Aditya, on the other hand, feels discovering new things about your partner, can be both good and bad.

“Pro might be, you can discover new things about each other with time, which might be adventurous. And con might be, you start discovering things in a person, which you dont like; then every day is a bad adventure,” he said.

On a related note, both the stars said that in real life, they are cool with live-in relationship, as far as love and happiness is associated to it.

Shaad Ali directed Ok Jaanu, is an official remake of Mani Ratnams Tamil-flick O Kadhal Kanmani and is set to hit the theatres this Friday, 13 January.

Though we are now in 2017, live-in relationship is still a not-so-acceptable concept in India, especially among the parents generation.

During the interview with ANI, when Aditya Roy Kapur was quizzed on the same, he said, the parents generation will take time to be cool with the concept.

“I think as live-in is not in our culture, hence that can be a reason as to why people dont accept this concept. The change of thought will take its own time and thats natural. Our parents generation never went into that stuff, so for them, to get used to this idea, will naturally take time,” he said.

Further explaining his thoughts, the 31-year-old actor said, things will be easier once the parent realise that their children are old enough to take decisions, “But once they realise that their son or daughter is old enough to take decisions and trust them that they can take care of themselves and their partner, then they will understand that what people do in a live-in relationship is nothing more or less that what they do in a relationship, without living in together.”

Adding, “So I think, time is changing and people are open to it.”

On the same note, Aditya and Shraddha Kapoor will soon be seen playing a couple in a live-in relationship, in their upcoming flick Ok Jaanu.

Directed by Shaad Ali, this film is an official remake of Mani Ratnams Tamil-flick O Kadhal Kanmani and is set to hit the theatres this Friday, 13 January.
