Talking to Aditya Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin is like going on a fun, mad holiday. The two second leads of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani can talk non-stop about practically anything you ask them and the only time they take a breather is when co-star Ranbir Kapoor interjects (which is often)! The bond, the warmth and the chemistry between the stars of the film was evident during the promotional round in Dubai recently and it was indeed refreshing to see genuine friendship between co-stars (unlike other instances where two actors or actresses often go their separate ways after the press meet is over!). Here are excerpts of our interaction with two of the coolest young stars in Bollywood today – Aditya Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin.
Aditya, a supporting character in films so far, has now become Aditya, the hottie, after Ashiqui 2's success. "Hey I find these titles quite embarrassing, how can I take them seriously?" he asks. Kalki adds to his embarrassment, "He is a caveman during our shoot in Manali where we were going on a trek, the only thing on Aditya's mind was food, food and more food! You are actually calling Adi – the guy who has chicken bones in his room – a heart throb? Ha ha ha!" Aditya could only blush and look away! Before Kalki spilled more secrets, we asked him what working with Ranbir was like. "It was amazing," he begins predictably. "The best part was it hardly felt like we were shooting; it was like we were on a holiday and Ayan was shooting us." Ranbir interrupted us and said, "Aditya, the question was about working with me!" And the young actor quickly adds in the same tone, "Oh yes, yes, it was fantastic. He's great, fabulous, he's someone I look up to need I say anything else?" That shut Ranbir up!
