In a year that hasn’t really seen fresh jodis and pairings, January 2017 should be exciting for the simple reason that Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam are coming together on screen for the very first time in Kaabil directed by Sanjay Gupta . The songs and trailers of Kaabil have got everyone to sit up and rave about the unique content and its treatment.
With palpable energy and sizzling chemistry, the fresh pairing of Hrithik and Yami essaying the roles of a visually impaired couple head over heels in love with each other, certainly has become the talking point. These two have never worked together on screen or even been acquaintances off screen and the fact that it was a first for both has helped in creating a sort of magic that is rarely seen in films. Playing a visually impaired person is not easy, more so to play visually impaired characters who overcome challenges to put their love first makes Kaabil so much more special. Their chemistry is beyond the obvious and Hrithik can’t stop raving about Yami’s performance in the film with both the trailers giving you a slice of what to expect. “My words will not do justice. You have to watch the film to appreciate what Yami has brought to her character. I just thank my stars that she was chosen for this movie. This is the most special love story of my career, so every scene with the couple is my favorite. Working with Yami has been enriching for me. She has a really innocent look in the film, which is exactly what was required for the character. Each one of us will witness Yami in a neverseenbefore avatar,” says Hrithik.
Yami has always been acclaimed for her stints in the film industry, but when she had to act alongside such a superstar, she too was a nervous wreck! “He has been given tags like Greek God, Superstar, God Of Dance, etc but he is unaware of these tags. He is a simple person who wants to give his best and help others also get their best in the most selfless way. I am not that generous. He is very inspiring. We all know Hrithik as a superstar but when you meet him on sets or talk to him, he is simple, has no airs and baggage. When a big star like him as no qualms or air or mask or layer on him, it’s nice.I have never met Hrithik socially so when I first met him on sets I told him,’Hi, I am nervous’ to which he said ‘Hi, I am also very nervous.” says the Kaabil actress.
Rakesh Roshans Kaabil which is directed by Sanjay Gupta, will release on the 25th of January, 2017.
