This week the sequel of Pyaar Ke Side Effects will hit the theatres. Starring Farhan and Vidya in the lead, Shaadi Ke Side Effects looks impressive but will the film get cash registers ringing?
Directed by Saket Chaudhary, Shaadi Ke Side Effects features two very versatile actors of Bollywood – Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan. Since these two will be seen sharing the screen space for the first time, there is a lot of curiosity about how their chemistry will turn out on the silver screen. Though they make a hatke jodi, both Farhan and Vidya have charmed us with their acting prowess time and again. But will they manage to woo us as a pair in Shaadi Ke Side Effects? Will this romantic comedy create hungama at the box office? Exhibitor-distributor Akshaye Rathi says, “Shaadi Ke Side Effects has a lot of elements that can help it score well at the box office. Besides the novelty in the casting of the lead pair – Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan, the supporting cast – Ram Kapoor, Vir Das, Purab Kohli etc make up a crackling ensemble! The music of the film is very peppy and catchy and will appeal to the youth and hopefully draw them to the cinemas.”
While Farhan and Vidya’s latest film has all the ingredients to rule at the ticket windows, we wonder if the ongoing cricket tournament Asia Cup will play spoilsport for Shaadi ke Side Effects. Well, here’s what Rathi feels, “The only threat to the film is the ongoing Asia cup as cricket has as big following in India as films do. Either ways, when a film is engaging and entertaining, nothing can stop it!”
We totally agree with Akshaye. But as far as numbers game is concerned, only time will tell if Farhan and Vidya will become the elite members of Rs 100 crore club!
