Gender swapping in 'Ki & Ka' wins over Bollywood

Ki & Ka

R. Balki's idea of role reversal to question age-old stereotypical notions about gender, with marriage as the canvas through 'Ki & Ka', has bowled over stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Karan Johar and Varun Dhawan.

The celebrities have appreciated the film and the filmmaker for taking on an issue like gender differences in a fun and zingy manner. 'Ki & Ka' aims to dispel gender disparity with its story wherein Arjun Kapoor essays a house husband and Kareena Kapoor Khan is seen as an ambitious, career-oriented woman. The film, slated to release on April 1, has a cameo by Amitabh and his wife Jaya. Here's what the stars tweeted to appreciate the film's concept:
Amitabh Bachchan: 'Ki & Ka' watched... Bold of Balki to say what is generally believed to have been said behind closed doors! Karan Johar: Super chemistry between Arjun Kapoor and Kareena in 'Ki & Ka'. New story, new take and zingy narrative make it a must watch! Varun Dhawan: Just watched 'Ki & Ka'. Great concept and well executed by Balki. Arjun Kapoor and Kareena are the perfect kiandka. Ayushmann Khurrana: 'Ki & Ka' is fab!
