The conversation that created “Befikre”

Uday Chopra & Aditya Chopra (in his cryosleep) were drinking one night. Uday was sad, He really felt Pyaar Impossible was a game changer. He hadn’t been more hopeful of a movie since Neal n Nikki.

“It was a movie ahead of its time!” – said Uday checking the release dates of My Sassy Girl, Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha/French Kiss & Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaenge.

DDLJ triggered Aditya Chopra awake from his cryosleep. In what unique way could SRK fall in love now? Uday felt what he’s felt for almost his whole life; ignored. Aditya replies, ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ was ahead of its time, it was also a realisation of how Katrina Kaif will continue to look hot even after she’s old.

Neal n Nikki wasn’t aspirational enough, people want to be Raj & Simran, Raj & Megha, Suri & Tani, not Neal n Nikki.

“I always felt casting Tanisha was never going to work out.”

In the era of arranged marriages I introduced the anarchy of love. And what followed was a storm. Then in the era of love marriages I showed how it’s not impossible to find love in an arranged marriage. Now, in the era of responsible, mature relationships, I shall show the impulsive nature of the youth!

He walks out of Uday’s room while finishing that monologue, silently Uday wonders, where has his Blu-Ray of ‘Friends with Benefits’ gone?
