WE ARE FAMILY isn't a film about two timing or polygamy. However, Arjun Rampal, the lead protagonist in the film, can't help but share a joke around how the film would teach many a men how to deal with two women in one's life.
"There are many reasons why one must come and watch this film. One such reason is that my character in the film will show audience how to deal with two women at the same time," laughs Arjun who is sharing screen space with Kajol and Kareena Kapoor in the film. While Kajol plays his ex-wife and mother of his three children, Kareena Kapoor is the new entrant. Situations force the six of them to stay together under the same roof and what follows next is the series of bitter-sweet moments.
"In a way we have broken the formula with the film," Arjun gets serious here, "The concept of step mom or stepfather comes with quite some negativity attached to it. However, in WE ARE FAMILY we are trying to look at the positive side of things. It is all about pushing the envelope."
Getting philosophical, he adds, "The film tells you that after a certain point in time, you should not worry about the past. What matters is the present and one should live in the moment. Somehow in real life, we tend to forget that and keep delving into the past. Everybody says that we don't want things to be that way but then somehow we again start moving in the same direction. With WE ARE FAMILY, we expect that many amongst the audience would start looking at things positively and live life even more happily."
