Though inherently Karan Johar's EK MAIN AUR EKK TU is a romcom, from the treatment perspective it follows the 'conversational route'. Even from genre perspective, it was a conscious call by first time director Shakun Batra to present the movie in a way that hadn't been attempted before in a Bollywood film.

"Yes, this is something new that Shakun is attempting here. He is a big fan of Woody Allen and brings with him a different grammar of filmmaking," says Karan, "As a result of that, you would see a lot more conversations happening here. You would notice that in many a Hollywood romcom, there are these walk-talk sequences where it is just you and the camera in motion. You would see something similar out here in EK MAIN AUR EKK TU."


The filmmaker also believes that such films are far more difficult to do than conventional cinema.

"It is far tougher to find connectivity with an audience since there are no buffers like dramatic pauses, background score, props etc. to enhance a scene. It is just the actors doing their talk and the trick is to hold a viewer's attention right through their conversation," he says.


Still, since Kareena is an experienced actor while Imran comes with some typical urban sensibilities, one can well expect that for both the actors, understanding the nuances of the narrative and executing that on screen would be akin to a walk in the park. "Well, it was certainly not a walk in the park for them though I can tell you that there was a lot of walking in the park required," quips Karan

Now that's something we would know once we watch the film on 10th February.
