R. Balki's upcoming film KI AND KA has certainly grabbed eyeballs for its gender spin concept. Of course Kareena Kapoor Khan and Arjun Kapoor's respective characters that of the ambitious woman and house husband are being talked about. But besides that, what has caught our attention is veteran actor Paresh Rawal's better half Swaroop Sampat's portrayal of a chic and progressive mother of Kareena Kapoor.
||SCREEN GRAB FROM KI AND KA TRAILER
The trailer showcases Swaroop's character to be classy and bold - a new age mother who doesn't even shy from openly talking about 'sex' with her daughter and son-in-law. She easily mouths the dialogues 'Sex Ho Gaya Na Toh Important Before Commitment'.
While for ages we witnessed an array of moms on-screen from the tragic sacrificing single mother Nirupa Roy to loving, caring mom Reema Lagoo to revenge-seeking maa Rakhee or the bindass & friendly mother Kirron Kher, but it seems R. Balki is set to redefine the concept of mother or rather break the stereotype of the mothers on the big screen.
And what is interesting is Swaroop, who is back on celluloid after a long gap, effortlessly slips into the character and brings it on to the table. Besides, the actor is also looking gorgeous and fashionable, indeed a refreshing change after years. The spirit and style of her character certainly reminds us of Swaroop's character in Kundan Shah's hit TV sitcom 'Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi'. Kudos to R. Balki to have once again brought the talented actor on the fore!
Perhaps, with KI AND KA the idea of mothers on-screen is set to change!
