In town to promote their film,Vinay Pathak and Deepa Sahi hailed humour as the only way to sort out marital issues
Vinay Pathak is on another adventure after Chalo Dilli and Bheja Fry 2. This time,he is playing Jai Dhuval,a small town guy travelling with two married couples through the ever-changing terrains of the Himalayas in a desperate attempt to marry his girlfriend,played by Riya Sen. On Saturday,Pathak visited the city along with the cast of his latest film Tere Mere Phere (TMP). He quipped,The journey of my character is very symbolic. The Himalayas seem beautiful at first,but then you come across steep cliffs,landslides and broken roads. Similarly,a girlfriend-boyfriend relationship is very cute and sweet but with marriage,the cuteness goes out of the window!
Pathak believes that men and women are two different species and will always have different thought processes. One needs to think,analyse,understand and recognise the responsibilities and intricacies that marriage requires before tying the knot. Problems arise in marital relationships only when these things are thought of after marriage, said the actor.
This film,which will hit theatres on September 30,marks the directorial debut of Deepa Sahi.
Marriage is a serious subject and I have always found it absurd that couples have been fighting over the same issues for generations. I think the only solution to this problem lies in humour, Sahi said.
She believes that one needs to find a balance between materialistic things and inner peace to live a wholesome life. People must not get married to change each other. The film is not preachy but it does give out a message, she revealed.
