The chemistry Shahid Kapur and Amrita Rao share onscreen seems to match the camaraderie they share off it, as one discovered at the Rajshri Productions office where the duo was promoting their forthcoming film Vivah.
Kapur, clad in a tee and jeans, and Rao in a yellow salwaar-kurta, looked like they had stepped right out of the film's poster. The pair talk to HT Style on marriage and movies.
In this day how do you relate, to your characters in Vivah?
Shahid: You don't necessarily have to always relate, but must learn to adapt to the situation the character faces. As an actor it would be very boring to play myself. There were certain areas I could relate to. I've never gone to see a girl for an arranged meeting, so that part was interesting - to do something that I've never done off screen.
Amrita: When Soorajji and his dad narrated the script, they asserted "don't see the film as a banner and that you must do it, because it's important to relate to Poonam". Coming from a contrasting background, at no point did I feel why did she do such things or she should have done that instead. That's how I committed myself to the part.
How much have your views on marriage changed over the years with college romances, serious relationships and so on?
Shahid: It's individual as one person can't decide for anyone else and I don't want to be judgmental. The understanding between two people forms a relationship and it's important that they should be happy in it.I'm strongly in favour of marriage. It's a fundamental aspect of our lives. This is one relationship we're allowed to choose, and with this we form our family with which we, spend the rest of our lives.
Amrita: I agree with Shahid, although a sizeable number of people think of the concept as frivolous. Divorce is no longer taboo. You casually say "We, didn't get along" and easily snap out of it. But then what's the difference between humans and animals who don't have responsibility commitment.
Do you believe in arranged marriages?
Amrita: My parents had one too. While our generation is still familiar with the concept of arranged marriage, the next one doesn't really know about it. There's nothing wrong with the concept or with the fact that most of the new generation is unaware of it. As long as you know the person well enough and are ready for marriage, then you can go ahead with it.
Shahid: I disagree with Amrita that people are not familiar with arranged marriage. That's a misconception with people from different strata and cities. A large number of people in small towns and cities get into arranged marriages. Depending on their background and upbringing, people take different paths. Some meet people and fall in love, while some meet their partners through arranged meetings.

I got both Mehr and Yash and I like them a lot!I have Honeylove side by side with Yash. What I can tell is that Honeylove definitely has more pink into it than Yash. Yash is cetniarly more neutral, and thus true to the website description. And at the same time Yash is not as close to yellow on me as Peachstock, thank God! Thanks a lot, Christine!

Note: This is not Amrita Rao's official website. It's highly unlikely that she visits this site or even knows about it. So please dont post any personal messages to her as it wont reach her.
But still if you want to just show the world that how much you love her, please go ahead and do it :-). Probably someday we will try to send the message across to her.
