There was lot of humour and leg-pulling at the trailer launch of 2 States, which was attended by the film’s producers — Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala, the lead pair Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt and debutant director Abhishek Varman.
When Abhishek was teased about being infatuated by Alia while directing her, Alia’s rumoured boyfriend and her co-star of the film Arjun came up with a solution. He offered to exchange seats with Abhishek as the leading man was sitting between the two. And Alia was most amused when there was curiosity among people who wanted to know about “tall, macho and boisterous” Arjun suddenly turning soft-spoken, geeky and restrained for the film.
When asked about Arjun’s look in the film, which was said to be inspired from Abhishek, the latter said that it was accidental and not intentional. Interestingly, however, Arjun and Abhishek were colour coordinated most of the time during the shoot.
