Vidya, Farhan pair-up for ‘Shaadi ke Side Effects’

After the latest hits, Vidya Balan is on great demand. She has signed film opposite Farhan Akhar titled, ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects’. This is a sequel to Mallika Sherawat and Rahul Bose’s film, ‘Pyaar Ke Side Effects

Producer Pritish Nandy adds, "SKSE begins where PKSE ends. Except the lead pair, everyone including director Saket Choudhary and music director Pritam remain. SKSE is a funny, clever, wild film full of the fascinating ways love works before and after marriage. PKSE had four songs that became very popular, and the story had very strong connectivity with the audience, so we decided to make a sequel. Unfortunately, it a took a while in writing. Saket is a brilliant director but a slow writer!"

Talking about the unusual casting of Vidya and Farhan, Nandy says, "We make cinema that is big and also intelligent. Farhan is one of the most intelligent actors today. He and Vidya are two of the biggest stars of 2011. It will instantly make my film topical. Both of them loved the script immediately."

Farhan says, "SKSE is a departure from my earlier work as an actor. It's a romantic comedy — a genre I haven't done yet — so it promises to be a new experience. Saket has written a funny yet moving story about simple things that everyone can relate to. Also, I look forward to working with Vidya."

Vidya says, "I loved Pyaar Ke Side Effects, and SKSE is the story of what happens to a man and a woman after they become husband and wife. It begins where every romcom ends. Saket's observation of relationships is simple and that makes it naturally and perhaps sometimes even unintentionally funny, mad and sexy. It's the first time that Farhan and I will be working together. He's so real that everything about our situation in SKSE would seem believable.''
