Kareena and Arjun wrap up ‘Ki and Ka’ shoot


Kareena Kapoor Khan and Arjun are playing the lead characters in R Balki’s film on gender roles ‘Ki and Ka’, have wrapped up the shooting of the film. The film has been shot in Delhi and the last schedule of the film was shot in Dubai.

The film wrapped up its shooting schedule on Wednesday and the team of 'Ki and Ka', including Balki's wife Gauri Shinde celebrated by cutting a cake in a suite in The Palace Downtown Hotel in Dubai.

Arjun took to Twitter share the news. “Wrapped film number 7...can't believe it's flown by so quickly...amazing experience...hopefully it's my lucky number 7...#KiandKa,” the ‘Ishaqzaade’ actor posted on the micro-blogging site.

Kareena and Arjun have been paired for the first time in the romantic comedy. The actors play the role of a married couple with contrasting ideologies. The ‘Jab We Met’ actress will be seen in the role of a career-oriented and ambitious woman, Arjun will play the role of a stay-at-home husband.

During the three-day shooting schedule in Dubai, Kareena and Arjun shot for a romantic song in locations including The Dubai Mall and fountain which will be featured prominently.

The film derives its title from linguistic gender divisions of the Hindi language found in the words ‘ladki’ and ‘ladka’ meaning ‘girl’ and ‘boy’. Speaking about it, the director said, “Hindi is a language where just not human beings, even objects have genders. From chairs to scooters to buses, everything is masculine or feminine.”

"There's so much emphasis placed on genders, so the whole theme of this film is 'genders don't matter', because whatever happens, whichever gender plays whatever role, the problems are going to be the same. ‘Ki and Ka’ is not about working men or working women... it is not about ambitious men or women either. It’s a gender-neutral film,” Balki added.

The film also stars legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan and his wife veteran actress Jaya in cameo roles. The film is slated to release next year.
