Kriti: ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ is not a love triangle, it’s more of a family film

Ayushmann Khurrana, Kriti Sanon and Rajkummar Rao have been promoting their soon-to-release movie ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ everywhere. So during a recent interaction, Kriti was quizzed as to what sets their film apart from the other films which had love triangles in them, as this movie too has one.

Kriti replied, “I think personally it’s not about a love triangle, it’s more of a family film. You will see so many relationships except for the love triangle. There’s a father-daughter relationship, a mother-daughter relationship. There are friends and how they deal with each other and then their friendship. So, it has a lot more than just a love triangle and it’s not about the romance, it’s the situational comedy that’s happening here.” (Also Read: Ayushmann on shedding his ‘good boy’ image for ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’)

She also spoke about reports of the movie being inspired from a book called as ‘Ingredients of Love’. Said Kriti, “Honestly, I didn’t know about this book at all. I didn’t know that it’s come from a book and I spoke to them. And I think it’s basically a line that they took from the book which they absolutely loved. It’s an idea and after that the whole film’s script has been reworked into something else based on that idea. So it’s not that you will read the book and then watch the film and it would be the same thing.”

‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ is directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, written by Nitesh Tiwari, produced by Junglee Pictures and BR Studios and will be releasing on August 18, 2017.
