8 Things You Can Expect In Kedarnath

  1. Intensely passionate  vibes between the  two  protagonists. Debutante  Sara Ali Khan has apparently  given her ‘veteran’ costar Sushant Singh Rajput a  run for his money.Besides  three words  in their names,  Sushant and Sara share another  important trait. They are  very competitive.
  2. The love story unfolds in  the  midst of  a pilgrimage. No Hindi film has equated  spiritual and romantic  love  before this.Love is  perceived  as religion in Kedarnath.
  3. Sara Ali Khan will be  a star  after the release  of Kedarnath. She was  intensely involved in  the process of creating the character  of a Hindu girl on a teerth yatra who falls for  the Muslim chap who ferries her  across the mountain.The peak is reached  in unexpected ways.
  4. Sushant  loves  to get into the method-actor mode. He actually learnt  to  carry  pilgrims as a pithoo .After the  back-breaking task his back was ready  to  give up. His determination was  not affected, though.
  5.  This  is  not the first time Sushant  plays a Muslim in love with a  Hindu girl. In his rather  memorable guest appearance  in Raj Kumar Hirani’s PK he played a Pakistani  who falls in  love with an Indian girl.
  6. Director Abhishek Kapoor   has worked  a certain magic with Sushant  in Kai Po Che, the film with which  Sushantmade his successful  transition from television to cinema. Thereafter they fell out.Kapoor did   the ambitious Fitoor  with Aditya  Roy Kapoor. Now when the director is back with Sushant there  is magic in the air once again.
  7. No other recent  mainstream  Hindi film has been shot  in Kedarnath. Ironically the  priests of Kedarnath are  up in arms against the  film when in fact  Abhishek Kapoor has  paid the most handsome homage to the spirit of the teerthdham.
  8. Unconfirmed rumours  insist Sushant remained  a  celibate during the  making  of  Kedarnath  to  evoke  a feeling of religious  purity within himself. If true, then all we can say is it may be time for the celibate to celebrate this Friday.
