JugJugg Jeeyo: Kiara Advani Opens Up About Modern Relationships, Talks Divorce


While her last two films Shershaah and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 have been adored by critics and audiences, Bollywood actress Kiara Advani, who is gearing up for her upcoming “Jugjugg Jeeyo,” says the main problem in new- age is not having deep conversations to understand the other person’s point of view.

She shares how the upcoming movie does just that with the right doses of entertainment. In conversation with IANS, Kiara opens up about her recent success and her upcoming film where she says her character is closest to her own personality.

When asked how she welcomes the recent success, Kiara told IANS: “Of course my heart is filled with gratitude, but it’s also overwhelming at the same time. I mean everyone loved Dimple by Shershaah and the box office result shows how much our audience loved Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. It’s so surreal for me to get so much love from our fans, really! in both films, but what’s great is that it also matched the expectations of the public!”

In the upcoming film, Jugjugg Jeeyo Kiara plays a modern young woman who is married to her childhood sweetheart and yet on the verge of divorce.

Sharing her thoughts on divorce which is otherwise stigmatized by society, Kiara said: “I think in our film we are addressing exactly that, how complicated a new-age relationship is; how a marriage between two lovers is turned into a divorce, only because of the lack of deep communication.”

She went on to add, “When we argue with our lovers, we tend to establish how we are right, instead of understanding the other side of the story; of course, ego comes in between. For We, we are constantly balancing between the professional and personal life. Often, we tend to give up a regular argument just to deal with a temporary situation. The crack in a relationship starts from there.

The actress says she, along with the film’s director Raj Mehta and her co-star Varun Dhawan, had several brainstorming sessions to bring the topic straight to the table.

Sharing how close her character Naina is to her own personality, Kiara said, “I think she represents the modern Indian woman. A woman does not have to feel guilty for having the ambition to be CEO of a company and at the same time the wife of her husband and the daughter of her parents. It’s equality, because even men do the same thing and no one wonders how they balance each other. I firmly believe in the same philosophy.

“I also believe that men should not always be the sole provider of a family, financial responsibility should be divided, as well as emotional expectations. Since Naina is the believer of the same, it is the closest of who I am in real life,” the actress added.

Jugjugg Jeeyo`, also starring Anil Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor, produced by Karan Johar, hits theaters on June 24.
