Mumbai: Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’ has captured the imagination of movie buffs with catchy, melodious music and entertaining trailers. But, at the heart of this film’s growing popularity, is Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan’s cackling chemistry. In more ways than one, Kavya and Humpty, with their innocent conviction for their love, remind of classic Bollywood onscreen couples.
The onscreen lovers display refreshing energy and make young, headstrong love look very real. Their chemistry can be put down to the fact that in real life, Alia and Varun are best buddies, having developed a bond while shooting for their first film ‘ Student of The Year’. In every public appearance for the promotions of ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’ Alia’s spontaneous nature and Varun’s quiet charm catch everyone’s attention. So natural is their mutual connect, that jokes between Alia and Varun fly thick and fast, much to the amusement of everyone around them.
At the film’s trailer launch, Varun teased Alia saying“Alia’s skin is like butter!” Alia describes their relationship, “Varun and I share a love hate relationship. We fight very often, all the time, in fact, people around us tell us to stop! It’s a lot like Humpty and Kavya. We fight so much because we actually love each other!” And the close vibes that they share were most evident during the Mumbai metro promotional trip that Aia and Varun took, whereby his hobbling onscreen lady love depended on his support and help completely during the journey!
Alia’s energy, perky nature and ability to light up any moment perfectly complements Varun’s subtle charm. At the Life Ok! Awards, Alia surprised the audience by proposing to Varun impromptu, just like Kavya would take charge of a situation in Humpty’s life!
Their close friendship and the bond of trust that they developed as ‘Students’, translates effortlessly on screen in ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’. With such natural chemistry oozing from ‘Kavya’ and ‘Humpty’ and their high voltage love story, July 11 promises a grand onscreen treat for film buffs!
