About Kapoor & Sons Movie:

In early 2015, Karan Johar announced his next film, titled Kapoor & Sons, which will feature Fawad Khan with Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt as the lead roles. Johar said in an interview “We have a very stylish star cast.” The movie revolves around two brothers played by Fawad Khan and Sidharth Malhotra. Rishi Kapoor will be playing the grandfather of the male leads.

Karan Johar said in an interview, “Kapoor & Sons (Since 1921) was a tough film to cast. There was a point when we almost didn’t make it. We kept it on the back burner for over a year. No one was willing to do Fawad Khan’s role. We went to six actors and after six rejections, I told Shakun Batra (director) that we should drop the idea and he started developing another screenplay.”

Kapoor & Sons marked the second collaboration between Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt after their debut together in Student of the Year (2012).

Kapoor & Sons was released in cinemas on 18 March 2016. The film upon its release received critical praise, particularly for its writing, direction, music, and performances (particularly Khan, Rishi Kapoor, Shah, and Rajat Kapoor).

Made on a budget of ₹28 crores, Kapoor & Sons was released in cinemas on 18 March 2016 and earned ₹148 crores worldwide, and was declared a blockbuster at the box office. It received high critical acclaim from both Indian and international critics.

At the 62nd Filmfare Awards, Kapoor & Sons received 8 nominations, including Best Film, Best Director (Batra), and Best Supporting Actress (Pathak Shah), and won 5 awards with Rishi Kapoor winning Best Supporting Actor over his co-stars and fellow nominees Khan and Rajat Kapoor.
