Have you missed ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ in the theatres? The authorities released the movie in the theatres in the month of December 2021. But, in case you missed it, there is nothing to worry about. This movie is now streaming online on Netflix.
Today, January 7, Netflix announced that the Ayushmann Khurrana and Vaani Kapoor’s film is now streaming on its OTT platform. Sharing the news on its official Instagram page, Netflix India wrote, “Verified Aashiqs are here to do Aashiqui and we’re all set to witness! Watch #ChandigarhKareAashiqui, now streaming on Netflix! @ayushmannk @vaanikapoor @gattukapoor (sic).”
Two great actors acted out in the film ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui. They are Ayushmann Khurana and Vaani Kapoor. The renowned Abhishek Kapoor is the director of the film. It is a romantic comedy that focuses on the love story of a transgender person.
The Press Trust of India took an interview of both Ayushmann Khurrana and Vaani Kapoor. Ayushmann Khurrana plays the role of a cross-functional athlete. Vaani Kapoor plays the role of the transgender person. In an earlier conversation with PTI, she said, “We just wanted to normalize this and break stereotypes.
There exists this perception, built over all these years when we were growing up. The reference points we witnessed in films and shows, I think we don’t need to live by it today.
That is a wrongful representation. A man dressed in a woman’s saree is not the correct representation of a trans girl. They are as stunning, beautiful and ‘normal’ as any other cis girl.” She called the film “a conversation starter”.
The entire Bollywood with all the stars and crew saw the film. Hrithik Roshan was one of them. He applauded the film and wrote on Twitter, “Dear Gattu. What I saw in #ChandigarhKareAashiqui was your heart and goodness mixed with an incredible sense of commercial entertainment. I cried and laughed and had goose flesh. What else does a film need to do! Well done my friend! Come, let’s celebrate.”
The Indian Express also had a talk with the director of the film. In an earlier conversation with them, Abhishek Kapoor opened out about not casting a trans person for the role. He said, “We went through many avenues and there was a thought about casting a trans person.
But you know I find everyone is so fascinated just by actors. Why is it that everything is legitimized by an actor? Why can’t a trans person write the film? The question is: why can’t a trans person direct the film? First of all, this fascination is incorrect.
Films are not made by actors, they are made by filmmakers and writers. Eventually, there is a representation by an individual actor but I try to see above this because there is a story to be told,” he said.
After watching the film, Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express gave the film 2.5 stars in her review. She further wrote, “Ayushmann Khurrana, Chandigarh boy for real, is right at home in his bristly-brawny-softie Manu. Vaani Kapoor’s svelte certified physical trainer with a troubled past takes you back to the flash of the promise she had shown in ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’.”
