Fawad called Ratna Pathak his permanent filmi maa, and Alia Bhatt explains why she wanted to work with him

Fawad Khan fans let out a happy sigh when they saw the trailer for his Bollywood next, Kapoor & Sons yesterday.

The trailer was both adorable and dramatic, charting the highs and lows of modern family life.

Here are some highlights of the trailer launch held in Mumbai yesterday:

1- The trio went matchy-matchy at the trailer launch

After endearing us in the trailer, Fawad, Alia and Siddharth continued to be cute as they attended the trailer launch in colour-coordinated outfits.

Fawad and Siddharth proved that they're still brothers at heart, and wore matching sneakers! Don't tell us they went shopping together!

2- Fawad had no words to express how he felt at the trailer launch

So he resorted to the following gesture:

Here's hoping it was nothing offensive!

3- Alia Bhatt confessed how much she wanted to work with Fawad

Fawad blushed a light pink as his young co-star Alia Bhatt admitted that she was eager to work with him:

According to Filmfare, Bhatt said, "Everyone's seen his work on TV out there. I was really looking forward to working with him as an actor and we got along really well. We generally had a lot of fun while we were shooting."

4- Fawad said Ratna Pathak Shah will be his mother forever

Kapoor & Sons will be the second time that veteran actress plays Fawad's on-screen mother after Khoobsurat, leading Fawad to dub her his "permanent filmi maa".

“I think she is my permanent filmi maa. I think working with a veteran actress like her was great. I am completely new,” Fawad said at the trailer launch, reports Indian Express.

“It is a delight to work with actors from whom you can learn something. She (Ratna Pathak Shah) is very giving and collaborative. She is a party animal," he added.

5- Rishi Kapoor made a disappearing act

If there was a more aww-inducing presence on screen, it was the Kapoor dadu played by Rishi Kapoor.

He was one of the first to reach the scene yesterday, but hurried out as soon as the trailer was screened.

According to Indian Express, "As soon as the screening of the trailer finished, Rishi who was seen typing on his phone furiously walked up to Karan Johar and whispered something into his ears. On hearing the same, Karan’s face turned a tad grave and the filmmaker nodded in response to Rishi’s whispering statements. Almost immediately enough, Rishi took off like wind before one could even blink their eyes."

We wonder what pressing concern dragged the senior Kapoor away...
