Aditya thinks that live-in-relationships which are common these days are not a negative thing. “It is not about what is right or wrong. Live-in relationships are common these days, that’s why so many movies are being made on the subject. Many of my friends are going through live-in relationships, some have worked out and some didn’t. But I don’t feel it is a negative thing and marriage has to do anything with it.”

Asked about her opinion on the concept, Shraddha said: “I am open minded (to the idea of a live-in) but I think it will be a little difficult because I stay with my parents… But it also depends on if I get that partner with whom I feel like living-in and if there’s a future… then I am open to the idea.”

The film sees Aditya and Shraddha Kapoor as a young couple in a live-in relationship in Mumbai while Naseeruddin Shah and Leela Samson play an older couple who are their landlords.

 “I don’t think it is wrong if a couple who want to get married get into a live-in relationship to know each other better,” Aditya added. Agreeing with her ‘Aashiqui 2‘ co-star, Shraddha said, “It (the film) is an interesting take on live-in-relationship.”
But Aditya added, “The film is not only about live-in-relationship. ‘Ok Jaanu‘ is actually a love story. The couple just happens to be in a live-in. We are not preaching about what is wrong or how modern we are. It has shown the relationship respectfully.”
Directed by Shaad Ali, the romantic drama is releasing on January 13.
