Storyline of Fitoor is related to current topics



Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif was revealing the storyline of her upcoming venture Abhishek Kapoor’s  Fitoor, that this movie is much relevant to the current topics. “I think more important than being inspired by Great Expectations, it is a relatable story which talks about many problems these days,” Katrina stated in an interview which is an adaptation of Charles Dicken’s applauded novel. She further added that “It’s probably one of the most relatable stories I can think of to have been adapted. Whether you’ve read the book or don’t care about it, the film stands on its own and doesn’t need the book to support it. I hope people come into the theatres based on wanting to give the film a shot,”

She was telling about the social stigmas that the film portrayed, “Social stigma is a big thing. The social status, as I would put it, oftentimes comes in love stories and happens around us because of the nature of our country,” She continued by praising the integrity of the original novel, “Abhishek has maintained the integrity of the story of Great Expectations. It’s basically about a mother who has been extremely jilted by her lover and become very bitter. As a result, she is almost brainwashing and manipulating her daughter and kind of having a wrong way on love and life,” Kaif further added that “Maybe, in a certain way, she is trying to protect her daughter from the heartbreak which love can sometimes bring and, in some way, encouraging her to take revenge on men in general for the hurt,”

Fitoor, which means passion, is the pivotal of the universe, “If we talk about ‘fitoor’ and love, then obviously it is just the overwhelming, all-encompassing feeling that becomes the centre to the point of the universe,” she holds it as, “Love can have that effect on you. When you talk about ‘fitoor’ in relation to the movie, that’s the way I see it,”

She was telling about her passion regarding her work, “I am definitely very passionate about my work. It’s not just my job; it’s also something that brings me satisfaction. There are times when you are tired and have a bad day. But there are many moments when you see the work you do and feel wonderful.

She is very selective regarding her roles in the movies and has worked on different roles from romantic to comedy and action films, “I have always been very basic and instinctive with the kind of roles I choose. If I like a film and it sounds like a film I want to be a part of, then I always go for it. There hasn’t been a plan or strategy; it’s always been very instinctive,”
