Sushant Singh Rajput: I play Ishaan, a 23-year-old, very fit cricketer. The most exciting part about my character is that he is full of contradictions. From the outside, he comes across as a very insensitive and impulsive guy, but from the inside, he is very pure, honest and sensitive. Also, he loves his friends like his family.
Why is Amrita Puri, the female lead, missing from the film's promotions?
AK: The film is essentially about three friends, the love angle is a parallel track. Amrita's character is very interesting too. Though she is the only female lead, she plays a girlfriend, sister, daughter as well as a mother to her brother, Ishaan. She has so many shades to her character that we don't need another girl to fulfill any aspect in the film.
Why did you title the film as Kai Po Che?
AK: Kai Po Che may be an out-of-the-box title, but it has a certain energy to it. It is a victory call for all those who fly kites during Sankrant across the country. It translates into 'I cut you' and metaphorically, that happens among the friends too. It is a title that you take home after you see the film.
Tell us about your favourite scenes in the film.
SRK: There are some beautiful sequences in the film — one where the friends are finally making something of their lives and a song actually takes them through the journey. I also love the climax which is a culmination to the build up of the characters, and it is quite different from the book.
AS: At the beginning of the film, there is a scene where you see the three of us fight over something for the first time. The way it was shot was magical and that is one of the best scenes, for me.
