Mumbai, March 28 -- Politics is in the air, and Youngistaan is one film that shows the Prime Minister of the country in a different light. Indian cinema is coming of age, and perhaps for the first time ever, the PM of India will be shown to be in a live-in relationship.
Actor Jackky Bhagnani, who plays the lead role, will be seen opposite Neha Sharma in the film that releases today (March 28). "We are showing a modern and progressive PM in the film. We talk about moving ahead with the times and that's what my character Abhimanyu does. Nowadays, living in isn't taboo, and he feels that if he's living with someone, it doesn't mean that he has to get married to the person. He believes that he should get married when the time is right for him, and not get bogged down by expectations. If he's doing his job well, then why should anyone have a problem?" says Jackky.
The film reflects on changing times, but Jackky says the story is unique and presented in an entertaining way. The actor believes that the film will send out a message to society and create awareness. "The film isn't about a live-in relationship per se; it's about getting rid of double standards. Don't be a hypocrite. If you make a mistake, admit it, correct it and move on. If you aren't ready for marriage, it's okay. As long as you are committed to the person, you don't need a piece of paper," says Jackky.
