Aditya Roy Kapur’s upcoming film Ok Jaanu shows a couple living together before they go their separate ways to fulfil their career goals. The actor is paired opposite Shraddha Kapoor, with whom he gave his first hit film Aashiqui 2. On being asked whether he relates to the concept of live-in relationships, the actor said it depends from person to person but given an option he would prefer marriage over living together.
In an interview to Catchnews, Aditya said, “I think live-in relationship works for a few people and it doesn’t for others. I have never done it, so I can’t speak about the pros and cons. I don’t know if that will work for me or not, but I am definitely not close to the idea. For an arrangement like that to succeed, one needs to have the right feeling for the right person. I believe in the institution of marriage, but I am not ready for marriage either.”

Aditya Roy Kapur also 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,” he said at the press conference on Saturday, ahead of the film’s release.
The actor said that he is extremely excited about OK Jaanu because it is very different from Aashiqui 2. He feels that the subject of OK Jaanu is fresh and tackles a different issue.
