He adds that the film’s concept took off from the principle that a few years after the wedding, couples do tend to get bored. “I teach Akash how to keep the relationship intact. It won’t be too much if I say that I am the ‘mind’ for Akash’s ‘heart’; I give him gyaan about being practical and not emotional and how it is more important to keep the interest going in a marriage,” says the 45-year-old actor.
Arshad, who has been happily married to former VJ Maria Goretti for 14 years, says he knows exactly what it takes for a marriage to work. “Marriage is an investment,” I go out of the way to save my marriage, keeping the interest going in each other’s company,” he says.
