Stories based on short hero tall heroine romance have attracted filmmakers quite often. Though Shahrukh Khan’s upcoming movie Zero is said to be the first bollywood dwarf movie, the actors like Kamal Hasan (Appu Raja), Anupam Kher (Jaan-e-maan), and Johnny Lever have also played dwarf characters really well. However, when it comes about romance between a short guy and tall girl, bollywood has following list for you to offer.
Arjun Patiala is an upcoming movie having Diljit Dosanjh and Kriti Sanon in lead. Kriti plays a journalist and Diljit a small town guy. The movie is based on the height difference of a couple. Well, Kriti is taller than Diljit in real life as well. In fact, she is taller than most of the contemporary actors as well. It is going to showcase the mindset of people or their reactions on such couples (of short guy and tall girls). Apart from Diljit and Kriti, the movie has Fukrey star Varun Sharma as well. Varun plays an arrogant cop in the movie. The movie is going to release on 13th September, 2018. It is directed by Rohit Jugraj.
Main Meri Patni Aur Woh:
It’s movie with nice concept, but hasn’t been executed well. Main Meri Patni Aur Woh was released in 2005, having popular comedian Rajpal Yadav and acclaimed Bengali actress Rituparna Sengupta in leads. Apart from both, it has renowned actor Kay Kay Menon as well. The movie is based on insecurity that a short guy feels being with a beautiful and tall wife. Chandan Arora is the director of the movie. Interesting here is to mention that Rajpal has co-written the story of the movie as well.
This is certainly going to be the biggest dwarf movies in Bollywood. Shahrukh Khan has shown immense interest on this subject, and looks quite desperate to make it a success. Along SRK, the movie has two of the tallest actresses, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in lead. Directed by Anand L Rai, Zero release date has been locked for Christmas this year (i.e. 21st December, 2018). Reportedly, top make-up artists have been hired to bring perfection in to Shahrukh’s look. The movie’s first look has already been released, which has got mixed reviews.
Veteran Kamal Hasan plays a midget in the movie. Many interesting stories are there related to the movie’s shooting. As technology was not as advanced then as of today, Kamal had to put up with a lot of pain physically to execute the character well. In fact, a pair of special shoes was made to fold the legs from the knees. The extent of pain Kamal must have gone through is clearly evident. However, he never complained. In fact, Kamal himself had ordered for such a shoe to ensure his character looks perfect on screen.
So, these are the movies basically from bollywood. One can have many interesting options in this category of movies, like Up For Love in Hollywood.
