YRF released a hilarious promotional video ‘The Other Kapoor Show’ starring superstar Ranbir Kapoor for their upcoming film Shamshera. The actor is seen cashing in on himself, his career and even his marriage ceremony with actress Alia Bhatt.
The humorous video begins with Ranbir playing the host and introducing himself as Ranbir Kapoor with ‘U’, ‘A Self Made Host’. He then introduces his guest, who is not his ‘hero’, Ranbir Kapoor as ‘another Kapoor of the industry’ with ‘2OS’.
As the host, Ranbir deliberately messes with the name of his guest and the name of the film and calls it ‘Shershah’ instead of ‘Shamshera’. Clearly corrected by an astonished Kapoor, the self-produced host Kapoor quipped, “Whatever”.
‘Kapur’ goes on to poke fun at Kapoor for disappointing his great Kapoor Kahndan legacy as we get to know early on that the reason for Kapur’s grudge against Kapoor is his last name. As Kapur, Ranbir goes on to poke fun at his marriage to actress Alia Bhatt. “Alia ne pehle kalank ki, phir sadak 2, phir aapse shaadi. Aapko kya lagta hai unka bad luck kab khatam hoga? (Alia did Kalank, Sadak 2 and then married you. When do you think her bad luck will end?)” he said.
Kapoor continued to capitalize on the momentum of his career and film. “When you picked up Alia your pictures went viral. Don’t you think that the time has come for you to take up your career as well? ‘Kapoor’ said. At one point Kapoor called Kapoor an ‘imitation’ for imitating Charlie Chapman in Barfi, Tintin in Jagga (Jagga Jasoos) and Sanju (actor Sanjay Dutt) in Sanju.
At the end of the video, Kapoor finally gets a chance to promote his film Shamshera, but the lights on the set go off.
