2 States film is directed by Abhishek Varman and produced by Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala. The film stars Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in lead roles. This flim based on the 2009 novel of the same name written by Chetan Bhagat. 2 States is a happy film. Punjabi boy and Tamilian girl discover love on their college campus. However, their diverse cultures make its culmination a challenge. Krish Malhotra (Arjun) and Ananya Swaminathan(Alia) meet on the IIM Ahmedabad campus. Sparks fly between economic coaching and food poaching. Their tender love, compulsive copulation and kissing chemistry make this couple reason that they could spend a lifetime together. But in India, where tradition and parents are nurtured, couples have to literally marry each other's families. Amrita-Ronit, Revathi-Shiv Subramaniam infuse life into their roles of the Punjabi and Tamil parents. The spitfire Alia and a sober Arjun are also lovable. The movie had too much angst and a tragic end. The film was released on 18 April 2014.
