On this first association with a Bollywood venture, Phee Teik Yeoh, CEO, Vistara said, “Cinema has always inspired the lives of people which led us to believe that it is a method to reach out to a wider audience. Partnering with Ki & Ka provided us with a platform to showcase our premium cabins, world class dining experience, inflight entertainment, seamless and personalised service both on the ground and in the air, which makes us unique to flyers, young and old, across India.”
R Balki, Director and writer, Ki & Ka said, “We are delighted to join hands with India’s fastest growing full service carrier, Vistara, to take Ki & Ka into the hearts of the masses in an unprecedented way. In Vistara, we have found an ideal partner as its quintessential inflight experience includes genuinely caring crew, fine dining experience, pioneering entertainment system and a feel of elegance. This played a key role in the movie storyline as we wanted to showcase Kareena as an enterprising corporate leader who challenges the stereotypical gender roles in the society.”
Kareena Kapoor Khan, Bollywood actress and Lead cast in Ki & Ka, said “Ki & Ka has been an absolute fulfilling and enjoyable experience in so many ways. An integral part of the movie has been shot on-board a Vistara aircraft where in spite of spending numerous hours in a confined space I did not end up feeling tired. The entire experience was pleasant and relaxing. We hope that the audiences enjoy our journey in the movie, just as we enjoyed traveling with Vistara.”
Arjun Kapoor, Bollywood actor and Lead cast in Ki & Ka, said “I enjoyed the experience of flying with Vistara, redefining aviation. Ki & Ka also redefines stereotypes, where Kareena and I play a modern couple.”
