Filmmaker R. Balki, who has made heart-warming films like 'Cheeni Kum' and 'Paa', says his new movie 'Ki & Ka' is an "imaginary story" as he does not believe in borrowing from real life to show on reel.

"This film ('Ki & Ka') is not inspired by anybody's life. It is just an imaginary story... I don't believe borrowing things from real life. I think films should also add something to life," Balki told the media here while promoting the forthcoming movie.
The filmmaker hopes that the audience takes back something from the film to implement in their lives.
"Hopefully with this film, people say 'I want to live like this, I want to be in love like this or even fight like this'," he added.
A romantic-comedy film, it revolves around actor Arjun Kapoor's character Kabir, who is a house-husband and Kareena Kapoor Khan's character Kia, who is a career-oriented woman. The film is about the relationship that the two share and how society sees their relationship.
Slated to release on April 1, 'Ki & Ka' also has a cameo by megastar Amitabh Bachchan and his actress-politician wife Jaya.
