About the film, he said: “The USP is that it is a relatable family drama, it is a sweet and a heartfelt story, I feel that such kind of films are hardly made because it is very simple and made for the love of filmmaking. There was no need to plug in any unimportant element and no need to sprinkle any ‘masala’, the story is that complete. The movie itself is so entertaining and so full of love that people would watch it,” Khan added. ‘Kapoor & Sons’ has been produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and directed by Shakun Batra.
