Arrange marriage vs Love marriage- an age old debate that has no end to it!

Now, a third vertical to this can be a live-in relationship, which sometimes ends up into a love marriage.

But what does such couple feel about the concept of 'arrange marriage'?

Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor, who are portraying a couple in a live-in relationship, in their upcoming flick 'Ok Jaanu,' weigh in to this discussion.

During an interview with ANI, the 'Ok Jaanu' stars shared their thoughts on what can be the possible pros and cons in an arrange marriage.

Sharddha said, "For pro in an arrange marriage is, sometimes the parents' judgment on things can be really helpful; their advise on someone might work out well. For me, the con is that you don't know each other from before."

Aditya, on the other hand, feels discovering new things about your partner, can be both good and bad.

"Pro might be, you can discover new things about each other with time, which might be adventurous. And con might be, you start discovering things in a person, which you don't like; then every day is a bad adventure," he said.

On a related note, both the stars said that in real life, they are 'cool' with live-in relationship, as far as love and happiness is associated to it.

Shaad Ali directed 'Ok Jaanu,' is an official remake of Mani Ratnam's Tamil-flick 'O Kadhal Kanmani' and is set to hit the theatres this Friday, 13 January.

Though we are now in 2017, live-in relationship is still a not-so-acceptable concept in India, especially among the parents' generation.

During the interview with ANI, when Aditya Roy Kapur was quizzed on the same, he said, the parents' generation will take time to be cool with the concept.

"I think as live-in is not in our culture, hence that can be a reason as to why people don't accept this concept. The change of thought will take its own time and that's natural. Our parents' generation never went into that stuff, so for them, to get used to this idea, will naturally take time," he said.

Further explaining his thoughts, the 31-year-old actor said, things will be easier once the parent realise that their children are old enough to take decisions, "But once they realise that their son or daughter is old enough to take decisions and trust them that they can take care of themselves and their partner, then they will understand that what people do in a live-in relationship is nothing more or less that what they do in a relationship, without living in together."

Adding, "So I think, time is changing and people are open to it."

On the same note, Aditya and Shraddha Kapoor will soon be seen playing a couple in a live-in relationship, in their upcoming flick 'Ok Jaanu.'

Directed by Shaad Ali, this film is an official remake of Mani Ratnam's Tamil-flick 'O Kadhal Kanmani' and is set to hit the theatres this Friday, 13 January.
