Decoupled: R Madhavan and Surveen Chawla discuss their reel and real-life characters

Decoupled is one of the most awaited shows on Netflix. Ahead of its release, the makers have released a video where the two leads R Madhavan and Surveen Chawla are seen indulging in a conversation about how they are similar or different from their characters Arya and Shruti in the series.

The two are seen asking each other questions about their quirks that annoy their respective partners and how and when they would like to have 'the talk' with their children. The two shared how they treat their children as adults and inform them about life as much as they can. The two find their characters very similar and relatable. 

Surveen and Madhavan also share some relationship goals. Surveen says the red flag in a relationship for her is when her partner isn't involved or give their 100 per cent on their relationship, which need not be because of an 'external reason'. Madhavan, on the other hand, does not believe in celebrating Valentine's Day or Mother's Day or Women's Day and it is fun to watch Surveen argue on that. Madhavan believes that a specific day does not particularly signify your love for a person but Surveen says it is important to have those days so that you can express your love for each other more prominently. 

Watch the video here:

Meanwhile, the series Decouple revolves around a couple, a pulp fiction writer Arya Iyer (played by Madhavan) and a woman entrepreneur who runs a successful business Shruti (played by Surveen Chawla). By the trailer, it looks like the two have fallen out of love and navigating through life as they decide if they should or should not be together anymore. The series is a comedy-drama and the trailer makes it a promising watch. 

Catch the Hardik Mehta directorial Decoupled on Netflix on December 17. The show is created and written by Manu Joseph and is produced by Bombay Fables and Andolan.
