Behind the Scenic Flights: Tabu Kareena and Kriti’s Unique Air Hostess Training for ‘Crew’


New Delhi: The countdown is on, and with only a couple of days to go until the premiere, the hotly anticipated film ‘Crew’ featuring stars Tabu, Kareena Kapoor Khan, and Kriti Sanon is soaring to new heights of public excitement. The film promises a glimpse behind the curtains of the airline industry, with a humorous and dramatic twist that has captured the imagination of cinema-goers since the release of its highly engaging trailers and musical highlights.

Army of fans eagerly awaits the chance to see the trio’s sensational performance as air hostesses, a profession often glamorized yet seldom explored in depth on the big screen. The allure of the high-flying profession combined with the commitment demonstrated by the lead actors has generated a fervent buzz.

As the wait for the film winds down, revelations about what went on behind the scenes have captivated audiences. The creative minds behind ‘Crew’, writers Mehul Suri and Nidhi Mehra, shed light on the elaborate preparation undertaken by the actresses to flesh out their roles authentically. They divulged that the production enlisted the expertise of former cabin crew members, who were instrumental in coaching the stars on set.

“They had former cabin crew members on set for a few days to help with authenticity. Tabu, Kareena, and Kriti paid close attention, asking questions and ensuring accuracy in their portrayal through constant communication with the team,” elaborated Mehul and Nidhi. This attention to detail has not gone unnoticed, and the actresses’ dedication has kindled higher expectations for the film.

‘Crew’ takes the audience to the skies in a story that promises laughter, drama, and perhaps even a few heart tugging moments. Helmed by director Rajesh A. Krishnan, the film is a production marvel brought forth by the collaboration between the powerhouse studios, Balaji Telefilms and Anil Kapoor Film & Communications Network. It is slated for a theatrical release on March 29th, 2024, marking what may be one of the most highly anticipated openings of the year.

The hype transcends just the celebrity power of the film’s leading ladies. The portrayal of the intricacies of air hostesses’ lives, often glamorized but less understood, raises intrigue. Each look into ‘Crew’, be it through a trailer snapshot or promotional material, has shown that the meticulous training of Tabu, Kareena, and Kriti has imbued their characters with a palpable sense of realism.

The training involved detailed coaching by industry veterans who have clocked countless air miles in the quite literal aisles of aircraft. The nuanced gestures, the particular jargon, the posture and mannerisms befitting the most graceful cabin crew—all have been observed and absorbed by the actresses. As a result, they bring to the screen a performance that is not just skin deep but knowledgeable and considerate of the profession they are portraying.

While the charm of star-studded casts is often enough to guarantee box office success, ‘Crew’ is doubling down on authenticity, setting it apart in a landscape often criticized for surface-level storytelling. It offers not just the chance to enjoy the actresses we know and admire but an opportunity to appreciate the often-overlooked nuances of an air hostess’s work life.

As March 29th draws near, the anticipation only grows stronger. With every revelation about the care taken to develop these roles, audiences are assured that ‘Crew’ is no mere flight of fancy, but a tale crafted with attention, respect for the profession, and a touch of moviemaking magic. The stakes are set high, and all eyes will be on the silver screen as ‘Crew’ prepares to take off into the annals of cinematic history.
