If songs like 'Mukhtasar', 'Humse Pyaar Karle Tu' and now 'Allah Jaane' are any indication, it is clear that the ex-lovers Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra have worked on ensuring that they pretty much come across as the love birds in love on screen at least. The results are there to be seen as both actors seem to have justified Kunal Kohli's trust in them, what with their chemistry being up for display.
However the filmmaker insists that everything that one sees on screen had to be made perfect in the script first.
"This so-called chemistry has to be developed much before actors come in front of the camera," says Kunal who can be credited for some crackling chemistry he brought alive between his actors in films like HUM TUM and FANAA, "It is also the function of the script because in order to get those lovey-dovey encounters come alive on screen, you first need to get them right on paper."
Kunal worked on that by writing the characters of Shahid and Priyanka in such a manner that they turned out to be extremely endearing.
"The thing is that today's ever demanding audience wants something different from its actors all the time. They want Shahid to do different things and push the envelope. This was the demand of TERI MERI KAHAANI as well as we are indeed doing something altogether different in the film. That made me zero in on Shahid," divulges Kunal, "As for Priyanka then well, she hasn't done too many love stories; especially a film like TERI MERI KAHAANI which is an out and out romantic entertainer. I felt that it was about time we bring her and Shahid together in a quintessential music love story like this."
Also starring Neha Sharma and Prachi Desai in principal roles, TERI MERI KAHAANI with music by Sajid-Wajid releases all over on 22nd June.
