Pick up any lover of Hollywood romcoms and he is bound to state that Woody Allen is one of his favourite filmmakers. The maker of YOU WILL MEET A TALL DARK STRANGER, VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA, EVERYONE SAYS I LOVE YOU and many more films has influenced/inspired quite a few story tellers across the globe and first timer Shakun Batra is no exception to them. Though for his debut directorial affair EK MAIN AUR EKK TU he hasn't copied Woody Allen's style as-is, Shakun does acknowledge that deep inside, he aspires to tell stories in the same manner.

"I am a big fan of Woody Allen and personally I enjoy movies which are about characters, conversations and the inherent humour that comes with it," says Shakun, "We have tried to keep a similar kind of humour in EK MAIN AUR EKK TU as well which is not meant to be an intellectual take on affairs. It is about how people talk in real life and bring that on screen. Kareena Kapoor and Imran Khan too were mighty kicked about this approach since this was a new kind of narrative for them as well."

However he refuses to call EMAET as a Bollywood take on Woody Allen's films. "He is way too talented and senior for me to start imitating him in my very first film. He is a genius and I would never be able to match up to him," he says.

We would know once we catch the film on 10th February.
