MUMBAI: ‘Hum Tum’ director Kunal Kohli felt it was high time that his lead stars in ‘Teri Meri Kahani’, i.e. Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor, were cast together in a romantic film.
"Priyanka hasn’t done too many love stories. I felt that it was about time we bring her and Shahid together. I feel that there are so many stories about love to be told and one lifetime is just not enough to do that. Just like Yashji, I too want to keep coming back with films belonging to this genre on a regular basis," said Kohli to the press.
Happy with chemistry between Shahid and Priyanka, the director goes on to explain the story of the film, "Shahid is playing three different roles in the film across eras. He is playing a strong Muslim character Javed which is a first for him."
Also starring Neha Sharma and Prachi Desai, ‘Teri Meri Kahani’, with music by Sajid-Wajid, releases on June 22.
