‘Teri Meri…’ pays tribute to 1960s movie legendsMay 29th, 2012 - 2:00 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, May 29 (IANS) Actor Shahid Kapoor, who plays a struggling musician of the 1960s in his forthcoming film “Teri Meri Kahaani,” says that portion is inspired by the superstars of that era - Dev Anand, Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar - and is a tribute to the legendary actors.
“The film talks about three eras - 1910, 1960 and 2012. The era that you are talking about, the 1960s, Dev saab, Mr. Raj Kapoor, Dilip saab, they were the biggest stars. I am playing a character of that time, a struggling musician. So, whatever we have done is inspired by them,” the 31-year-old said here Monday on the sets of “Dance India Dance”.
“Kunal (director Kunal Kohli) wanted to pay a little tribute to them. So, a little bit is inspired from them. I don’t think anybody can do what they have really done,” added Shahid, who stars opposite Priyanka Chopra in the film.
When asked why the two actors took so long to come together for another film after delivering the 2009 hit film “Kaminey”, Priyanka said: “I don’t think Shahid produces films nor do I produce films. Whenever a film is offered to us together, we will do one and we are glad to be doing ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’ because it’s a very special film and we are very happy to have come together for that.”
“Teri Meri Kahaani” also stars Prachi Desai and the film is slated for a June 22 release.
