Kunal Kohli is continuing to be cool despite the dwindling equation between Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra. As the history goes, both were a couple till some time back and though there was no admittance on the part of either of the two, their togetherness and subsequent break-up made a lot of noise. It was during the same time that Kunal Kohli was in talks with the couple to feature in his most ambitious film till date Teri Meri Kahaani. However with all logistics in place and the sets waiting for the stars to step in, the filmmaker decided to take a huge risk and continued with the couple.
“It could well have been a walk of thorns for Kunal but he just went ahead,” informs a source, “Everything about the film including the script and various looks of Shahid and Priyanka had been locked and there was no going back. Meanwhile Kunal was convinced that the changed equation between the youngsters won’t put him in any lurch. He didn’t have to go and have any specific conversation with the duo, he just continued with the flow and once there was confirmation from both the actors about being on board, he concentrated on putting together the film instead of worrying about the liaison between them.”
Thankfully for Kunal, his film emerged unscathed once the principal shoot was through and now that the on-screen chemistry between his pair is making heads turn; he is elated with the decision that he took.
“I didn’t face any hindrance during work and that was good enough for me”, says Kunal, “Shahid as well as Priyanka were very professional on the sets and that helped. Honestly speaking, beyond that whatever happened off the sets was their own problem and I was not inclined to poke my nose into it.”
Guess we would have to talk to Shahid and Priyanka to get those stories.
