Mumbai: Actor Shahid Kapoor, who has so far used the sarson ka khet-filled Punjab twice to romance actresses on the big screen in Jab We Met and Mausam, and was set to score a hat trick with Priyanka Chopra in Kunal Kohli’s untitled romantic flick, will now not shoot any films in Punjab, at least for some time.
Kohli, who was previously confident of finding a new way to shoot his romantic flick, earlier titled Teri Meri Kahani, in Punjab, is now re-writing his film’s script, removing any references to the state.
According to a source, Kohli took the decision after watching Mausam. He said, “Kunal was going to shoot in Punjab, despite Jab We Met.
But then Mausam came along. Apart from what would have been a similar setting, both Mausam and Kohli’s films have a Hindu-Muslim love story at its core.
In Mausam, Kapoor played a Hindu boy, who fell in love with a Muslim girl, and in Kohli’s film, he will act as a Muslim boy whose love interest is a Hindu girl.
When contacted, Kohli said, “The idea is to explore new territory. What’s the point of going to the same area?”
