Shahid Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra on promotion spree of Teri Meri Kahani
Mumbai: Film Makers of Kunal Kohli’s upcoming romantic entertainer Teri Meri Kahaani are working hard to erect extravagant sets to get the reality outlook depicting three love stories in different eras 1910, 1960 and 2012. The film features Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra. Muneesh Sappel, production designer of the film says the sets he has created of different eras for Kunal Kohli’s upcoming film Teri Meri Kahaani are authentic and built up after a lot of research. At the same time, Sappel wants audience to relate to the story instead of focusing on the sets. “We did extensive research and travelled for six months across places where the story is based,” Sappel said.
Sappel says “We had to create all the three eras and ensure that they look authentic. The 1910 era will have Punjab, the 1960 story is set in Mumbai and 2012 in England. We have been authentic and nothing is false. Creating these eras was in a way difficult but the use of VFX made it a bit easier…it really helped us.” He further went on to add “We want the audience to relate to the story and not the background. We want them to get attached to the emotions.”
Muneesh is credited for designing sets for Amitabh Bachchan’s Bhootnath, Shahrukh Khan starrer Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Atul Agnihotri’s Hello, among others. In the 1960 story, Shahid plays a struggling music director – Govind and Priyanka is a famous actress – Rukhsar and they once again fall in love in Mumbai. In 2012, the couple falls in love again as Radha and Krish in England. A source says “Creating a 1910 era Punjab was in a way easy like we have had a temple, mosque, market, a small village, brick houses etc. In 1960 (Mumbai), we have shown trams, chawl, guest houses, old studios and old cinema houses. Creating Mumbai took more time. In 2012 one would see modern times with ancient style of architecture.”
