Director Kunal Kohli has revealed that he has tried to ape late filmmaker Vijay Anand’s style while shooting the song “Uff” for his forthcoming film Teri Meri Kahaani.
“One of the best directors of the 1960 era was Vijay Anand and I have tried to shoot the song like a tribute to him. Shot it like the way he used to shoot the songs, like in ‘Teesri Manzil’ and films like that,” said Kohli.
“So I have given it that flavour of music and the shooting style as if it’s a Vijay Anand song,” he added.
Teri Meri Kahaani, starring Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra, is a love story that spans across three eras 1910, 1960 and 2012. It is slated for release June 22.
Shahid says the word ‘Uff’ is very typical of the 1960 era.
“‘Uff’ I think is a very interesting word. You have heard a lot of ‘uffs’ and ‘yahoo’ in the 1960s,” the 31-year-old said.
The song has been sung by Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan, and composer Wajid of duo Sajid-Wajid, is all praise for them.
“The way he (Sonu) has sung it, I think you’ve just got to hear it to believe it. I feel that in whichever film Sonu or Sunidhi sing for me, that film is complete for me,” Wajid said.
Teri Meri Kahaani will have a UK Premiere at Cineworld, Feltham on 21st June which will be attended by the actors and director of the film.
