"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.
