Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra will be romancing each other once again in Kunal Kohli’s forthcoming Teri Meri Kahaani.

The film, set between 1910 and 2012, is about soul mates who take three births. Shahid and Priyanka play three different roles from each period. Shahid plays the Muslim poet and loverboy Javed from 1910, a struggling musician called Govind in 1960, and Krish in 2012.

Shahid’s mother, Neelima Azeem, claims to love him the most as Javed. She says, “When I saw the promos, I loved all three looks, but I am excited about him playing Javed, as it is a first for him (playing a Muslim character), which is exciting.”

She explains, “It is not just about playing a Muslim character, but Javed is an attractive, flamboyant man and Shahid has performed the role brilliantly. His look in the 1960s is cute and innocent while the one in 2012 is crazy. The film looks promising.”

Priyanka Chopra will be seen playing a Punjabi kudi called Rukhsar in 1910, an actress called Radha in 1960, and a modern woman called Aradhana in 2012.
