Shahid says ‘love stories are most difficult genre to do'

Speaking with reporters at the film's trailer launch event, Shahid said, "I have been missing doing something light and fun definitely but honestly it is the most difficult genre to crack. I listen to ten scripts a month. People don't know that but there is so much to hear. I know people tell me, ‘Aur picture karo (Do more films)’ but it is so difficult to find scripts that you feel that you are going to offer the audience something new. Love stories are the most difficult genre to do."

Then this film (came) and I was like, 'This is it. We have to tell a love story that hasn't been told before.
