The actors will dress up and enact like as Nargis-Raj Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna-Mumtaaz, Shahrukh-Kajol, Devanand-Hema Malini and Amitabh-Rekha.
Kumar told DNA, “Divyanka and I tried our best to do justice and to re-create the chemistry which has been portrayed by the iconic couples of the Bollywood industry. We hope to bring back the subtlety and purity of romance which existed during the old times.”
“I had a great time shooting for my favourite song Pyar Hua Ikraar Hua. It was a moment that would be very difficult for me to forget, the one where I am in the exact look and feel of the actor (Raj Kapoor) I have looked up to all my life,” he added.
Getting a chance to portray her favourite actress and idol, Hema Malini, Tripathi said, “The sequence is surely a great addition to my CV. I got the chance to look and act like the actresses whom I have grown up admiring all my life.”
”I had a great time dressing up like Mumtazji and Nargisji but my favourite dance sequence was the Hemaji and Devanandji song Pal Bhar Ke Liye, where I am wearing a western outfit and have very short hair. We have tried to create a romantic atmosphere for our audience which is apt for this monsoon weather and hope that our viewers enjoy it.”
