Kunal Kohli’s upcoming romantic offering “Teri Meri Kahaani”, starring Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra, is set in three time periods — 1910, 1960 and 2012. Each has its own flavour.
Similar is the case with Vikram Bhatt’s “Dangerous Ishq”, the story of which spans over 500 years. Though said to be based on the theme of reincarnation, the movie will see actors Rajniesh Duggal and Karisma Kapoor in varied looks as the story travels from one era to another.
Bhatt, who went back to the 15th century for “Dangerous Ishq”, says it took a good amount of team effort to shape up the film with the authenticity for each era intact.
In the recent past, the transition in the looks of characters and the ambience have been portrayed in films like “Veer Zara”, “Bachna Ae Haseeno”, “Actionn Replay”, “Love Aaj Kal”, “Mausam”, “7 Khoon Maaf” and “Rockstar”.
Filmmakers, who chose to deal with the subject of reincarnation in movies like “Madhumati”, “Prem”, “Milan”, “Kudrat”, “Karan Arjun” and “Om Shanti Om”, are also posed with the challenge of showcasing different time zones.
Bhatt insists the idea of going back and forth in time is not distracting for the audience.
“Whether there are three eras or five eras in a story… one film has one story, and that shouldn’t be disjointed,” he added.
Are you looking forward to seeing Karisma Kapoor in Dangerous Ishq?
