Kunal Kohli apes late Vijay Anand`s style in `Uff`
Mumbai: Director Kunal Kohli has revealed that he has tried to ape late filmmaker Vijay Anand`s style while shooting the song "Uff" for his forthcoming film ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’.
"One of the best directors of the 1960 era was Vijay Anand and I have tried to shoot the song like a tribute to him. Shot it like the way he used to shoot the songs, like in `Teesri Manzil` and films like that," said Kohli.
"So I have given it that flavour of music and the shooting style as if it`s a Vijay Anand song," he added.
‘Teri Meri Kahaani’, starring Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra, is a love story that spans across three eras 1910, 1960 and 2012. It is slated for release June 22.
Shahid says the word `Uff` is very typical of the 1960 era.
"`Uff` I think is a very interesting word. You have heard a lot of `uffs` and `yahoo` in the 1960s," the 31-year-old said.
The song has been sung by Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan, and composer Wajid of duo Sajid-Wajid, is all praise for them.
"The way he (Sonu) has sung it, I think you`ve just got to hear it to believe it. I feel that in whichever film Sonu or Sunidhi sing for me, that film is complete for me," Wajid said.
