‘Mausam’ – a fable about soul mates and destiny
Mumbai: Peddled as the greatest love story ever told, Bollywood heart-throb Shahid Kapoor claimed that his new release ‘Mausam’ is his career’s toughest.
In Dubai to promote his latest celluloid epic love story, Shahid chose the 123rd floor of the world`s tallest building Burj Khalifa to proclaim that his role in ‘Mausam’ is the most challenging he has ever essayed in his eight year old career.
The film, directed by his father Pankaj Kapur, is a star-crossed tale of a Punjabi Indian Air Force pilot and a Kashmiri girl.
Talking to the media, Shahid said, “It is a film that is closest to my heart. It`s been a long time since I have done an out and out love story — a story that talks about unconditional love.”
"I have done a lot of rom-coms which talk about relationships... But you really don`t get to see a film where you have two people who love each other deeply, but it`s the world that`s tearing them apart," said Kapoor.
Delving more about the plot, Kapoor sounded all convinced that the film featuring Sonam Kapoor as the Kashmiri girl would have cinema buffs sold on the idea of soul-mates and destiny.
"When I signed the film, I went with my heart — you will walk out of the cinemas hoping that the same feeling of love would happen to you as well," he added.
‘Mausam’ releases on September 16.
