Shahid-Priyanka starrer is titled Teri Meri Kahani or Muqtasar?

This one is turning out to be one nameless love story. Even though Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra are happy to be serenading each other, no one knows yet how to address their love story. Okay, there may still be good doubts around whether the ‘kabhi-haan-kabhi-naa’ couple is together again or not but when it comes to their reel life rendezvous, the confusion is no less.

“Name of their next film is yet undecided”, says a source, “Even though their film went on floors many months ago, there have been quite a few titles like Janam Janam Ka Saath Hamara Tumhara as well as it’s shorter version Janam Janam Ka Saath thrown around. After much speculation it seemed that Teri Meri Kahani was the final title. However now another title, Muqtasar, has also emerged.”

An Urdu word, Muqtasar stands for ‘brief/concise’ and while it sounds entirely different from Teri Meri Kahani as well as Janam Janam Ka Saath, it also ends up making the audience wonder what really is Kunal’s film all about which is being pitched as an epic love story told over different eras.

“Looks like this is a new promotional tactic as well which has time and again worked for the audience. Yash Raj Films started it all when they kept the title of their films close to their chest for ages before revealing it. It worked really well for them in case of Veer Zaara“, says an expert, “Later the makers of Jab We Met and Omkara too selected the respective title through an audience poll. With different names being thrown around, it keeps the curiosity on for the film and makers too have the choice to pick the best based on the buzz it creates.”

This was most evident in case the upcoming dramatic thriller starring Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji. While quite a few titles were thrown around during last 7-8 months, the one that really caught on with one and all was Dhuaan. However, in case of this film, the makers threw a googly by revealing the final title as Talaash. One wonders whether same would hold good for the Shahid-Priyanka film as well.

“Well, all I can say is that we haven’t finalised a title yet”, says Kunal Kohli. As expected, he refused to divulge whether it would be either Teri Meri Kahani, Muqtasar, Janam Janam Ka Saath or something entirely different.

The ‘saga’ continues. Pun intended!
