What’s your definition of love?
Divya Khosla Kumar- I will talk about the film. The film is a pure love story and it is all about finding your soul mate and destiny.
Pulkit Samrat- Love is something when you can be yourself with that person. Like there are no walls between the two, the way you are with your families with all your flaws and negatives.
Yami Gautam- Love for me is defined by the person whom you fall in love with. He makes the ordinary things become special that is the best feeling.
What was your reaction when you were approached for the film?
Yami- I got a call from Bhushan sir (Bhushan Kumar) and when I asked him what the story line was, he said no I will not tell you, that’s not how my wife likes to work. She will narrate it to you. I was extremely excited after the narration. She is very passionate about filmmaking. She has the sensitivity to make a love story and she has done it beautifully.
You will be seen first time in an intense love story?
Pulkit -Yes that is why I took up the role. I have grown up watching such kind of films where hero and the heroine romance around a tree, walking with the horse or hero being shirtless. I was very excited about all this and also the story was beautiful.
Was Pulkit and Yami the first choice?
Divya - Pulkit was my first choice. I cast him because I see a certain kind of sadness in his eyes. Also, you know both of them have good potential. I have presented them like never before.
Pulkit - First thing she told us I promise, I will present you guys like no one has done it before and I think she has done more than that. I love the response we have got from everyone and especially from you guys.
Your off-screen chemistry has been talked more than your onscreen one. Do you guys agree?
Pulkit - I take it as a compliment for the on screen chemistry. We just worked a lot and it really doesn’t matter what people say. I really don’t pay attention to things that really don’t deserve it.
Recently, Pulkit made a statement that the off screen chemistry was created for promotions. How did you react to that Yami?
Pulkit- Why are you asking her? Is she my spokesperson?
Yami- What reaction do you want, how much reaction should I give?
The film is pitched as classic love story. Which is the classic love story for you guys?
Pulkit - Mughal-E-Azam and Madhubala are my favourites.
Yami - That’s very awkward, you can check my earlier interviews, I have said Mughal- E- Azam first. The thing is that the film is timeless and it remains untouched.
Where does an item number fit in a classic love tale?
Pulkit and Yami- It’s not an item number, it’s a dance number. It was a surprise for everyone.
Divya- We were thinking to cast any other heroine but couldn't find anyone, so I did it myself.
What are your plans for Valentine’s Day?
Yami- We all will celebrate the day with each other.
How was it working with Rishi Kapoor?
Pulkit-It was great working with him. He has worked the hardest in the film and he will be the cutest grandfather after the release.
