'Pyaar Impossible' not a classic: Priyanka

Priyanka Chopra says Pyaar Impossible is one of the sweetest and simplest films she’s done. And she doesn’t want people going in for the movie expecting a classic like Mughal-e-Azam.

“Please don’t look for any complications in Pyaar Impossible because there aren’t any,” Priyanka said.

“It’s not necessary that all love stories have to be complicated. So many times it is the simplicity factor that comes out trumps and Pyaar Impossible is one such film.”

“Please don’t start hunting for a classic tale a la Mughal-e-Azam here because that was never the intent,” Priyanka said.

“We wanted to make a feel good fun film that can be identified by the teens and youth and tells their story while keeping the entertainment value intact. One should just enter the theatre with a bag full of popcorn and enjoy those couple of hours,” she added.

She is paired opposite Uday Chopra, for whom Pyaar Impossible is a comeback of sorts. The actor, who made his debut nine years ago with Mohabbatein (2000), was last seen in Dhoom 2 (2006).

Pyaar Impossible is the story of a geek called Abhay (Uday), who falls in love with the most beautiful girl in the campus, Alisha (Priyanka). While most people believe this love story would be impossible, some also wonder if fate would get the two together and if this ‘pyaar’ would indeed turn out to be ‘possible’

“That’s where the real sweet elements about the film come in because the girl truly believes that geek or no geek; it’s the intrinsic good qualities of one’s own self that make people fall in love with you. On the other hand, the boy believes that good looks do matter. This is what kick starts the entire point of view of possibility of love in contrasting individuals,” Priyanka explained.

This is why she is particularly fond of the title song where she is dressed as a geek in a manner similar to that of Uday’s character in the film. With spectacles on, unkempt hair, loose T-shirt and baggy shorts, she follows the geek look to the T, as instructed by Uday who challenges her that she can never find a guy looking like a geek.

“I take this challenge while being quite sure that men would look deeper into me than just the looks. All of this is conveyed through the title song, which has been picturised in such a sweet manner. Do I eventually get a guy for myself? Well, watch out for that in the film,” she said.
