Looks like the adage of 'life coming back full circle' indeed holds true for Shahid Kapoor. He enjoyed a huge rom-com success in the form of JAB WE MET soon after he broke up with Kareena Kapoor. Now that is hoping for another smash success to bring him back in the reckoning in a big way, his pairing with Priyanka Chopra (another ex-girlfriend) could well prove lucky in TERE MERI KAHAANI.
"Isn't it a strange coincidence," quips an insider, "From one break up to another, Shahid is going through an eventful innings. What is all the more surprising is that his chemistry with the women he has been in love pretty much reflects on screen as well. He did JAB WE MET with Kareena when they were together and the results were there to be seen. On the other hand even though they were into a 'kabhi haan kabhi naa' relationship status during the beginning of TERI MERI KAHAANI, together Shahid and Priyanka are glowing on screen. Now this is what chemistry is all about."
Though Shahid and Priyanka never went on record about their togetherness, they have been in news ever since the making of KAMINEY. Sparks flew on screen during that film as well even though it was an action thriller. Their romance is said to have fizzled away over a period of time and for the last few months, Shahid has been enjoying his single status.
"In fact his birthday in Goa was pretty much an announcement of his bachelorhood, what with a bevy of beauties being invited for an extended bash. However all of this happened after he had finished shooting for TERI MERI KAHAANI. Looking at the promos of the film, it is clear that he shared great tuning with Priyanka during making of the film at the least," a film buff adds.
Well, going by some 'thanda' response that his pairing fetched in MAUSAM (Sonam Kapoor), CHANCE PE DANCE (Genelia D'Souza), DIL BOLE HADIPPA (Rani Mukerji) and KISMAT KONNECTION (Vidya Balan), one can well hope that it would be back to hot-n-sizzling all over again for Shahid and Priyanka, albeit 'break ke baad'!
