Uday Chopra Says Movie 'Pyaar Impossible' Is All About Outward Appearances
According to actor Uday Chopra his movie 'Pyaar Impossible' is all about outward appearances. Uday plays a geek in forthcoming flick for which he has turned scriptwriter too, and he says the film is all about how the looks of the lead characters impact their lives.
Uday said,"The look is very important for the film because it's all about outward appearances. 'Pyaar Impossible' is about a guy who looks like this (a geek) and a girl who looks like that (a star). Will they ever be able to get together? So the whole film rests on looks.”
Explaining what prompted him to portray the characters in such a way, he said, “So we thought let's have characters who look so unachievable that a girl like this would never look at him and a guy like this would never be able to achieve the girl.”
Uday also revealed that he kept Priyanka Chopra in mind when he wrote the good-looking female lead part.
"When I first thought of the subject of a beauty and a geek, I knew that this is a kind of character Priyanka would be able to play brilliantly. She was in my mind while I was sketching the character," he said.
He admits that the story has some slice of his real life experiences, but clarifies that it's neither autobiographical nor inspired by international reality TV show "Beauty and the Geek".
Uday said,"It's not really autobiographical. Everyone, mostly in his or her school or college days, falls for someone unachievable, whom they can't express their feelings to. It happened with me as well. I borrowed a few of those moments but the main storyline is fresh and the idea didn't come to me from the reality show 'Beauty and the Geek'.”
The idea of ‘Pyaar Impossible’ was lying dormant in Uday's mind for a long time and after ‘Dhoom 2’, he decided to pen the story as he had some free time.
Uday said,"I didn't know that I would ever make a film out of it. I had the idea so I started writing the story. There was nothing else to do except a few behind-the-scene jobs, which didn't take much of my time.”
Uday on being questioned on not taking the director reins in his hands said, "My primary goal was to make a movie with the best of my ability. It was not that I have to make the film, I have to write it, I have to produce it and I have to direct it. So at that point I thought its better I don't direct it because I had to focus on too many other things."
Uday on co-star Priyanka said, "It was a great experience working with her. I was really apprehensive at first because I had never worked with her before and didn't know her well also. Once we started the film, I was not only surprised but also genuinely bowled over by her. She is not only a good actor but also a great team player."
The movie will hit the theatres on Jan 8 in 2010.
