With Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra starring together for the first time in Anjaana Anjaani, there is bound to be curiosity about the film. And adding to director Siddharth Anand’s nervousness is the fact that his forthcoming film has only two characters!

Siddharth Anand says, “The expectations are high and frankly, I’m scared. It looks like a romcom. But it’s actaully a love story. I’ve made my riskiest film.”

Commenting on what Anjaana Anjaani is about, he says, “It’s a very real look at love. There’s no third character. So, we needed two actors who could hold the audience’s attention without props and a supporting cast.”

Siddharth says that the film won’t work if Ranbir and Priyanka’s performances don’t click. “When Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge released, you wanted to feel and touch Raj and Simran. That’s how I want audiences to feel about Ranbir and Priyanka.”

Anjaana Anjaani has been scripted by Advaita Kala. “She wrote the chick-lit Almost Single. I asked her to develop a story by my wife Mamta. Ranbir and Priyanka had no reference points for their performance in my film, which is about a few days two strangers spend together,” adds Siddharth Anand.
