Teri Baaton Mei…: A romance btw human & robot with feelings

What happens when a robot falls in love with a human? Actors Shahid Kapoor and Kriti Sanon reveal details about their upcoming film that explores this concept and what made them say yes to it, besides other things.

With Artificial Intelligence and robotics engineering penetrating their roots in every facet of life, these concept have now charmed Bollywood as well. So much so that Shahid Kapoor and Kriti Sanon’s upcoming film ‘Teri Baaton Mein Aise Uljha Jiya’ revolves around them. In its one-of-a-kind innovation, Kapoor will be seen romancing a robot (played by Sanon). But unlike other robots seen in the bygone era, who were devoid of emotions, the trailer shows Sanon endowed with them.


At a press conference in Delhi, the actors divulged details about their upcoming film.


On playing a robot

Sanon revealed that when was narrated with the story, an excitement engulfed her. Besides the fact that the role has been an unchartered territory for her, it is something that is completely different from the real her.


“This role is very away from me. I am completely opposite to a robot. I am extremely clumsy as a person. I can fall on a flat surface wearing flats. I am also messy. However a robot is smarter than humans and away from clumsiness. So it was interesting to play this character that was close to be a human being but yet cannot be called a human in real sense,” she added.


On the concept of the film

While the idea of a human falling in love with a robot may sound unrealistic in real life, Kapoor stated that the film in no way is trying to show reality. He instead said that that idea is to give a reason for people to experience things that may not be true.


“Years ago when Mr India was released, no one questioned how if ever a bracelet can lead people to go invisible from the face of the earth. Everyone loved the film’s concept and storyline. Stories shown in films should look convincing and sometimes makers show unrealitic things in films so that people do not get bored seeing only the reality,” he shared.


On returning to romantic films

Teri Baaton Mein Aise Uljha Jiya marks a comeback for Kapoor in the romantic films. Though the actor has shot back to back film every year, he kept away from doing romantic films, something that he said was not 'out of choice'. When asked what kept him away for so long, he said that he was not getting enough opportunities in this category of films.


“Sometimes actors get similar kinds of roles. But I wanted to do something different. The word ‘different’ defines this film in every sense. I had never imagined that such a role would be ever offered to me. Neither did I knew that I would like such a script. So, it’s the concept that led me say yes to the film,” he stated.


Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya is set to hit the cinemas on February 9. Helmed by Amit Joshi and Aradhana Sah, the film also stars Dimple Kapadia and Dharmendra in prominent roles.
