I believe in love and have faith in it: Shahid

Mumbai: Shahid Kapoor, who will be next seen in Kunal Kohli`s love saga `Teri Meri Kahani` has been linked to numerous Bollywood actresses including his co-star Priyanka Chopra, after his break-up with Kareena Kapoor. But the actor feels that it is difficult to find a love story in real life.

"Obviously I believe in love and have faith in it. I think love is the most beautiful thing in the world..it makes the world go round. I think everybody is eventually looking for love..but it is difficult to find one complete love story in real," Shahid told reporters here on Thursday evening.

"Through this film (`Teri Meri Kahani`) may be this is our way of escaping from reality and trying to show three different love stories and believing in romance. I think the most exciting thing in this movie is that there are three different love stories in it spread across three different generations. It is exciting to see how the journey of two lovers unfolds in three time spans-1910, 1960 and 2012," he said.

The 31-year-old star was dating Kareena when they started filming for Ken Ghosh`s 2004 film `Fida`. They were going steady until they separated during the making of `Jab We Met` in 2007. Another strong buzz was about his alleged relationship with Priyanka Chopra. They met on the sets of Vishal Bhardwaj`s `Kaminey` and had hit it off instantly. Their sizzling chemistry on reel was quite opposite to their on-an-off relationship, which seemed volatile.

Shahid was also linked to Vidya Balan during `Kismet Connection`. Whether this hook-up was for real or just a gimmick is not yet known. This was followed by alleged affairs with tennis sensation Sania Mirza, Bipasha Basu, Anushka Sharma and the latest being Nargis Fakhri of `Rockstar` fame. The only relationship that Shahid was quite open about was with Kareena.

Even his alleged ex-girlfriend Priyanka Chopra feels love makes the world go round. "I believe in love.. it may sound cliched but it is true that love makes the world go round. There are lot of people whom I love the most, the list is not that long, but it starts with my family," Priyanka said. "I think romance has to go beyond flowers and etc, it is cliched… and they is no fun anymore. And like Shahid said it is important to smile and be happy in love. Just flowers don`t do anything anymore," she said.

After creating magic on silver screen with `Kaminey` and now `Teri Meri Kahani` both Shahid and Priyanka hope to work again together. "She is one of the finest actresses and it is always a pleasure working with her, I hope we get the opportunity to work together again," Shahid said. On her part, Priyanka says, "We have always worked together very well as co-actors.. the way this film has got response and `Kaminey` had also got.. I am sure we will really work together in the future if something interesting comes."
