Mausam, written and directed by Pankaj Kapoor stars Shahid Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor adorn the lead roles. Mausam, which was earlier expected to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival had to be cancelled just a day before the scheduled premières due to delays with the film. The makers of Mausam have been facing obstacles since the year 2010 for various reasons. The film will find Shahid Kapoor in a brand new avatar.
Shahid Kapoor as Harry Sq Leader Harrindar Singh: Fondly known as Harry, Harrindar Singh is a mischievous, youthful and a clever boy at the peak of adolescence. As he grows up, Harry gradually transforms into a man with deep values and bold qualities. The charming Harry turns out to be an officer in the Indian air force.
Sonam Kapoor as Aayat: Aayat is beautiful, innocent, vulnerable and charming. When the narration begins, Aayat is shown as a scared and timid young girl who finds herself lost in a new place with fear that she carries from her past. Having gone through a lot of pain and hardship, Aayat blooms into a strong, beautiful, passionate and a versatile woman.
Story: Mausam is a passionate love story and covers four different age groups of the protagonists – Harry and Aayat played by Shahid Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor, respectively.
In the first season, you see a young adolescent boy (Shahid Kapoor) hailing from Punjab, gets attracted to a young Kashmiri girl (Sonam Kapoor). As years pass by, the soft attraction becomes stronger and develops into love in the second season. In season three, the lovers realise the depth of their love for each other in the hours of separation. In the fourth and final season of Mausam, their love wins and the two love birds come together. However, that comes with a sacrifice.
