Sonam Kapoor took to social media and posted the picture of clap board being used for ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ which says shot number one. Sonam also posted the heartfelt message regarding working with her father Anil Kapoor for the first time in her 10 year career and also thanked Vidhu Vinod Chopra for green lighting the film. Juhi Chawla will be re-uniting with Anil Kapoor after 11 long years and Rajkumar Rao has also joined the star cast of this mega project.
Shooting of the film has just begun in Punjab and producers already have a release date on 12 october clashing with Diljit Dosanjh’s Arjun Patiala that also stars Kriti Sanon in a pivotal role. Ek Ladki Ko Dekha toh Ais Laga borrows it’s title from very famous song of the same name that featured in 1942- a love story written and directed by Vidhu Chopra and starring Anil Kapoor in the lead. 1942 a love story is one of the last albums ever composed by legendary music composer R.D Burman who made this song a classic in the voice of Kumar Sanu which is soulful and unique to this day.
Rajkumar Rao has never worked with either Sonam or Anil Kapoor before in his career and neither has he worked with Juhi Chawla who has been missing from the film for a long time anyways. Juhi and Anil last worked in Nikhil Advani’s multi-starrer Salaam-e-ishq which also starred Salman Khan and Govinda. Salaam-e-ishq was a disaster on the box office and they should hope that eke ladki ko dekha toh aisa laga does not meet with the same fate. Shooting of the film has just begun and it still has a long way to go in the production and will take further more time in the post production before film sees the dark of cinema theater.
