In the wake of an amazing star cast Anil Kapoor and Juhi Chawla are re-uniting after 11 years on screen for a film which is produced by Anil’s long time collaborate Vidhu Vinod Chopra. Title of the film is ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekh Toh Aisa Laga’ which is based on a song from 1942 – A Love Story, directed by Vidhu Chopra starring Anil Kapoor in the lead. Star cast gets even more exciting as Sonam Kapoor and Rajkumar Rao are also joining in the film. Venture will be directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar and will release on October 12.
Shelly Chopra will be making her directorial debut with this film and it will be produced by both Vidhu Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani. Last film Vidhu Chopra produced was Wazir directed by Bejoy Nambiar starring Farhan Akhtar and Amitabh Bachchan in the lead roles. Chopra is producer of one of the biggest blockbusters in the history of Indian cinema by the name of PK and 3 Idiots. Chopra is also a prolific director of some classics like Parinda, Eklavya and hence he is a producer with creative inputs who would not green light the film merely on the blind faith of a director.
Anil and Sonam are working for the first time together in a film and Raj has not worked with either Sonam or Anil before. Raj Rao is one of the most dependable actors in Hindi cinema today and hence his signed film gets a certain gravitas of content. As the title suggests, this one is going to be a romantic film and Raj will play Sonam’s love interest while Anil is to Juhi Chawla’s character. Shotting of the film has not gone on floors as of yet but the film is highly anticipated as Anil and Vidhu have done some commendable work in the past and are re-uniting after decades.
