BOLLYWOOD: If rumours are to be believed, Anil Kapoor and Sonam will finally be sharing screen space more than ten years after Sonam’s debut in Bollywood.
As per the latest reports, the duo will be starring in a film titled ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga,’ which is a classic hit from Anil Kapoor and Manisha Koirala’s 1942: A Love Story.
The film will be directed by Shelly Chopra and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, and will star Juhi Chawla.
“All that is known currently is that Anil and Sonam will play father-daughter and Juhi Chawla will play her mother. Rajkummar Rao will play Sonam’s love interest,” said a source.
Last year, Vidhu Vinod Chopra signed this casting coup of sorts with Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga.
However, extreme silence is being maintained over the film’s details as cast has signed a NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) with Vidhu Vinod Chopra. However, Sonam Kapoor recently announced that she will begin shooting for Vidhu’s next in March or April.
Meanwhile, Anil Kapoor told a leading daily, “First of all, it’s too early to talk about the film. Plus, I have signed an NDA with Vidhu Vinod so I cannot say a single word without proper permissions as I will be breaching the contract.”
He further added, “These days, everyone is becoming protective about their content. Stakes are so high and with so much media and social media around us, everything gets out even when we want to keep it a surprise. So everyone is careful because they don’t want to affect their film. And it’s also good in a way.”
