The popular father-daughter duo of Bollywood, Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor, is all set to work together for the first time in Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s sister Shelly Chopra directorial debut film, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga.

Reportedly, the film has gone on floor this week in Patiala with Anil Kapoor. However, Sonam Kapoor will join him soon after the current promotions of her upcoming film, PadMan.

The first time director, Shelly Chopra, confirmed this news to a leading daily, saying, “I just came back from a meeting with Anil and he is like a kid, extremely excited about his role. His character sports a look that hasn’t been seen on him in a long time. We will be shooting at a family house in Patiala, which is a perfect setting for the film. I am shooting entirely at real locations as I want the film to develop as organically as possible. We can’t wait to start rolling now.”

She further added that, “Anil is also really looking forward to the outing. While I have all his costumes in place, he insisted on bringing his own stuff too.”

According to sources, Bareilly Ki Barfi star Rajkummar Rao will be playing Sonam’s love interest in the film and Anil Kapoor will be seen opposite Juhi Chawla.

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is a hit song from Anil Kapoor’s film 1942: A Love Story, which was directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
