Sonam Kapoor has started shooting for Vidhu Vinod Chopra's next, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. After the Sanjay Dutt biopic, starring Ranbir Kapoor and directed by Rajkumar Hirani, this is Sonam's second outing with Chopra. 

But that is not what makes the film so special. If the name of the film reminds you of Anil Kapoor's hit song from 1942 A Love Story, let us tell you something that's sure to excite you even further — for the first time ever, Sonam will share screen space with her dad Anil. Yup, in a career spanning 10 years, this is the first time the Neerja actor will face the camera with her dad.

Thanking Chopra, Sonam took to social media to share the news, saying, "Ek Ladki ko dekha! My first shot with my father after 10 years in this industry! Thank you @shellychopradharfor writing something compelling enough for me to take the plunge and thank you #vidhuvinodchopra for making it happen!".


Helmed by debutante director Shelly Chopra Dhar, Vidhu Vinod Chopra's sister, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga went on floors last week in Patiala. "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," Sonam was quoted by a fan club on Twitter.

Anil, too, took to Twitter to share his excitement about the film. "This has to be serendipity! We started shooting for #ELKDTAL yday & I woke up to this song on TV today! Never had I imagined that one day I'd work with the same filmmaker on a film that pays tribute to this epic song written by @Javedakhtarjadu & composed by #RDBurman #Surreal", he wrote.

Apart from Sonam and Anil, the film also stars Madhu Malti as Anil's mother and Rajkummar Rao as Sonam's love interest, along with Juhi Chawla.

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is slated to release on October 12, 2018.
