Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is a special movie for a number of reasons. Those who have seen Anil Kapoor and Juhi Chawala act together might like to call it ‘nostalgia’, while fans of Sooraj Barjatya’s family movies would love to see father-daughter duo Anil-Sonam together 😛
Here are a few facts about the movie that all Bollywood fans should know:
1) The title of the film has been borrowed from RD Burman’s song of the same name that featured in the 1994 movie- 1942: A Love Story, which interestingly had Anil Kapoor in the lead opposite Manisha Koirala. The film was directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, which brings us to our next point.
2) The 2019 film has been directed by none other than Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s sister Shelly Chopra Dhar. Notably, this is Shelly Chopra’s debut directorial flick.
3) Courtesy of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, fans will witness the duo of father-daughter, Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, together for the first time on the silver screen.
4) The film was initially supposed to release in October of 2018; however, owing to the untimely demise of actress Sridevi, who happens to be Anil Kapoor’s sister-in-law, the film’s shoot was halted mid-way. Now, the film has been set for a 1st February, 2019 release.
5) Actor Rajkummar Rao, who is usually known for playing intense roles, is reportedly playing a homosexual character in the film, states a report in The Times of India. Although the film’s plot has not been made public yet, one can safely assume from the teasers and posters that Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is going to deal with a number of issues pertaining to relationships and infidelity!
