The makers of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga are all geared up to release the much-awaited title track of the flick on Tuesday. Anil Kapoor is all set to recreate the same magic after 25 years in the song. It was 1994 film 1942: A Love Story where, Anil Kapoor and Manisha Koirala featured in the romantic song ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’.
Anil Kapoor, who will be seen playing Sonam Kapoor’s father in the film is also excited to once again recreate the same song in the current film after 25 years. The song is very close to the actor and is one of his all-time favourites. The makers of the film along with Anil Kapoor will launch the song on 8th Jan.
‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ features Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao & Juhi Chawla in lead roles and Regina Cassandra, Madhumalti Kapoor, Brijendra Kala, Seema Pahwa, Abdul Quadir Amin and Sara Arjun in pivotal roles.
The film will be first on-screen collaboration of father-daughter duo. Shelly Chopra Dhar, the director of the film told PTI, “Being a father and daughter as they are, it was a perfect combination for me and fortunately they agreed on the script. It’s their first film together. They are both professionals and great actors. Somewhere it helps if you are father and daughter in real life. It definitely helped the film’’.
Without divulging much about the film, which its trailer suggests is a commentary on homosexuality and how a family deals with it, the director said the story has multiple layers to it. “I don’t want to say anything more because I want you all to enjoy the film. It’s a story about love and relationship’’, she said.
Fox Star Studio presents ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and is directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar. This film also marks as a debut film of Shelly Chopra Dhar. The film is slated to release on 1st February 2019.
