Shelly Dhar Chopra, who is making her directorial debut with Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, is gearing up for the release of her movie. The film revolves around an enthusiastic father played by Anil Kapoor, who is trying his best to get his daughter essayed by Sonam Kapoor married. Interestingly, during the shooting, marriage was the topic of discussion behind the camera as well.
On Monday, Neerja actor Sonam Kapoor, who tied the knot with long time boyfriend Anand Ahuja last year in May, revealed that her wedding was planned while shooting Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga.
“When we were shooting the film, my wedding was being planned. So no time was wasted as we used to plan my wedding on sets, in between takes. In a way, it was godsend that we did this film together right before the wedding. Otherwise, I don’t know how we would have found the time to meet each other,” Sonam Kapoor said.
Talking about sharing the screen space with her father for the first time, Sonam said that initially she was scared but after the first scene with her father was approved by the director, she calmed down.
“Our relationship on set was very professional. But honestly, I was very scared on the first day. I was very nervous and hadn’t slept the night before. I was very stressed out,” she said.
Produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the film also stars Rajkummar Rao and Juhi Chawla. It is scheuled to release on February 1.
