Plot of the movie
Going by the teaser, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is “the most unexpected romance of the year”. Without revealing much, Sonam has said earlier, “It is a love story, it is a story of a bond between a parent and child. In India, we go through a situation where we have to explain to our parents for our partners.”
At the film’s trailer preview event, Sonam said, “I was very sceptical to do a film with my father. We have been approached for films several times. I said yes to Shelly Chopra (director) as I loved the story and I felt this is the film that dad and I should do together. I was enthusiastic about the film. I trusted the director, she was clear about the film.
“I never found authenticity or idealism in any of the other films. I felt nobody besides me and my father (were apt) to do Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. We are glad to know that we were the first choice of the director,” she added.
