Vidhu Vinod Chopra Productions’ upcoming film starring the father-daughter duo Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor together for the first time goes on floors on Wednesday.

Directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s sister Shelly Chopra Dhar, the film titled Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga will begin shooting in Patiala today.

Taking about her debut film as a director, Shelly Chopra Dhar said in a statement, “Anil is like a kid, extremely excited about his role. His character sports a look that hasn’t been seen on him in a long time. We will be shooting at a family house in Patiala, which is perfect setting for the film. I am shooting entirely at real locations as I want the film to develop as organically as possible. We can’t wait to start rolling now.”

The father-daughter duo, who will be sharing screen space for the first time, is reportedly nervous. Speaking further about Anil Kapoor, the debutante director said, “Anil is also really looking forward to the outing. While I have all his costumes in place, he insisted on bringing his own stuff too.”

Producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra would be soon joining the sets, talking about which Shelly Chopra Dhar said, “Vinod is busy with his next directorial at the moment but I talk to him all the time. He is on top of everything and knows what is happening here.”

The film will also star TV actor Madhu Malti as Anil Kapoor’s mother and Rajkummar Rao as Sonam Kapoor’s love interest. However, since the actor is currently busy shooting for Dinesh Vijan’s horror comedy along with Shraddha Kapoor, he will be joining the shoot from January 29.

Juhi Chawla, who was seen alongside Anil Kapoor in films such as Deewana Mastana and Andaaz among others, will also be joining the unit in February.
