Shelly Chopra’s latest release ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ starring Sonam K Ahuja and Anil Kapoor is being hailed as one of the most progressive films of today’s times. The film that hit the theatres yesterday has been garnering praise from all quarters.
Sonam, in an interview recently, opened up about how she was approached and convinced by the filmmaker to be part of the film. She reportedly said that a producer met her at National Awards and messaged her after it saying Shelly is working on this film. Initially, Sonam felt it was a joke. Later, she came to know Gazal Dhaliwal is the writer of the film who she knew from before. So she was quite excited to work with her.
After she was narrated the scrip, she felt it was amazing and gave her nod for the film. However, she was curious as to who will play her father’s character. Shelly expressed her desire to cast Anil Kapoor for it and even Sonam thought it would be a great idea. When Anil was also given a narration of the script, he too reportedly loved it.
Sonam also reportedly added that anybody who would have been offered this film first, would have said yes to it.
The film also features Rajkummar Rao and Juhi Chawla in pivotal roles.
