Anil Kapoor and daughter Sonam are set to star in their first film together, ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga’. Directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s sister Shelly Chopra Dhar, the title of the film is from Anil’s popular ‘1942: A Love Story’ (1994). Now, the team are all set to recreate the love ballad in an new rendition.

Dhar confirmed the news to Mirror, saying, “Yes, we are recreating the original and we want to replicate its iconic status. It’s hard to beat the original so I will be happy if we are at par with it. However, we’ll have to wait and see who sings the new version and for whom in the film.”

Sonam and Anil are also taking care of each other on the sets as well. Dhar revealed, “On their first day together, I gave the clap and called it a historical shot as it was the first time we had two big stars who are also father and daughter. Anil is a typical dad who asks us to take Sonam’s shots first; I find it endearing. We have been shooting at night and it gets nippy at times, so Sonam is constantly checking up on her father.”

‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga’ also stars Juhi Chawla and Rajkummar Rao.
