Anil & Sonam Together on Screen, but Not as Father-Daughter 

Vidhu Vinod Chopra brings together Anil Kapoor and his daughter Sonam Kapoor  for the first time in Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. The film’s title is taken from Vinod Chopra’s iconic Anil Kapoor-ManishaKoirala-Javed Akhtar-R D Burman  song  in 1942: A  Love Story released in 1994.

Looks  like the nostalgia industry is in full bloom in Bollywood. Apparently Vinod Chopra’s sister Shelley Chopra would direct the father-daughter pair… so that’s two shouts for nepotism in the entertainment industry within one project.

But the  most interesting part of  the renewed song saga has now come  to the surface with a source very close to the proposed project revealing that Anil and Sonam won’t be playing father and daughter in the film.

“That’s way too boring and  predictable. Ek Ladki Ki Dekha Toh Aisa Laga won’t feature Anil and Sonam Kapoor as father and  daughter. It would be so much more exciting to cast them in roles different  from their real-life ones, just  like Bachchan Saab and Abhishek in  Bunty Aur Babli,” says  the well informed source.
