Last month we reported that Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor will be seen together in Shelly Chopra’s directorial debut, titled ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga’. Now we have learnt that besides this father-daughter duo, the very talented actor Rajkumar Rao has also joined the cast.

Rajkumar has reportedly been roped in to play Sonam’s love interest in the film which has been named after the very popular track from ‘1942 — A Love Story’ starring Anil, Jackie Shroff and Manisha Koirala. It will be the second time Sonam and Rajkumar will be sharing screen space together. They have earlier worked together in ‘Dolly Ki Doli’ and their new collaboration is expected to explore their onscreen chemistry better.

However, when asked Rajkumar about this project, he neither confirmed nor denied it directly. “If it happens I’ll be happy. Right now I’m busy promoting my two upcoming films, Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana and Omerta. I’m a big fan of the films Vinod (Chopra) sir makes under his banner and have long admired his vision,” he said.

‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga’ is said to be a new-age love story and is expected to roll early next year after Sonam and Rajkumar both get free with their current projects, ‘Veere Di Wedding’ and ‘Fanney Khan’ respectively.
