Sonam Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Juhi Chawla and Anil Kapoor starring Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, is hoping to impress the viewers. The story revolves around an unhappily married woman who discovers her father’s infidelity with a co-worker and reveals her love preferences to the husband.
This most unexpected tale of the year has been produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani and was directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar. The movie is set to be released on February 1.
Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor starrer is expected to open with a decent collection at box office. Fakir of Venice will also be released on Friday but it will not affect the box office collection of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. Although, the homosexuality based film might face competition from last week’s release Manikarnika and Vicky Kaushal’s Uri which has been going strong at the ticket counters.
As per trade analyst Girish Johar, the film will earn somewhere around Rs 2.5-3 crore on its opening day.
The trailer presents a good intermingling of the Bollywood romance and the modern outlook of the present.
In the trailer the lead, Sonam Kapoor can be seen thinking about her love story where she wishes to fall in love with one who will adore her in the best possible way. The colourful, musical glamsham and Anil Kapoor’s powerful acting makes the trailer and hopefully the movie a worth watch.
Sonam after marrying Raj, who her family thinks is her choice, goes on to reveals her love preference to him.
The movie’s storyline reads, “Love should not come with any labels and it should set one free. Sweety’s love story comes with a secret which complicates her relationship with her family. Will this secret be accepted by her family and society? Will her family come to terms with her secret and help?”
In the new poster, we get to see Sonam hugging another female actor who is Regina Cassandra in the film.
The film also reignites the popular jodi of Anil Kapoor and Juhi Chawla, who have given major hits like Loafer, Benaam Badsha, Jhooth Bole Kauwwa Kaate and Deewane Mastane. Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga also stars Regina Cassandra and Brijendra Kala in pivotal roles.
The film asks viewers to not discriminate love on the basis of caste or sex. It is the first movie to come up on the big screen after the landmark judgement of the Supreme Court which decriminalised homosexuality striking out Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code.
