Oscars Library requests ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ for their screenplay
‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ has been creating buzz among the audience owing to its concept. Now, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has requested a copy of the film’s screenplay for the permanent Core Collection.
Materials in the Core Collection are made available for study only in the library’s reading room; scripts never circulate from the building and all copying is strictly forbidden. It is a research library freely open to all — students, filmmakers and writers as well as those with a general interest in movies.
Previously VVC Films had sent them copies of ‘Broken Horses’ and ‘Sanju’ scripts for their library.
‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ brought the father-daughter duo Anil Kapoor-Sonam Kapoor together onscreen for the first time. The unusual and unique script of the film played a big role to bring this duo together. Speaking to Bollywood Bubble, Sonam had said that she was pretty nervous while giving the first shot with her dad. Anil too reiterated the same during the interaction and said that despite being nervous Sonam’s shot was okayed in one take while he had to give three retakes.
The film has an ensemble cast of Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Juhi Chawla. The story of ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ is instrumental in pushing the queer conversation forward in India.
The film hit theatres on February 1 and has been doing well at the box-office.
