It has been 40-years since Anil Kapoor has been in the film industry and he has won our hearts on several occasions through his outstanding acting. At this age, the evergreen actor has a plethora of projects lined up for the coming days including ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’. In this film, Anil Kapoor will be seen sharing the screen space with his daughter Sonam Kapoor for the first time.

The film ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga‘ touches upon the issue of the society that needs to be told and has intense bonding between father-daughter and this was the biggest reason that drew Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor together to do the film.

The story of ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ will be instrumental in pushing the queer conversation forward in India. Representation of the (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, ally, pansexual) LGBTQ community on celluloid has been a tedious one and with ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ it will be a great concept and lesson to be shared with all the parents out there.

From showing homosexual characters onscreen ridden with stereotypes and used only as fillers, the identity of a gay person has evolved manifold in the Indian film industry and it breaks all the stereotype with the mainstream story with a pinch of a twist.

A few days earlier, the makers of ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ released the title track and a Punjabi wedding song ‘Ishq Mitha’ which has garnered immense love from the audiences. The title song of the film is a recreated version of ‘1942 A Love Story’, the Anil Kapoor, and Manisha Koirala musical that ruled 90s India and ‘Ishq Mitha’ is perfect wedding song of the season.

Fox Star Studio presents ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and is directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar. The film is scheduled to release on February 1, 2019.
