2018 unconventional love drama Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga received many positive reviews and has been critically acclaimed. Starring Sonam Kapoor, the film had her father Anil Kapoor in her father role, on the screen too.
However, when rumours have spread that actress Taapsee Pannu has been first roped in for the role instead of Sonam Kapoor, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra has come forward to clear the truth. He said only Sonam was approached first and did not even think of any other actress. He also went on to say that he never met Taapsee in his life.
He gave a strong reply to all the media reports about the news on Taapsee Pannu being offered a role in Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga. ”I am the producer of the film and I have never met Taapsee in my life. Sonam was the first person cast in the film even before Anil Kapoor. This clarification is a matter principle. Articles like this undermine the movie-making process and are making a mockery out of a film that means a lot to us and the whole LGBTQI community,” he quoted.
The film was highly lauded for its unique concept as the story is all about same-sex marriage. Sonam Kapoor falls in love with another girl and she has to hide this truth out of fear. Later, on her father’s decision, she goes on to marry a writer, Rajkummar Rao, who is in love with her. As a husband, Rajkummar helps her come out to her family and society, making the whole story stand out.
