Seasoned actor Anil Kapoor, who has just finished shooting for his part in the much-awaited film Race 3, starts shooting for his next movie, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga from today. To be directed by debutante Shelly Chopra, the film goes on floors in Patiala, Rajasthan.

Confirming the news to an Indian daily, Shelly said, “I just came back from a meeting with Anil and he is like a kid, extremely excited about his role. His character sports a look that hasn’t been seen on him in a long time. We will be shooting at a family house in Patiala, which is a perfect setting for the film. I am shooting entirely at real locations as I want the film to develop as organically as possible. We can’t wait to start rolling now.”

This will be the first time when Anil Kapoor will be sharing the screen space with her daughter Sonam Kapoor. Sonam, who is currently busy promoting her forthcoming film, Pad Man, will join the team on 29th January.

In addition to Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga also stars veteran actress Juhi Chawla and Rajkummar Rao in important roles.

The film is being produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
