Sonam and Rao had earlier come together for Dolly Ki Doli, in which she dupes rich men into marrying her and eventually abandons them. Although neither the makers, nor Rao has confirmed the development, speculations of him playing Sonam’s love interest are rife.
Rao has two films lined up for release — Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana and Omerta. Sonam, on the other hand, is filming her home production Veere Di Wedding, which also stars Kareena Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania.
Vidhu Vinod Chopra confirmed Anil and Sonam’s involvement during the Jio MAMI 19th Mumbai Film Festival, according to the Mumbai Mirror report. “That’s a big thing. I am very excited about that. Anil Kapoor coming together with us to make Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, is just incredible. Anil and Sonam are both there in the film. I am really looking forward to it,” he told the reporters at the event.
