‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha’ looks mushy, likeable – Check Here

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha

Anil Kapoor has waited patiently to play his daughters father on screen. The process took time. One cant grab every offer that comes your way to do your real-life rishta on screen.

“Neither Sonam nor I wanted it to be gimmick…you know, ‘Get Father-Daughter At The Price Of One Ticket’ kind of things,” said Anil reminding me of Sara Ali Khan who says, “Whenever Abba (Saif Ali Khan) and I come together it has to be a really special script.”

Looks like Anil and Sonam have found that special script. “Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga” has a lengthy title that may remind you of the titles of V Shantaram’s films. But the referential resonance is refreshing. Ek ladki ko dekha was the iconic song that Anil Kapoor sang to the irradiant Manisha Koirala in Vinod Chopra’s “1942: A Love Story”.

And now it is Vinod Chopra’s sister Shelly Chopra Dhar directing Anil Kapoor and his daughter in a love story that offers the healing comfort of shayari, nazaaqat, ched chad, and other innocuous games of courtship that we seldom see in our movies anymore.

So what is the problem? Very simple, really. Sonam’s love-interest is of Islamic origin. Rajkummar Rao brings his natural exuberance to a plot that brims over with bonhomie and positivity.

You really can’t miss the film’s sense of blithe radiance. As though all the strife and violence of the world has vanished. There is only Sonam’s smile, Anil Kapoor’s grin and Rajkummar Rao’s shy courtship.

Oh yes, Juhi Chawla woos Anil Kapoor while Rajkummar woos Sonam.

‘Woo’ kya kehta hain? Love ke liye coochiecoo bhi karega. Cuddly, winsome and blissfully oblivious of political ramifications Ek Ladki Ko Dekha …. Could be 2019’s fluff-love story that we all have not been waiting for. But don’t mind seeing anyway.

Mira-shahid

Mumbai, Jan 19: Actor Shahid Kapoor says he and his wife Mira have a different approach when it comes to parenting. He says she tells him to calm down a bit when it comes to their two children, while he feels she is “too casual”.

Shahid opened up about his married life, parenting, his film career and more on an upcoming episode of “Famously Filmfare Season 2”, to go live on Colors Infinity, Colors Infinity HD, Voot and Jio on Sunday, read a statement.

On being asked if being protective about his children was a ripple effect of his parent’s separation, Shahid said: “My wife tells me that I am a little obsessive and protective and that I need to calm down a little bit. I tell her that she is too casual. Having said that, we try and find the middle ground which I think is good for the kids because you need to have both types of parents.

“If both are too obsessive or both are too careless I don’t think that works, so you need to find that balance.”

Shahid and Mira got married in 2015. They have a daughter named Misha and son named Zain.

Moving away from centrestage is heartbreaking for any actor: Abhishek Bachchan

Mumbai, Jan 19: Actor Abhishek Bachchan’s last few movies before his sabbatical that ended with “Manmarziyaan” were majorly second leads in big budget movies. He says it’s heartbreaking for any actor who has been at centrestage to move away.

Asked how much of a problem it is to stand behind a bigger star, he told filmmaker and “Koffee With Karan” host Karan Johar: “It is heartbreaking to any actor who has been centrestage to be shadowed by another actor in the lead.”

“The industry is a brutal place. I don’t think anyone is entitled to say that I am who I am so I deserve this. No, you have to earn it. Moving from centre to left is heartbreaking but you have to use that hurt to inspire yourself to get back into the centre again.”

In the upcoming episode of “Koffee with Karan”, to be aired on Star World on Sunday, Abhishek was joined on the couch by his sister Shweta Bachchan Nanda, a statement said.

Last year, Abhishek was seen in “Manmarziyaan”, which came two years after he featured in “Housefull 3”. He says his sabbatical from the industry was a result of a self-realisation about complacency towards his work.

Karan asked Abhishek: “Is there a reason you took this backseat from cinema, did you feel the pressure of what was happening in your career, that’s why?”

Abhishek replied: “It’s tricky Karan. I don’t think it was the pressure of what was happening. Rather it was more about my approach towards my work which I thought was incorrect. I was becoming very complacent and comfortable.”

“To call a spade a spade, I was part of huge films, huge budgets, huge stars, huge collections, everything was hunky dory. I had no pressure on me because I was standing behind somebody else who takes all the pressure. I was making lots of money and so were those films…it became very easy. I didn’t come to industry to stand behind anyone,” he added.
