Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is one of the biggest films that released this year. The movie is an unconventional love story where Sonam Kapoor played the lead role alongside her real and reel life father, superstar Anil Kapoor. Rumours have been doing the round that Taapsee Pannu was the original choice for the film. However, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra has cleared the air by saying that Sonam was the first actor to be casted in the film and he has never even met Taapsee.

In an official statement the producer said, “This is to address all the media reports that have been floating around in the media about Taapsee Pannu being the offered Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga. I am the producer of the film and I have never met her 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.”

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is an unconventional story of same-sex love. Sweety, played by Sonam Kapoor, has to hide the truth that she is in love with another girl, Kuhu. To please her father, Anil Kapoor, she decides to marry a writer, Rajkummar Rao, who is in love with her. Rao helps her come out to her family and society.

Meanwhile, Sonam Kapoor is gearing up for her next film The Zoya Factor opposite Dulquer Salmaan, which will be releasing on June 14th.

Sonam is a decent actor. Y'all are forever going to hate on her for her comments on your idol queen.

This is how Bollywood works. Daddy giving roles to their daughter on silver platter. Tapsi Pannu is 100 times more talented than Sonam. Of course the movie flopped

She was the weakest link in the movie, horrible acting, nepokid

Offers can come from the director or others ,doesn't have to be from Chopra himself.

Sonam just spoilt this movie while everyone else in the movie were so bloody good. She is in the same bracket as Nargis Fakri.

Sonam acted so poorly!! She will do better in roles where she doent need to open her mouth.

..and sonam was bloody horrible in the movie !
