We love it when we get a little bit of reality in our fictional stories, especially on-screen. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why we get excited whenever a real-life Bollywood parent is paired together with their children in the same movie.
That’s exactly what Sonam Kapoor and Anil Kapoor bring to Ek Ladki Ko Daikha Tou Aisa Laga. The fact that this is a remake of Anil Kapoor’s Ek Ladke Ko Daikha is pretty sweet too, but the parent-child casting overshadows that.
