In a interview, Shelly Chopra shared her feelings about being able to bring father- duaghter duo Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor together on bring screen for the very first time. She says their off-screen chemistry played an important part during the film’s making and that they are perfect for their roles.

“Being a father and daughter as they are, it was a perfect combination for me and fortunately they agreed on the script. It’s their first film together. They are both professionals and great actors. Somewhere it helps if you are father and daughter in real life. It definitely helped the film,” Chopra told PTI.

The film also features Rajkummar Rao and Juhi Chawla. 

“Raj has an amazing role. He is an awesome actor. Juhi too is amazing in the film. They have done something totally different this time,” she said.

“I don’t want to say anything more because I want you all to enjoy the film. It’s a story about love and relationship,” she concluded.  

The film, produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani in association with Fox Star Studios, is set to hit the theatres on February 1.
