Sonam Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, and Juhi Chawla starrer Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga and Farhan Akhtar’s The Fakir of Venice are all set to hit cinema halls today. In Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, Sonam is working with her father, Anil, for the first time and she is essaying an LGBTQ character in the movie.
The actor during the promotions of her film said that it is easy to stereotype people. "Like, if you are a heroine, you are diva with low morals, a fashion model is shown as drugged and that media people often lie. There will be stereotypes everywhere and my endeavour is to break the stereotypes. Stereotypes are so dangerous," she said.
Sonam said it was important for her that her character's love story is shown as authentically as possible. "It is important for me that the project is as authentic as possible. Just because you decide to love somebody that might not be of the opposite sex, does not mean you are different. Love is love. You cannot choose who you fall in love with." Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is helmed by Shelly Chopra Dhar.
Farhan’s drama/comedy film The Fakir of Venice is directed by Anand Surapur. Apart from Farhan, the film stars Annu Kapoor and Kamal Sidhu in pivotal roles.
