Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga brings the father-daughter duo Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor together on screen for the first time. The unusual and unique script of the film played the big role to bring this duo together. As the major chord of the film touches upon the issue of the society which needs to be told and has intense bonding between father-daughter, this was the biggest reason that drew Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor to do the film Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga.
The story of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga will be instrumental in pushing the queer conversation forward in India. Representation of the LGBTQ community on celluloid has been a tedious one and with this film, it will be a great concept and lesson to be shared with all the parents out there.
From showing homosexual characters onscreen ridden with stereotypes and used only as fillers, the identity of a gay person has evolved manifold in the Indian film industry and Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga breaks all the stereotype with the mainstream story with a pinch of a twist.
