From what is being gathered through a few scenes of Sonam Kapoor‘s upcoming movie, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, speculations are rife that popular South Indian actress, Regina Cassandra, is perhaps playing Sonam’s love interest in the movie based on same-sex romance. The trailer that dropped on Thursday hints at a story of a middle-class girl whose family is bent on hunting a suitable groom for her while she has apparently fallen for another girl, though it isn’t said out loud. Sonam, who plays the protagonist is subtly hinted to be dodging the matchmaking sessions by her family given that she has apparently fallen in love with a girl who isn’t really shown in the trailer for a good measure.

Ever since Thursday, internet sleuths have been critically analysing the trailer and after noticing Regina and Sonam together in a few scenes, have come to the conclusion of the two actresses playing each other’s love interests. The trailer has already turned out to be a big hit and while the movie looks like a mushy romance, the movie is expected to meander around family bonds, a father’s love for his daughter, delve deeper into the intricacies of love and throw light on how one cannot really choose who they fall for, as conceived from the trailer.

Talking about the South debutant in the movie, Regina is a 28-year-old actress who has worked in several Tamil and Telugu movies with movies like Mr. Chandramouli, Awe, Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga and Silukkuvarpatti Singam to her credit.

In an interview with a leading news organisation, Sonam had mentioned, “I’m a huge advocate for LGBTQI (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex). For me, it is one of the most important things that I fight for and I hope for when there is a country and a world without labels.”

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is slated to release next year on February 1 and features Sonam’s actor-father Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Juhi Chawla, Abhishek Duhan, Seema Pahwa and Brijendra Kala. Helmed by Shelly Chopra Dhar, the family entertainer is co-produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Fox Star Studios.
