The film getting tough competition from Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and Vicky Kaushal starrer Uri: The Surgical Strike.

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is a same-sex love story. The concept hasn’t been widely explored on screen for the Indian audience. All the actors received praises for choosing to be a part for such brave project.

Earlier, talking about how Indian audience has evolved enough to accept homosexuality, Sonam said in a media interaction, “Actually, we’re misunderstanding and not understanding that the audience is way more intelligent and way more receptive than we think they are. The people of India are not as regressive as much as we think they are.”

The movie is directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra.

On a related note, Sonam will next be seen in The Zoya Factor with Dulquer Salmaan. Rajkummar, on the other hand, has Mental Hai Kya and Made in China in his kitty.
