Rishi Kapoor has been signed to play the role of Sonam Kapoor‘s father in YRF‘s forthcoming film directed by Nupur Asthana. The film is a romantic comedy starring the fresh pair of Ayushmann and Sonam.
Habib Faisal, who is the writer of this film, was very keen to cast Rishi Kapoor in the said role and approached him. The film will be shot in Delhi and is expected to go on floors in February 2013.
The film is the story of Mohit Chadhdha (Ayushmann) and Mayera Sehgal (Sonam Kapoor) who are strongly and passionately are in love. However Mayera’s wilful bureaucrat father, V.K. Sehgal (Rishi Kapoor), vehemently disagrees. Who gets the last laugh in this slice-of life Delhi-comedy when recession strikes and the lack of money tests love is what forms the crux of this fun-filled satire.
