Shahid Kapoor to wed Alia Bhatt in a 'Shandaar' location
Director Vikas Bahl of ‘Queen’ fame is already working on his new project. It is a film called ‘Shandaar’ which stars Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. While the fresh pairing of lead actors helped raise some interest about the film, there are more interesting facts about the film. In a first of its kind, ‘Shandaar’ will be a film on destination wedding that will depict an Indian family going to Europe.
Apart from Shahid and Alia, the cast also reportedly includes Shahid’s father and veteran actor Pankaj Kapur. However, Pankaj Kapur will not play Shahid’s father but Alia’s. In another unique casting coupe, director Vikas Bahl is bringing back almost forgotten actor Sanjay Kapoor for an important role in the film. Sanjay Kapoor has not been seen on screen for many years. He was recently involved with the production of the film 'Tevar', starring his nephew Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha.
After the work on ‘Tevar’ was finished he flew to London to meet with the director and the cast and will be staying with them till the shooting ends. The casting coupe does not end here. Shahid’s sister and Pankaj Kapur’s daughter, Sanah Kapur will also be part of the film. Sanah has recently completed an acting course from the Lee Stratsberg Theatre & Film Institute in New York, U.S. It looks like the wedding film is becoming a rather ‘family’ affair.
Shahid is reportedly working on a new look for the film. He and the director have been visiting hair stylists. As per reports they have almost decided on it. His hairstyle in the film needs to fit with both Indian and Western looks. Shahid has also recently experimented big time with his look in the upcoming film ‘Haider’. This adoption of ‘Hamlet’ is coming out on 2nd October. Shahid even shaved his hair for the film and sports a rugged, sinister look.Pankaj Kapur also has an interesting release coming up in the form of ‘Finding Fanny’. It is a quirky comedy in which he will be joined by actors like Naseeruddin Shah, Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia. Alia Bhatt is also currently on a high after the success of her last release ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’. The romantic comedy was praised by both critics and audiences and has firmly established Alia Bhatt as one of the best young stars in the Bollywood industry.
