The teaser of the film released earlier in June, which featured snippets of Anil Kapoor's cult classic the 1942: A Love Story. The tile of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is also borrowed from the most popular song of 1942: A Love Story's playlist. The teaser of the new film is also set to a beautiful rendition of the song Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga.
Earlier in October, Sonam had said that there could have been no better project than this to mark her first collaboration with Anil Kapoor: "When you watch Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, you will realise that it was the best film for dad and me to come together for the first time," Sonam said in a statement.
Sonam Kapoor, who is busy with her work commitments in Delhi, sent out a heart-wrenching note to Anil Kapoor on his birthday along with a BTS shot from Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga sets.

Happy happy birthday Dad... this has been a momentous year for both of us. For the first time in 10 years of being in this industry I shared a frame with you and was your costar.. And you also had to see me get married.. all this was a complete roller coaster... hard and beautiful at the same time.. I'm thankful for the teachings of love, progressive ideals and morals that have been a part of my upbringing , and each year I realise more and more what a gift that is in this day and age.. love you so much... @anilskapoor #ekladkikodekhatohaisalaga
