- The film opened to positive reviews from the critics
On Saturday, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra hosted a house party and called over the cast and crew of his recently released film. Anil Kapoor, who plays the role of Sonam Kapoor's reel life father Balbir Choudhary in the Shelly Chopra Dhar-directed film, checked in at the party dressed in a black traditional outfit. The 62-year-old actor, who walked the ramp for celebrated designer Raghavendra Rathore at Lakme Fashion Week with niece Janhvi Kapoor last night, arrived in the same outfit which he wore for the event. Actress Regina Cassandra, who plays one of the female protagonists in the film, was also part of the house party. For the house party, Juhi Chawla was dressed in pink and white traditional outfit. Singers Sukhwinder Singh, Darshan Raval and Arjun Kanungo also attended the party. Sonam Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao were not photographed at the party.
Sonam Kapoor's Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, which hit the screens on Friday, did not have a very impressive start at the box office. Despite opening at the theatres with positive reviews, the film garnered Rs 3.30 crore on Day 1.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film 4 stars it of 5. "In the end, it is a sensitive, tender and humour-laced melodrama that hinges as much on the relationship between a lonely, misunderstood small-town Punjab girl and her doting father as on the heroine's sexual orientation, which drives her into a difficult-to-break shell," he wrote.
Speaking about the film in an interview to news agency IANS, Rajkummar Rao said that Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is all about "acceptance". "This film is more about acceptance. This is a family film, relationship drama, it is about friendship, love. I believe there has to be equality, you can't judge someone based on sexual preference. It is their life and who they want as their partners, it is a normal thing. It talks about things that are relevant in our society," Rajkummar Rao said.
